"Aquaman is always a character I've loved because I grew up with him," Ross tells SYFY WIRE. "He was always seen as an equal to all the other superheroes, and being part of the short roster of the Superfriends, he is of equal standing to Wonder Woman, Superman, and Batman."

For this exclusive fine art offering, Ross is presenting his stoic illustration that originally appeared in JLA: Secret Origins. Ross invites viewers into the blued-hued underwater realm of Arthur Curry and takes fans on a visual journey to the fabled origins of Aquaman. It begins with the fateful meeting of Aquaman’s parents — Tom Curry is a Maine lighthouse keeper who one night meets the alluring Atlanna, a refugee princess from the storied lost city of Atlantis. Communicating and commanding the creatures of the deep, their son Arthur later grows up to become the legendary Aquaman, the King of Atlantis and one of the founding members of the Justice League of America.

Origins: Aquaman will be available on Thursday, Dec. 20, at 3 p.m. EST in an edition of 100 and comes professionally matted on foam core for $50 plus shipping. Each lyrical fine art print measures 14 1/2" x 15 1/2", is hand-numbered, and includes an official Certificate of Authenticity.

Fans interested in purchasing this enticing print are strongly urged to join the waitlist on the Alex Ross website before they all swim away.
