Alex Ross Coming Back To MARVEL For Special 75th Anniversary Covers
Alex Ross is a legend. There’s no arguing that. The artist has been providing covers for various titles the past several years, most notably for Dynamite. It was announced today that the painter would be returning to Marvel in 2014 for a series of variant covers celebrating the publisher’s 75th Anniversary.
The first cover from Ross will be or Avengers #25 by Jonathan Hickman and Esad Ribic. It will be released January 15th. That will be the first of Ross‘ 12 anniversary variants for Marvel, with one presumably gracing the cover of one select book a month. The image released today shows an impressive array of characters from Thor, Captain America, Loki, Hulk, and many many more. Marvel said Ross will get to bring a lot of the pantheon of characters to live from the Marvel Universe for the covers. This will be Ross‘ first work for the company since 2011′s Invaders Now! miniseries co-published by Dynamite. Alex Ross is one of my personal favorite cover artists, so this is very welcomed news in the Thorverine household. What do you think about Ross coming back to do cover work for Marvel?
