Alex Ross is acclaimed as one of the leading illustrators in comic art today. His realistic, human depictions of classic comic book characters has cemented his position in the pantheon of comic book and contemporary pop culture illustrators. Earth X, a comic book series published in 1999, was based on a concept by Alex Ross. It featured an alternate version of the Marvel Universe where all ordinary humans had gained superpowers, and superheroes were now commonplace. This painting by Alex Ross, from a drawing by John Paul Leon, one of the variant covers for Earth X #0, published in March 1999, features iconic poses of Captain America, Thor, The Hulk, Spider-Man, Daredevil, Human Torch and Doctor Strange. This artwork was created in a limited edition as a gicleÃ© print with archival inks on premium canvas and paper. Each piece of the edition has been numbered and is signed by Alex Ross. This image is also available on paper.

Sometimes described as "digital lithographs", giclees are created using extremely sophisticated computer equipment to create a reproduction virtually indistinguishable from the original.
Most giclees start with an original painting or illustration in oil, watercolour, or charcoal. The original work is scanned and colour corrected under the supervision of the artist before being printed with a extremely high resolution giclee printer. From the French term for "spray of ink", giclee printers lay down millions of microscopic ink droplets with such precision that the images, colours, and subtle nuances of the original piece are reproduced with breathtaking accuracy and beauty.
Giclees are created on high quality acid-free rag paper or on canvas, and are generally done in limited editions of no more than 750 pieces. They are often signed by the artist.
Limited edition giclees are a beautiful addition to any home and any art collection.
