About the author (1999)

Busiek is known for his talent for bringing humanity and realist to the larger than life heroes of the Marvel Universe. His credits include AVENGERS: ULTRON IMPERATIVE and AVENGERS: SUPREME JUSTICE, as well as the award-winning MARVELS and ASTRO CITY.

Alex Ross first came to prominence as the illustrator of Marvels 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), 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.
