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.
With the Lego: Marvel Superheroes video game set to hit shelves in the fall, Marvel Comics has found a fun way to promote the debut. This coming September, the publisher will release Lego themed variant covers for nearly two dozen of its titles. This announcement comes the same day the new trailer for Lego: Marvel Superheroes debuted at E3. You can check out the new trailer and some of Lego variants after the cut.
Look, as much as we all love Clint Barton and Kate Bishop, I think I can state with some degree of confidence that we're all reading Hawkeye just as much to follow the ongoing adventures of his canine cohort and confidant known as Pizza Dog.

We didn't realize when we set out to list our favorite comic books of 2012 that it had been such a fun year to be a fan of the medium that we all love so much. The last twelve months offered readers a wide variety of work ranging from the most crowd-pleasing superhero epics to the most idiosyncratic of indies; the return of much missed mangaka and the emergence of exciting new talent; a new crowd-sponsored visibility for self-publishing; and the ascension of the fan artist from bedroom dreamer to Tumblr tycoon. It was a busy a
Based on the reaction here and elsewhere, I think it's safe to say that Matt Fraction and David Aja's Hawkeye #1 is the best received Marvel Comics premiere issue since last year's Daredevil launch by Mark Waid and Paolo Rivera and Marcos Martin. The new take on the Avengers' resident archer finds Clint Barton balancing stylishly illustrated superheroics with humorously written Just-a-Dude problems, a
I've never really been a big fan of Hawkeye. It's probably because I never really got into the Avengers -- a team that I usually describe as "Marvel's most popular characters and Hawkeye" -- but while I can talk for days about Thor, Captain America and Iron Man, something about the team's resident archer never clicked. So f
Fans who read the original run of Valiant Comics' Harbinger would almost certainly identify Faith Herbert, a.k.a. Zephyr, as the beating heart of the book's team of super-powered teen protagonists. A fun-loving fan of all things nerdy, Zephyr wa

As Marvel Comics announced at the C2E2 convention yesterday in Chicago, the former Immortal Iron Fist creative team of writer Matt Fraction and artist David Aja are reuniting this August in an all-new ongoing Hawkeye comic. ComicsAlliance t
Today at the C2E2 expo in Chicago, Marvel elaborated on a number of major announcements they've been teasing of late. Perhaps the biggest news is the introduction of a new ongoing Hawkeye series by part of the acclaimed Immortal Iron Fist team of Matt Fraction and David Aja; meanwhile, Khoi Pham will be replacing Ryan Stegman on Scarlet Spider, with Stegman moving to help Jonathan Hickman wrap up his Fantastic Four run.
