Alex Ross fans are in for a treat, as Sideshow presents this new ‘Protectors of the Universe’ fine art print from the artist. The print features a plethora of DC comic book characters, such as Flash, Shazam!, Martian Manhunter, Wonder Woman, Superman, Aquaman, Green Lantern, Green Arrow, Black Canary, Hawkgirl, Plastic Man, the Atom, Batman, and Hawkman. That’s 14, count them, 14 members of the Justice League.
About this print
“They are beings of great power and greater commitment, working miracles for all mankind. And sheltering us when the sky is falling.”
Sideshow and Alex Ross Art present the Protectors of the Universe Fine Art Lithograph.
Ross’ hyper-realistic rendering of the Justice League is as radiant as the glimmering sunbeams behind them in this detailed DC Comics composition. The fearless heroes rocket through outer space towards Earth’s surface, ready to stand for its people and defend the world from evil. The Protectors of the Universe Fine Art Lithograph features fourteen iconic members of the Justice League including the Flash, SHAZAM!, Martian Manhunter, Wonder Woman, Superman, Aquaman, Green Lantern, Green Arrow, Black Canary, Hawkgirl, Plastic Man, the Atom, Batman, and Hawkman.
Originally created as a cover illustration for Absolute Justice League: The World’s Greatest Super-Heroes, written by Paul Dini for DC Comics in 2002, this fine art lithograph has been specially reproduced in a limited edition of 250 pieces. Each Protectors of the Universe Fine Art Lithograph is hand-signed by Alex Ross and includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
The Justice League will protect your DC Comics collection when you bring home the Protectors of the Universe Fine Art Lithograph by Alex Ross.
About the artist
Considered one of the greatest artists in the field of comic books, Alex Ross has revitalized classic Super Heroes into works of fine art with his brilliant use of gouache paint. Ross has transformed comic books by building on the foundation of great artists who came before him. Ross’ paintings have revolutionized the comic book industry and transcended the newsstand origins of his profession.
There’s no doubt that this is another amazing piece of work from Alex Ross, one of the most recognisable comic book artists of all time. This piece follows on from the Teen Titans art print that we wrote about in October. To make this even better, each print is hand signed by Alex Ross himself.
There are two options to consider if you want to purchase this; you can buy the print only, or there is the option to buy a print framed in a very nice black frame. They’re both available to pre-order on the Sideshow website right now, and they have an estimated arrival date of Dec ’20 to Jan ’21.
