Alex Toth's contribution to comics is too big to cover with just the few images included with our anniversary tribute to him last week. The 25 images we've selected for this gallery don't provide a satisfying tribute either, but they're still a lot of fun to look at.

This week's rumors that Selma director Ava DuVernay had signed on to direct a Black Panther movie were a bit premature (though talks apparently continue), but the excitement that surrounded the news confirmed one thing: People really want to see Wakandan King T'Challa on the big screen, and they want to see him done right.
Here's some of the best art featuring T'Challa from the past five decades, from Kirby, Denys Cowan and John Buscema, to Francesco Francavilla, Olivier Coipel, and the best fan art around.
Created by Robert Kanigher and Sheldon Moldoff, Poison Ivy first graced the comic page back in the historic year of 1966, when The Sound of Music won Best Picture and England somehow won the World Cup. Her first appearance was in Detective Comics #181, and since then the character has remained a constant thorn in the Dark Knight's side.
Since her 1941 debut, Wonder Woman has been one of the cornerstones of DC Comics, and of superhero comics in general.
In her 74-year-history, scores of artists have put their spin on the character, from subtle changes to her classic red, white, blue and gold costume to the "new" Wonder Woman of the late 1960s to some far more maligned interpretations that featured jackets and long pants. We've compiled a gallery of some of the most iconic Wonder Woman artists of the past seven decades, along with some positively stunning modern designs.
The Game of Thrones season finale delivered another dagger between the ribs to fans of the HBO mega-hit series based on George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire novels. To mark the occasion, we've collected together what we think is some of the best Jon Snow fan art ever.
Pixar Animation Studios' fifteenth feature film, Inside Out, opens in theaters across North America this weekend, and it's already receiving rave reviews from critics --- with an aggregate score at this writing of 99% positive on Rotten Tomatoes.
It's with Inside Out’s release and the twentieth anniversary of Toy Story in mind that we take you through a visual celebration of Pixar’s history, including behind the scenes production art, promotional pieces, and fan creations.
Since the dawn of time, mailaway action figures have been a staple of the scene. That is, if you consider the dawn of time to be the day Kenner started releasing Star Wars figures. Though the trend has died down significantly in the era of the Internet, exclusives are still a very important part of toy collecting. As one of the final companies to offer mailaway incentives, the now defunct ToyFare magazine was one of the last bastions of trend.
Say what you will about the Wizard magazine empire, but for a long time, it's brand of geek culture coverage was all many of us had. ToyFare in particular was a great place for collectors to see what was coming, learn the history of industry, and to see how the sausage was made. What made the magazine even more special were the brand partnerships that allowed ToyFare to offer a variety of different collectibles based on Marvel, DC, animation and indie comic characters. Plus, you didn't have have cash and a dozen UPCs to send in to get your hands on something as rudimentary as a William "Refrigerator" Perry figure.
Last week Jurassic World opened, setting a global record with it’s $511 million dollar debut, which is the first time a film has ever pulled in more than $500 million in an opening weekend. But even before fans were flocking to theaters to see the 4th film in the franchise, they were busy creating art—mostly devoted to Chris Pratt and his gaggle of raptors.
On this day in 1927, Rossolav Andruskevitch was born in Cleveland, Ohio. He showed an aptitude for art from an early age, and after attending the High School Of Music & Art in New York City, serving a stint in the Army, enrolling at the Cartoonists And Illustrators School (now known as SVA), and shortening his professional name to Ross Andru, he launched himself into a career in comics that would span six decades, and establish him as one of the industry's finest craftsmen.
It’s never a happy occasion when the worlds of film and pop culture lose an icon as we did yesterday with the passing of Christopher Lee, but there’s also no better time to pay tribute to the man and one of his most famous roles, Dracula!
