Among the colorful cosplay, massive booths, interactive displays and walls of merchandise at Comic-Con International in San Diego — colloquially known as SDCC — remains the most important component of the show: comic book creators. ComicsAlliance photographer and Loikiamania podcast host Pat Loika hit the show floor to catch the men and women who tell our favorite stories in sequential art and captured the enthusiasm that comes from fans getting to meet their favorite storytellers at one of the biggest conventions of the year.

Check back with ComicsAlliance throughout the weekend for more of Pat's great photos from San Diego.

Jeff Lemire, Matt Kindt And Paolo Rivera Join Forces For Prestige-Format Mini-Series ‘The Valiant’

thevaliant1main

Never let it be said that Valiant Comics doesn't try new things with its characters.

The publisher's latest experiment is something you don't see a lot of in comics any more: An "entirely self-contained" prestige-format miniseries titled The Valiant. It's certainly a project loaded with talent. It's co-written by Matt Kindt (Mind MGMT) and Jeff Lemire (Sweet Tooth), and features art by Paolo Rivera (Daredevil).

Best Art Ever (This Week): Hellboy 20th Anniversary Edition

Untitled-1

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 20th anniversary of the first appearance of Hellboy, the enduringly popular and endlessly entertaining ex-paranormal investigator created by Mike Mignola. One of comics' most idiosyncratic characters with a supporting cast to match, Hellboy is cited by many artists rivaling Batman as the most fun character to draw and reimagine in different styles. Throughout the existence of Best Art we've featured loads and loads of visions of Hellboy and his friends in the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, and what follows is a compilation of some of our favorites.

Travel Foreman Reveals Art For His And Jeff Lemire’s Rejected ‘Doom Patrol’ Pitch

Doom Patrol Travel Foreman

While the 50th anniversary of the X-Men has received significant attention, another 50th anniversary for a similar team has gone largely unnoticed. Created in 1963 by Arnold Drake, Bruno Premiani, Murray Boltinoff and Bob Haney (though Haney's role is disputed), the Doom Patrol were the oddball, outcast hero team for DC Comics, in some ways the equivalent of Marvel's X-Men -- though the Doom Patrol actually debuted first. And while Marvel's premiere mutants have become a pop culture phenomenon, and have about 37 different monthly series right now, the Doom Patrol have never quite experienced the same success. There have been memorable runs on the title, most notably by writers Grant Morrison and Rachel Pollack, but for the most part the team is largely left unused, and spent their 50th birthday without so much as their own monthly title.

But it wasn't for lack of effort from Travel Foreman and Jeff Lemire. The two creators, whose work on Animal Man ranks among the most praised collaborations of DC's New 52 initiative, pitched a Doom Patrol series shortly after Foreman's run on Animal Man concluded. Alas, it was rejected, but Foreman has revealed art from the pitch, a series he is very much still interested in doing but says isn't likely to happen.
