Best Art Ever (This Week): Highlander, Terry Gilliam’s Brazil, Julie Newmar, Slick Rick, Watchmen & More


We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great images on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, and some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it’s awesome.

Closing the Loop and Filling the Hole: The End of Grant Morrison’s Batman [Spoilers]



This week, Batman Incorporated #13, by Grant Morrison, Chris Burnham and Nathan Fairbairn, wraps up Morrison's seven-year tenure on the character. It brings everything to a definitive close that leads to both the character's new era in the New 52 and to the core of the Batman myth itself. It closes not just one loop, but a number of loops, between the present and various points in the past -- the beginning of this volume, the beginning of Morrison's run and, indeed, to the very beginning of the character, way back in Detective Comics #27 in 1939. It's a heartfully written, beautifully drawn true creative collaboration between three of the best talents in comics, and can probably be best described as a frustrated and slightly resigned labor of love. I've been following this run since it started, and there's a solid argument to be made that this particular run, this particular story, has been the bedrock of my entire comics journalism career. So let's look back on the past seven years of headshots, time travel, evil gods, lapdancing pigs, father-son bonding, heartbreak, good art, bad art and, above all, mystery. Let's look, for the first time, as a whole, at Grant Morrison's run on Batman, and talk about the Hole in Things.

Chris Burnham Talks ‘Batman Incorporated’ And Batman Japan: ‘There’s Only One Thing They Asked Me To Re-Draw’


Chris Burnham has drawn some strange things over the past few years. As the regular artist on Batman Incorporated, he's taken on Batcow and the evil forces of Leviathan, and those aren't even close to being the weird ones. With his last issue on the title on the horizon, he stopped to talk with us at San Diego Comic-Con International about his time drawing the book, his love of Go Nagai and Shotaro Ishinomori, and the one thing he was asked to re-draw.

Spoilers for recent issues of Batman Inc. (and other DC titles) follow!
