Alex Ross Variants


Next in line for my variant artist feature is the extraordinary Alex Ross. Everyone is familiar with both Ross and the covers he has done. Ross crashed onto the scene with Marvels and continued that stellar mini with one of my personal favorite books of all time, Kingdom Come. He has never actually been a point man for variants per se, Ross has done tons of beautiful work for various companies but not a ton of incentive based covers. I didn’t include any of the Dynamic Forces (DF) covers or store variants. I chose to mostly stick with his DC and Marvel incentives and was kind of surprised to see that the bulk of Ross’ incentives started in 2013.

Ross has never been a speculator’s go to artist but he does have some covers that have small numbers due to the ratio. Sure, some of his books carry some value but he hasn’t had the same instant impact in the spec community like a JSC or AH. The work of Alex Ross will be appreciated by future generations and will surely appreciate over time.

As always, remember that these numbers below are on the high end and most are much lower in actual number.
