Been a fan for years and wondered if anyone else here likes his deco style of renditions he does for superheros such as Superman.

In fact, his version of Superman is the best portrayal of Superman ever done in my opinion. Very 1930's Norman Rockwellesque.

Yes, I bought the "Marvels" series which when it came out. It started with the Human Torch, Sub-Mariner and other 1940s Marvel charcters (that ties it into the Fedora Lounge ;) ) It even had a cameo by Clark Savage and Lamont Cranston.
I bought the hardback of his Dc work, Mythology also.

I absolutely love his stuff.

Sincerely,
The Wolf

I absolutely adore his work, ever since I first became aware of him when a friend let me borrow his copy of Marvels about a decade ago.

So now I've got Marvels, Kingdom Come, Superman: Peace On Earth, Batman: War On Crime, and the excellent coffeetable book collecting his work for DC, Mythology.

I love his photorealistic paintings of these iconic characters... which somehow simultaneously adds a touch of realism and a feel of timeless myth. Great, great stuff!

See the galleries at his site for some idea of what I mean:

I started buying Astro City when it made it's debut and think it's the most human of any comic series about humans with extraordinary attributes.

I also purchased this recent Alex Ross-designed T-shirt strictly as a collectible, never-to-leave-the-packaging item.
