Alex Ross pays tribute to the 1999 animated feature The Iron Giant in this dramatic illustration, based upon the 1968 story "Iron Man" by the British poet laureate, Ted Hughes. The film tells the Cold War fable of a giant alien robot that drops from the sky and frightens a small town in Maine. Discovered by a local 9-year-old boy, Hogarth Hughes, the robot and the boy quickly cement an unlikely friendship. A paranoid government agent, Kent Mansley, is determined to destroy the robot, while Hogarth enlists the junkyard beatnik artist, Dean McCoppin, to help him protect the misunderstood machine.
Each piece of "Iron Giant: No Atomo, I Superman!" is hand-numbered, and signed by Alex Ross. The image was reproduced as a fine art offset lithograph on premium archival paper and was created as a signed lithograph for Sideshow Collectibles in an addition of 100.
25 AP's were produced, numbered AP1 - AP25.
