About the authors
Alex Ross studied illustration at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, then honed his craft as a storyboard artist before entering the comics field. His miniseries Marvels (Marvel Comics, 1993) opened a wider acceptance for painted comics. In 1996 he moved on to produce the equally successful Kingdom Come for DC Comics, and an extensive series of work including Uncle Sam, Justice, and Astro City. Ross has simultaneously continued to produce work for Marvel Comics, including the Earth X trilogy, as well as covers for the monthly Spider-Man and Avengers comic books. His most recent title for Abrams ComicArts was Fantastic Four: Full Circle, the first title in the Marvel Arts line, which was a national bestseller. He lives in Glenview, Illinois.
