For the last 10 years, Russell Dauterman has turned heads with his stunning artwork on bestselling Marvel comics like The Mighty ThorX-Men, and Scarlet Witch. Russell’s costume designs for Storm, Jean Grey, Scarlet Witch, and the bestselling X-Men event Hellfire Gala were the talk of the comics industry.

“Since I saw X-Men: The Animated Series as a seven-year-old, I’ve loved the X-Men,” said Dauterman. “That show led me to a love of Marvel Comics and to a career as a comic book artist. I’m so grateful to work for Marvel and to draw the characters I’ve loved for nearly my whole life. I’m beyond thrilled to share that art in this book!”

The Marvel Art of Russell Dauterman campaign will feature exclusives such as a 1,000 piece Women of Marvel puzzle, Hellfire Gala and X-Men 24” x 36” posters, an X-Men trading cards set, collectible stickers, and the 216-page 9" x 12" high end coffee table book with 5 fantastic 11" x 17" prints: X-Men Legends, Jean Grey + Emma Frost, Scarlet Witch, The Mighty Thor, and The Marvel Art of Russell Dauterman brand new cover.

“Russell's art is stunning. His sense of design and composition, plus his modern sense of storytelling, makes him one of Marvel's top artists to follow, " said Hank Kanalz, Publisher of Clover Press. "And follow they do - it was great to see his X-MEN '97 #1 variant cover go viral on social media when he and Marvel revealed it, leading into the animated series debut. His love for these characters comes through with every page.”

"As far as I'm concerned, the unmatched combination of fantastical world-building and heart-wrenching human emotion that Russell Dauterman brought to the page in his work on Thor propelled him into being nothing less than a modern master of comic book art,” added Jason Aaron, writer of Thor and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
