【Amazonランキング大賞 2016上半期】入賞発表!
洋書総合は『The Rider Tarot Deck』 が堂々の1位。 洋書総合ランキングへ




   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 HASH(0x7f21edf8) Mythology: The DC Comics Art of Alex Ross 2003/10/23
投稿者 S. M. Van Briesen - (Amazon.com)

I had forgotten I ordered this until it came in the mail today. It's a pretty amazing piece of work. If you are an artist (like me) it's almost a text book on how to do it correctly. I found the highlight to be the last few pages of the book where Mr. Ross explains exactly how he created the cover from initial concept sketches to photography through finished art. The book also contains several things I'd never seen before or had just seen poorly printed or web versions of. Just amazing. Well worth the asking price.

5つ星のうち HASH(0x7fa81bdc) The magic of superheroes, recaptured 2004/1/9
投稿者 Jay Dickson - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー
Alex Ross brought a new technique and style to superhero artwork that had never quite been seen before in comics. Working almost exclusively in watercolor gouache, he brought a photorealistic style that takes almost everyone's breath away. It marvelously recaptures the essential thrill of comic books: the fantasy of what it would be like if a man could really fly, or run at incredible speeds, or had a magic ring that could do anything. He's often been compared to Norman Rockwell (in his hyperrealism and love of dramatic facial expression), but Ross is his own artist. His intense love of dramatic composition, lighting, and figural motion suggests his roots also extend to the greats of comic artwork, including Dick Sprang, Steve Ditko, Gil Kane, and Neal Adams.
This wonderful collection captures many of his childhood attempts at art and documents not only his changing style but also his creative process (using live and inanimate models, photography, and high-contrast lighting). It also showcases a plethora of his best work for DC, and even includes many rare and uncollected images done for fan publications and even a collector's plates series (!). The fancy-shmancy book design by designer and comics fan Chip Kidd is sometimes a drawback (too many images are sometimes crammed into one doublepage spread, reducing the detail to the detriment of all the images), but the book is terrific nonetheless. It greatly benefits from commentary by Ross throughout explaining what he finds interesting and exciting about each classic Golden and Silver Age comics character.

5つ星のうち HASH(0x7ed36b4c) Incredible Book 2003/11/1

If you are as big a fan as me of Alex Ross, then rush out a find a copy of this book. No matter what. It gives everything you need to know about his art and the stories behind them. It shows the evolutions of his characters and his backgrounds into how they came to be. If you are in love with comics and the characters then get this. It really shows his love for them as well. From full page spreads to single sketchbook black and white shots, its has it all. Chip Kidd did a wonderful job putting it together and the book is a great read as well. I've been waiting a long time for the definitive Alex Ross book and it's finally here. It's worth every penny.

5つ星のうち HASH(0x7f8301ec) Superheroes should feel honored to be drawn by him 2010/2/3
投稿者 Parka - (Amazon.com)
形式: ペーパーバック Amazonで購入
Alex Ross' comic art is stunning. There are comics where the characters are brought to life by the art and story, but you know they are still created from imagination. With Alex Ross, it's like he's drawing a character that really exists. His sense of realism is unparalleled. He blurs the line between fantasy and reality.

He's compared often with Norman Rockwell and it's apt. He, too, uses photographic references to amazing results. However, Alex Ross is in a class of his own too

This book is packed with breathtaking paintings, many are full page. There are also sketches and accompanying commentary talking from anything about his childhood, comic characters and influences like Andrew Loomis and various comic artists. There are lots to read. There's a section which details his drawing process, from getting a reference, to inking and then colouring.

Although there are no chapters, the content is grouped by the superheroes he drew, namely Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Shazam, The Justice Society, The Justice League, Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, Green Lantern, Plastic Man, Green Arrow, Hawkman, The Atom, The Flash, Supergirl, Batgirl and a whole lot more. These superheroes must have felt honored to be drawn by Alex Ross.

This book is really value for money with 320 pages of top quality art. Highly recommended to all artists and comic fans.

5つ星のうち HASH(0x7eebbb58) Visually fantastic! 2003/11/8

If you have to buy just one published book or comic having to do with Alex Ross, "Mythology" is it. The book is, for the most part, a visual retrospective on Alex Ross' works on DC characters. This edition is thin on text, but heavy on well reproduced yet great artwork. I, being an illustrator myself, really appreciate all the rough drawings and sketches included in the book, because they really show you the methode to Ross' madness.
I also recommend this book for those interested in learning illustration techniques and watercolor. Interestingly enough, you learn a great deal by observing how Ross tries to capture light and color through his work. There is even a page mentioning Andrew Loomis, the great late illustrator and one of Ross' influences. One can definitly see how the artist has drawn inspiration from the golden age illustrators and those of the 40's and 50's. His depiction of Superman is by far my favorit.
