Eisner award-winner Alex Maleev has left his mark on the Marvel Universe with seminal runs on DAREDEVIL, SPIDER-WOMAN, andMOON KNIGHT. Maleev began working in comics in the early 1990’s and quickly rose to prominence on several high-profile projects at other companies before teaming with Brian Bendis on DAREDEVIL for an award-winning run, then later reuniting with Bendis to re-imagine SPIDER-WOMAN and MOON KNIGHT. The Marvel Art Of Alex Maleev collects Maleev’s sublime watercolor artwork on Marvel titles including DAREDEVIL, SPIDER-WOMAN, and MOON KNIGHT,and includes never-before-seen sketches, behind-the-scenes material, and an introduction by Bendis.
