Alex Ross shares a behind the scenes look at October variant murals

Get a glimpse into Alex Ross’ artistic process.

Last week, when Marvel Comics revealed all of Alex Ross’ “Marvel’s Timeless” covers the comics world gasped in awe. The 28 stunning variant covers are a sight to see. They’re so great in fact Marvel Comics has released a nearly 6-minute long video walking through the works from Alex Ross himself. One tidbit I couldn’t believe was that Ross has been working for the entire year on these paintings!

You can watch the video below.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Another fantastic fact is that these covers were actually a montaged mural of all the characters that will eventually make it into a mural to be featured in Marvel’s NYC offices. Ross said these characters represent the “pure id” of the human avatar to its “most fundamental component.”
