Best Art Ever (This Week): Fatale, Lana Del Rey, Iron Giant, Lobo, Audrey Hepburn and More

Untitled-1

 

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations 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, awnd some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it is awesome.

As of Wednesday, there's nothing to go on but a teaser image, but it appears that Boom! Studios will be publishing a comic based in John Carpenter's 1986 movie Big Trouble in Little China sometime in the near future.

The image, which depicts Kurt Russell's character Jack Burton from the very recognizable chin down, is drawn by The Goon creator Eric Powell. It's accompanies by a Jack Burton line from the movie: "Everybody relax! I'm here." Check out the full image after the jump.

Best Art Ever (This Week) – Superman 75th Anniversary Edition

untitled-1-1371231931

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. In honor of this year's 75th anniversary of the first appearance of Superman and this weekend's release of Man of Steel, we present for the second time a compilation of some of the coolest portraits of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster's brilliant creation that we've highlighted in this feature over the last few years. We know it's cheating but we didn't count on going away for a month and then coming back in the middle of a big media event. All-new next week evermore.

Why You Shouldn’t Be Reading Eric Powell’s ‘The Goon’

untitled-1-1346356793

Following up on a similarly sarcastic but inescapably funny variant cover from earlier this year, the latest Dark Horse press release in support of The Goon defies you not to check out the deeply irreverent, typically hilarious, frequently vulgar and always beautifully illustrated series by Eric Powell.

The series follows the adventures of the titular Goon and his diminutive but excessively ornery companion Frankie as they fight (and drink) their way thro
