Marvel Comics is celebrating 60 awe-inspiring years of the Avengers and the X-Men! New comic titles, collections, and much more are in store for fans all year long, and starting in August, Alex Ross will grace the celebration with his acclaimed artwork!
For this milestone of two of the comic book industry’s most groundbreaking superhero teams, the incomparable artist has turned out two stunning pieces that will connect variant covers on various Avengers and X-Men titles throughout 2023.

In a press release from Marvel, Ross said about this current undertaking:
“In the case of the Avengers, I wanted to capture something of the era I grew up with, but also something extensive. To I captured the first 30 years of that team, from the ‘60s through the ‘80s. I end where 1989 closes. I’m trying to make sure my work is aligning with how the character looked and also the attitudes the characters had.”
From A-Listers to fan favorites, Ross’ AVENGERS 60TH ANNIVERSARY CONNECTING COVER spotlights all the iconic characters that have starred in the title’s 60-year history of adventures. Check it out now
