Best Art Ever (This Week) – 08.16.13

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.

‘Kick-Ass 2′ Director And Star Discuss Cutting The Comic’s Rape And Dog Killing Scenes From Film [Video]

kickass2

One tidbit from The New Republic's profile of writer Mark Millar in which he said he didn't really "think it matters" whether a bad guy rapes someone in a comic is some elaboration on why the infamous gang-rape scene from he and John Romita Jr.'s Kick-Ass 2 was cut from the film. Also cut, apparently, a scene in which a dog is killed.

According to the film's director, Jeff Wadlow, moviegoers don't need those scenes like comic readers do, because he's working with real people rather than drawings. See his full quote, along with comments from star Christopher Mintz-Plasse, after the jump.

For the past decade or so, it's almost been a necessity for Captain America to serve as a kind of barometer of the national mood. He fought terrorists in the Middle East, searched for weapons of mass destruction, dealt with angry protest groups, quelled election anxieties, and even surrendered and died when a political rift between heroes grew too wide. It's

Among the many Marvel Comics characters who are part of the publisher's Marvel NOW relaunch initiative is of course Captain America, who's now quite the star thanks to actor Chris Evans' excellent performance in Joe Johnston's live-action film and some scene-stealing moments in Joss Whedon's hugely popular Avengers. Created by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon in 1941, the superhero has been redefined over most of the last decade by writ
