Here are the most beloved comics characters in the world, as you’ve never seen them before: brought to life at the hands of one of the most astonishing young artists working in the medium today, Alex Ross.

Ross has often been dubbed the Norman Rockwell of comics, but he is much more than that—he is the great American success story, the product of years of hard work and a lifelong love of these classic super heroes.

From the award-winning team of designer/writer Chip Kidd and photographer Geoff Spear, Mythology also features an introduction by M. Night Shyamalan, the acclaimed director of Signs and The Sixth Sense.

Ross’ images are like film stills from the best super hero movies that never got made—and probably never will. The huge cast of the DC Comics universe is all here: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman, the Atom, and plenty more. Highlighting the best of Ross' considerable career at DC, Mythology also features hundreds of never-before-seen sketches, limited edition prints, and rarities.

And, a DC Comics first: an exclusive, original Superman-Batman story written by Kidd and painted by Ross.
ALEX ROSS is one of the most popular comic book writers and artists in the world. A multiple Eisner Award winner, he has worked for every major comics publisher, including DC, Marvel, Image, Dark Horse, and Dynamite Entertainment. He lives in the Chicago suburbs.
