Marvel Comics is home to the most popular comic book characters of all time, including Spider-Man The Fantastic Four, Captain America, Thor, The Hulk, and Iron Man.
For over 70 years Marvel has created a dynamic universe in which their many super heroes and super villains co-exist, intersect and do battle for good and evil. Marvel - unlike any comic book world before or since - became a world where super heroes were tortured outcasts, had financial and romantic problems, suffered from all-too human insecurities and yet rose above these conflicts to perform deeds of great nobility.
In addition to the legacy of fantastic storytelling, Marvel has attracted the very best illustrators working in the comic fields. The dynamic and inspirational art found in the Marvel Universe is reflected in this exclusive Marvel ArtWorks series of fine art reproductions.
This artwork is a limited edition giclee print on canvas.
With the advent of giclee, (pronounced gee-clay) the art of fine printing has become even more precise. Because no screens are used, the prints have the highest apparent resolution than lithographs. The dynamic color range is like serigraphy. In the giclee process, a fine stream of ink- more than four million droplets per second- is sprayed onto a specially treated canvas. The effect is similar to an airbrush technique but much finer. Each piece is carefully hand-mounted onto a drum which rotates during printing. Exact calculations of hue, value and density direct the ink of 6 to 7 nozzles. This produces a combination of 512 chromatic changes, (with over 3 million color possibilities) of saturated, nontoxic waterbased ink. The artist's color approval and input are essential for creating the final custom setting for the edition. These are very costly to produce hence the limited number of any giclee ever put into production.
Ultimate Fantastic Four is a superhero comic book series published by Marvel Comics. The series is a modernized re-imagining of Marvel's long-running Fantastic Four comic book franchise as part of its Ultimate Marvel imprint. The Ultimate Fantastic Four team exists alongside other revamped Marvel characters in Ultimate Marvel titles including Ultimate Spider-Man, Ultimate X-Men, and The Ultimates.
While the characters may bear resemblance to their normal Marvel Universe counterparts, they differ in many aspects. The origin of their powers is different and the team is much younger. The series revolves around the adventures of Reed Richards, Ben Grimm, and siblings Susan and Johnny Storm, who get engulfed in a malfunctioned teleporter experiment and get super powers: Reed can stretch, Susan projects force fields and makes herself invisible, Johnny becomes a human torch and Ben is a super strong stone giant. The series takes place in contemporary New York.
