Alex Ross studied illustration at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, then honed his craft as a storyboard artist before entering the comics field. His mini-series Marvels (Marvel Comics, 1993) opened a wider acceptance for painted comics. He moved on to produce the equally successful comic epic Kingdom Come (DC 1996).

Receiving critical acclaim and multiple awards for these best-selling works, Ross made a name as both an artist and a storyteller, dedicating himself to bold experiments within the comic book medium. With his most recent mini-series Uncle Sam (Vertigo/DC 1997) and Superman Peace on Earth (DC 1998), Ross continues to bring comics to a broader audience. He lives in a suburb of Chicago.
