In Exclusives by Kerry Dixon1 Comment

Renowned artist Alex Ross always brings his A-game to San Diego Comic-Con — as well as his exclusives to Alex Ross Art, the official art dealer of Alex Ross.

Let’s take a look at this year’s offerings:

[UPDATE June 21] Legendary artist Alex Ross always comes to San Diego Comic-Con with some amazing exclusives, but Superman fans should be especially excited for today’s announcement.

We have your first look at a new piece from Alex Ross, called “Kal-El: The Last Son of Krypton. The illustration (a 16″x”20″ fine art giclée on paper) depicts a minimalist, expressive rendering of the Man of Steel. Hailing from the planet Krypton, Kal-El is orphaned after his planet is destroyed. With the destruction of all who inhabited his planet, Kal-El becomes the Last Son of Krypton.

It’s the second piece in this minimalist style, following Ross’ earlier “Wonder Woman: Goddess of Truth.”

Each print is elegantly presented with hand-deckled edges, and comes signed by Ross. Each piece is also hand-numbered, and includes a Certificate of Authenticity. “Kal-El: The Last Son of Krypton” will be making its premiere at San Diego Comic-Con this year, through Alex Ross Art – the official art dealer of Alex Ross.

It’s limited to just 50 pieces, and will retail for $395. You can pick it up at the Alex Ross Art booth at San Diego Comic-Con. For those who can’t make it to the con, Alex Ross Art will offer a limited number available online starting on preview night, Wednesday, July 18. Fans interested in purchasing the piece are highly encouraged to join the waitlist on the Alex Ross Art website.
