A ST Albans gallery is showing Marvel’s debut fine art collection chosen by legendary comic book editor, Stan Lee.
Some of Marvel Comics’ most celebrated comic book covers have been launched as a limited edition collection of art entitled Superheroes by Gallery Rouge in Chequer Street.
Chosen, curated and signed by Stan Lee, the six-piece series of limited edition art brings to life classic comic book covers, including The Amazing Spider-Man, The Invincible Iron Man, X-Men, The Avengers, The Silver Surfer and The Incredible Hulk.
They have been created using specialised techniques and materials and include The Incredible Hulk Special #1, which TV presenter and well-known Marvel lover, Jonathan Ross, believes is the greatest comic book cover of all time.
Kuldip Chohan, manager at Gallery Rouge, said: “This collection showcases some of the most iconic comic book covers ever to have been created, featuring some of the most renowned characters ever to have been developed. The artwork itself is not only incredibly striking – the intense colours, the bold lines and the way in which the essence of each superhero is captured in just one frame – but each cover communicates a wonderful narrative.”
