Up up and away...As a recovering ‘Fanboy’ every now and then I relapse and take a good ‘ol hit of the less addictive but just as satisfying ‘graphic novel’.  Comic artists have always fascinated me as many are as good if not better than traditional artists and painters.  A case in point is Alex Ross who renders superheros in such a way that they look even more heroic and even more at odds with society.

I really like his Superman who has a more commanding presence than we’ve seen in the past and moves mainstream comic art to a level that would stand comparison to anything you’re likely to find in a gallery.  Understandably his work is very collectible and has price tags to match…I’d best start saving.
