It seems Christmas is coming in October for comics fans this year as yet another gift has been announced. Legendary artist Alex Ross will be releasing a collection of portraits, done in his signature realism style, of Marvel Comics characters in the Timeless Variant Covers series.
Says Marvel’s Executive Editor, Tom Brevoort, of Ross’ work: “His work makes people relate to these fantastical characters in an entirely new way–they become plausible and real without giving up their larger-than-life qualities in the process.”
You can read all about the collection, and take a peek at the portraits, from the official Marvel press release below.
