Eisner Award-winning artist Alex Ross has thrown his hat into the ring to provide two wonderful variant covers for the upcoming release of Detective Comics 1000. Amongst the most iconic artists in the industry, Ross has previously illustrated truly seminal works such as Kingdom Come, Justice and his own collection, Mythology.
Known for his intense style, Ross has transcended the genre to become synonymous with artwork that renders the greatest superheroes and villains in a real world and believable style.
These two sumptuous covers include Ross’ tribute to Detective Comics #27, and are a treat for all fans out there. The artist recently spoke to SYFY WIRE about the cover:
This is a re-creation I’ve been wanting to do for 20 years. I’m happy to get a chance to do it now, with an even bigger milestone.
