March is a monster month for pop culture conventions, with Seattle's Emerald City Comic Con rolling out last weekend in the Pacific Northwest, and Chicago's C2E2 blasting through the Windy City this coming weekend. One of Illinois' most acclaimed residents is the masterful artist Alex Ross, and he's bringing a treasure of lithos, prints, and signed covers to the Heroic Fine Art Booth at C2E2.
An enticing Alex Ross Art exclusive being made available at C2E2 is this magnificent Avengers fine art lithograph, originally used as a cover for Marvel's Avengers #700. And SYFY WIRE has a sneak peek with details on how to score one for your own walls.
Admit it: no mortal manifests the Marvel Universe like Ross, with his charismatic renderings of superteam assemblies and dastardly villains from the House of Ideas' entire roster of legendary heroes. From early portrayals in 1994's Marvels to his most recent covers for Captain America and the Incredible Hulk, Ross delivers caped crusaders in a captivating air of drama and realism.
To celebrate Ross’s multitude of contributions to the Marvel universe, Alex Ross Art is announcing an exclusive, all-new lithograph titled Avengers 700. First seen as an illustration for Avengers #700 (Vol. 7 #10), it depicts valiant members of the Avengers team gathered from past and present with Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man heading up the attack. Measuring 21 1/2" x 16" and signed by Ross, it's hand-numbered, includes a Certificate of Authenticity, and will be released in a strict edition of 100 pieces at the price of $195 each.
“This is the prime Avengers, as I see them, with every member of the team that defines it," Ross tells SYFY WIRE.
Opportunities to acquire one of these striking lithographs will come in two forms: First, it will be offered on the floor at C2E2 (3/22-3/24) through Alex Ross Art’s gallery partner, Heroic Fine Art. Secondly, for fans not attending the con, Alex Ross Art is offering a limited quantity available at AlexRossArt.com but supplies are extremely restricted. Those interested are highly encouraged to join the waitlist here for when they're released online Friday, Mar. 22 at 3 p.m. ET.
