Conceived by Alex Ross, written by Jim Krueger with art by John Paul Leon, Bill Reinhold and Ross, the deluxe Earth-X Book Package, is a multi-media event. Each package contains the hardcover book, sculpted translucent, outer-skin box and two compact disc containing a wealth of digital audio/visual material. Containing over 500 pages, the Smyth-sewn hardcover book collects for the first time ever all 14 chapters (#0, 1-12 and X) and Earth-X #½. Printed at the request of artist John Paul Leon in black and white, this oversized 8¼ x 12 5/8 format book also includes a 16 page color section that contains all of the covers (including variants) and more. A new 5 page Epilogue featuring painted art by Alex Ross over pencils by John Paul Leon, sketches (both new and all previously seen), 4 panel cover gatefold and lots of new art, makes this package impossible to properly describe in the space allowed. Two compact discs contain 25 musical compositions assembled by Scott Vladimir Licina, 16 dialogue tracks and the first ever, fully-realized Earth-X video containing both live action and computer animation. These two discs are worth the price of admission all by themself! Includes a unique illustrated sequentially-numbered signature page signed by Ross, Krueger, Leon and Reinhold. HC, 544pg, black and white (w/2 CDs).
