Most of you will not be aware of the astounding comic book artist Alex Ross who's mission is to make the amazing and fantastic appear realistic. I got a book of his art for DC comics for Christmas and was delighted to find out that his favourite band is Queen. In the book 'Mythology' I got a shock when confronted with the Queen II album sleeve. The text reads: "The iconic album cover for Queen II (Elektra Records, 1974, photographed by Mick Rock) has been an inspiration to Ross since he first saw it as a child. "My favorite band, and my favorite album cover ever. I stole the lighting technique and the figure placement to make what is probably the most popular group shot of the Justice League [Super Hero Group]) I've done yet." With Roger and Brian's fascination all-things space and fantasy perhaps Alex should be brought in to provide some art-work for the box-set? For the uninitiated, go and have a look at some of his stuff here: www.alexrossart.com/archives.html
The guy is fucking amazing and would surely jump at the chance to help out with a major Queen project.....?!
He's my best friend he's my champion
