From the sensational, award-winning artist of the bestselling Mythology: his never-before-seen DC Comics sketchbook.

Here is a behind-the-scenes look at the stunning black-and-white drawings of the DC characters you loved from Mythology: Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Black Canary, and many more. All of Alex Ross’s extraordinary, hyper-realistic paintings start as pencil on paper, and some of them never get beyond that stage. None of these hundreds of graphite sketches has ever been published before, and most of them will make their only published appearance in Rough Justice.

In 2008 Ross became the first cover artist in DC history to work simultaneously on the monthly Superman and Batman titles. All of the designs he created for an entire year–even those that did not make the final cut–are included here. And in an interview with Chip Kidd, Ross reveals his process and how these drawings translate into the finished paintings.

Rough Justice reveals the brilliance and brawn of Alex Ross’s draftsmanship: the foundation of his dazzling images.
