So let’s start with a piece I did about 10 years ago, a couple of months after Mark Waid and Alex Ross’s Kingdom Come came out. A real big fan of Ross’s art, I loved the way he did the covers for the first three books of this classic series. The way he decided to pose all major characters in one shot, as if in a studio, added more depth to already incredible artwork. It’s as if they all decided to take time out from their busy “superhero” lives to pose for one iconic photo op. It just made the whole piece come alive.
