   ロスはしばしば「コミック界のノーマン・ロックウェル」と呼ばれるが、この本では、上記の古典的なスーパーヒーローに対する彼の終生変わらぬ情熱だけでなく、ロス自身による作画も見ることができる。本書は読者をスタジオに案内し、興味深い創作過程をこっそり見せてくれる本なのだ。ロスの力強いアートとキッドのキテチック・デザインが一緒になると、『キングダム・カム』や『スーパーマン:ピース・オン・アース』『バットマン:ウォー・オン・クライム』『Uncle Sam』を含むロスの手がけた印象的な画像は、280ページ以上ある本から飛び出してくる。他にも、無数の未公開スケッチや限定版、キャラクターの模型が含まれている。また、ロスの驚くべき表現法から生まれるキャラクターの元祖として、いたるところに古いDCコミックのパネル画が収録されている。

   ロスのファンを最も興奮させるのは、この本がDCコミック中心である点だろう。キッドの脚本にロスの作画の、ここでしか見られないスーパーマン&バットマンのオリジナルストーリーや、ポール・ディニ脚本の新作のバットマン&ロビンも含まれているのだ。『Mythology』は、どのページを開いても、ここで称賛されるヒーローたちのパワー爆発の1冊だ。 --このテキストは、絶版本またはこのタイトルには設定されていない版型に関連付けられています。



Mythology returns, in a newly expanded paperback edition of the book Entertainment Weekly awarded a grade of A, saying: “Alex Ross brings to his work an unparalleled sense of the real. His heroes–both super and mortal–have weight; they exist in space, and that space is affected by them in ways never before seen on the page.” And so here they are, the incomparable cast of the DC Comics universe: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Aquaman, the Green Lantern, and the rest of the Justice League as you’ve never seen them before. Mythology brings together the best loved comic characters in the world, brought to life by Alex Ross, one of the most astonishing young artists working in the medium today. The award-winning designer/writer Chip Kidd and photographer Geoff Spear have teamed up to create a book like no other, with an introduction by M. Night Shyamalan, the acclaimed director of The Village and The Sixth Sense.

Ross has often been called the Norman Rockwell of comics, and this book reveals not only his lifelong love of these classic superheroes but also his vision: Mythology takes you into the studio for a behind-the-scenes look at his fascinating creative process. The combination of Ross’s dynamic art and Kidd’s kinetic design makes images from his most memorable stories–including Kingdom Come, Superman: Peace on Earth, Batman: War on Crime, and Uncle Sam–soar off the more than 300 pages.

The new material centers on Ross’s startling new comic book series, Justice, including sketches, preliminary art, prototype figures, and more. Mythology is a book in which every page explodes with the power of the icons it celebrates.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Alex Ross ....at work behind the scenes 2015/1/9
投稿者 R. Parry - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
I'm a baby boomer and love the mythology in superhero comics. If you like DC comics, then this book is for you.
If you like Alex Ross's interpretation of DC comic characters or just his amazing artwork, this book is for you.
If you want to know more about Alex's biographical and professional history beginning with childhood, family influences, professional beginnings and into his creative process .... this book is for you. The wonderful writer/designer Chip Kidd and photographer Geoff Spear have teamed up to produce an extraordinary "illustrated biography" of Alex Ross and his DC characters. Kidd's text is descriptive and insightful and includes numerous studies, hundreds of sketches and artwork and photos on almost every single page that highlight Ross's creative process and method. In addition to Kidd's narrative, the book is peppered with Alex Ross quotes and personal insights. I am especially drawn to how Ross re-envisioned the major characters of the DC universe and created three dimensional icons that owe a debt of gratitude to artists like Rockwell and Wyeth. Now I know how Ross uses photographs to set up other worldly lighting effects that make his characters look more realistic. Like Kirby, he has an innate belief in the iconic power of superheroes that gives them a dimension far beyond the usual four-colored adventures. The end result includes lush and vibrant colors with a scrupulous attention to detail that re-imagine the great super-heroes as they might actually appear if they existed today. His sense of realism is totally cool. I'm no artist, just a fan. so this book took me "behind the scenes" to experience Alex Ross at work in his studio. There is a video review in one of the other reviews where you can see the whole layout of the book. This is my second copy of this book, if I could give it a rating a six stars I would.

5つ星のうち 5.0 The DC mythology as never seen before 2005/7/14
投稿者 R.Suarez - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
This book will astonish you even before you open it. The jacket has the images of two of the most iconic superheroes of DC, Superman and Batman, and below the jacket you'll find an unbelievable piece of art showing almost every DC superhero battling versus their respective villains.

With an introduction from M Night Shyamalan, the book presents Alex from his early beginnings as a child trying to create comic book characters and how his mother kind of influenced him (even though he affirms this didn't happen, take a look at her mom's works and try to believe him)

He then presents the DC characters one by one (the Batman session has some pages dedicated to the Joker only, no other villains are shown), the early drawings, original artwork from classics and the homage he has paid for covers, posters or special editions. Analysis on the symbols and the myths of each character are used to describe what Ross wants to project with his images. I don't think it necessary to mention which character has the larger amount of pages dedicated to himself only. You get to see in drawings the creative process he follows when creating a piece, the ideas scratched on a piece of paper, the drawings and possible posing and then the final image. There are pictures I has never seen until I got this book, when I first saw them my fisrt thought was ` I need to frame these', which came up as a bad idea as I would have had to frame the entire book.

The abandoned ideas for `Portraits of villainy' are presented here in the form of pencil sketches that look pretty well, it is hard to imagine how they would have looked if the project had been completed. His takes on Hanna-Barbera, Mad magazine, Alan Moore, the animated style and World's finest are also present.

Then there are pages and pages dedicated to 'Kingdom Come', from the early concepts and ideas, passing through sketches until the realization of the project. The possible prequel that never occurred, `The Kingdom' is also mentioned and the preliminary sketches by Ross are shown.

Uncle Sam is also analyzed near the end of the book in the same way the other projects previously were.

Then we have this section called `The process', in which we obviously get to see how Alex works using the book's cover as example. The final part of the book is a very nice bonus, a Batman/Superman special story written by Chip Kidd and Alex Ross created exclusively for this book.

Indeed a great piece of collection, this book is a must for comic book fans. The hard cover presentation, the paper in which it is printed and the bonus stuff are worth the price to pay.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Incredible Color Palette, Rich Collection of Pictures, Best Art Work Guide EVER 2006/5/15
投稿者 A. A. Ozok - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
To call this book a chronology would be a mistake because the art work of the Genius Alex Ross is not presented in chronological order, but rather starts with the most popular characters Superman, Batman, etc., and then moves on to other work such as Justice League of America, Kingdom Come, Alan Moore, etc.

Alex Ross is arguably the greatest visual artist of our time. As far as I am concerned his work is up there with Picasso, Da Vinci and Degas. This book takes the reader in a character-and event-based journey of Alex Ross's incredible work. What Ross and this book have in common are the incredible attention to detail and color. The art presented in this book is so rich in color it is almost unreal. The pictures carry unbelievable detail, down to the pores on the faces of the Superman and Batman sculptures. I have never seen such a visual fest in any other comic or movie-related book, I guarantee you you will not be disappointed, it doesn't even matter whether you are a comic book fan or not. Ross's modern day interpretation in the recreation of the art work from 40s, 50s and 60s comic book covers is so nostalgic and professional it makes you appreciate his talent even more.

This is one book not to miss. The print quality is extremely high, and pictures carry a ridiculous amount of detail and color. Especially if you are a Superman or Batman fan, you are on for a treat as they are most prominently featured in this book.

This is one great book, I have always been a huge Alex Ross fan, but thanks to this book I now feel like I know him personally (through his art presented in this book as well as the narration in the text that accompanies the pictures).

One last note: Get the hardcover if you can, the art work on the sleeve is much better than the paperback cover, and the art work on the front and back of the hard cover book is simply incredible.

5つ星のうち 5.0 Life cycle of the images! 2008/7/22
投稿者 Spiderbaby Fastwolf - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
From story board to stunning completed product, an overview of Mr.Ross' DC comics work, focusing particularly on the big three; Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman, with loving attention to the rest of the JLA as well.

Lots of beautiful 'work in progress to completion' pictures and even a few that never got to see the go light of editors.
Inspirational for the new painter or seasoned storybook artist - makes quite the case for gouache!

Please note! this is NOT an 'origins' book or even a story, this is meant to specifically address the artwork itself and the processes by which it is done.

By the by, many a comic book irritates me no end with its sexist imagery -this book is a rare exception in supehero comics.
None of the women are bimboes and the men are, dare I say, as beautiful as the ladies.

For my part, the explanations of the new Kingdom Come versions of the classic DC cast were the finest aspect of this book.
If you're at all a fan of Alex Ross' incredible way with a brush, you must own this, if only for the most drool worthy versions of beloved heroes.

If you love the classic DC pantheon, you need this book, 'nuff said!
5つ星のうち 5.0 Why we believe that Superman can fly... 2011/2/25
投稿者 beatlesexpert - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
Way back in 2001 i got Mythology by Alex Ross on Hardcover. Last year, a friend of mine asked me about the book and if it was any good. My only response was: "I believe that a man can fly because of that book". Ross's portrait of the Heroes we grew up with is nothing short of amazing. This guy is doing what he was meant to do in this lifetime.
What i really liked about the softcover version was the extra material that's in it. All the "Justice" drawings and a couple of more things show why Ross is still the man who puts life into comic book characters. I have to admit that at first i didn't like his drawings...they were "too photographic"...but after reading Kingdom Come, Uncle Sam and Marvels i was hooked.
Enough with the praise.
Buy it, read it, breathe in the labor of love from this guy and his fascination with the DC characters.

This book is well worth the money.
Good job Alex. Good job.
