Great epics come along only once in a long while. Stories that push the normal boundaries and force the reader to think. Stories so powerful in message and so grand in scale that the guidelines by which such tales are usually judged are completely rearranged. Spawned from the brilliant creative mind of Alex Ross, Earth X is one such epic. Along with writer Jim Krueger and artist John Paul Leon, Ross breathes life into and gives amazing detail to every facet of the Earth X mythos - made evident by everything from his early conceptual pencil sketches to each of his fourteen beautifully painted covers. Earth X explores the depths and heights of the Marvel Universe, from the roots of its humble beginnings to the peak of its ultimate potential. Collects Earth X #0, 1-12.

Ross and Krueger's opus to an Earth that has really changed as Hydra spreads like a zombie-like curse, heroes are absorbed and/or beaten like nothing else in a normal comic book universe. You'll either need to be a Marvel expert with decades of savvy or be willing to back up at times to get the history behind some of the storylines. For an old fanboy like me, this is stark, dark and truly inspired apocalyptic stuff. The reimaged Captain America stands out for the most memorable tough change of all.
I'll admit that I have an original page of this art, btw, and the EARTH X busts that Ross did when this was running as a series.
