Alex is one of the most revered comic book artists of our time with hundreds of thousands of devoted fans, and his unique images have become highly sought after as stand-alone works of art. Universally acknowledged as one of the greatest artists in the field of comic books, he has revolutionised the industry and transcended the newsstand origins of his profession.
Just as Andy Warhol elevated soup can labels into multi-million dollar artworks, Alex has elevated the art of the comic book. His partnership with brands such as Marvel has taken him into the illustration stratosphere. Marvel started life as a group of imprints mainly known as Timely Comics. In 1961, they launched The Fantastic Four and other superhero titles created by the great Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko and many others, and the Marvel name, which had been used over the years, was solidified as the company's primary, now iconic, brand.
