| March 24, 2004 | Heritage Auction (Mar 2004)
There's nothing of interest in the latest Heritage Auction, except for the description to the Warner Brothers Print:
1454: Alex Ross and George Perez - Crisis On
Starts at: US $100.00
Auction Date: Apr-02-04 15:00:00 PST
and George Perez - "Crisis On Infinite Earths" Limited Edition Print,
#184/350 (Warner Brothers, 2000). Originally sold in the Warner
Brothers retail stores, this mind-boggling image, drawn from the
mid-'80s reboot known as Crisis on Infinite Earths, was penciled by the
legendary George Perez, and then painted by the estimable Alex Ross. A
virtual "Where's Waldo?" of the DC universe, this features practically
every superhero (and quite a few villains!) that engaged in the Crisis;
a stunning achievement, especially when you realize that Perez and Ross
have not sacrificed one ounce of clarity in the portraying literally
hundreds of characters in one drawing. This extremely limited edition
originally retailed for $575. The print measures 43" x 25", and is
accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. The print has been signed
by both Perez and Ross in the lower right corner.
| November 30, 2003 | Mythology: Art of Alex Ross
MYTHOLOGY: THE DC COMICS ART OF ALEX ROSS features a six-page section on Alex Ross's painting on George Pérez's CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS HC and CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS TPB, which was also printed in DC's largest poster to date: CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS POSTER (1999) and CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS LITHOGRAPH (1999).
MYTHOLOGY: THE DC COMICS ART OF ALEX ROSS
Ross said he was 15 when he read CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS
and thought it was everything that excited him in comic book. He also
described what a pleasure it was for him to work with George Perez on
the Crisis cover, despite the fact that it took him over 30 days to
completely paint it.
The two pages that I thought was really
cool is a character study of the two Supermen and a one-page close-up
detail of Superman [I]'s face.
