Mark Waid, a New York Times best-selling author, has written a wider variety of well-known comics characters than any other American comics author, from Superman to the Justice League to Spider-Man to Archie and hundreds of others. His award-winning graphic novel with artist Alex Ross, Kingdom Come, is one of the best-selling comics collections of all time. View titles by Mark Waid
Alex Ross first came to prominence as the illustrator of Marvel’s before producing the award-winning Kingdom Come.  With a graphic novel for Vertigo (Uncle Sam), several projects for Marvel Comics, and six oversized graphic novels starring DC's iconic heroes (collected in The World's Greatest Heroes), the top-selling Justice series and more, he continues to bring comics to a broader audience. In 2003, Ross was the subject of a retrospective of his work for DC Comics, Mythology (Pantheon Books), written and designed by Chip Kidd. View titles by Alex Ross
"One of the best comic stories ever told."--Washington Examiner

"With art that looks like a hybrid of Norman Rockwell and Jack Kirby, artist Ross has become the preeminent painter of superheroes of his generation."--Publishers Weekly
