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.
Of all the all the superhero comics restaffed and relaunched as part of the Marvel NOW initiative, I think Captain America is the one that most lives up to the bold promise of an all-new, all-different direction. Written by Rick Remender and illustrated by John Romita, Jr., Klaus Janson and Dean
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
How do you follow up what might be the most critically-acclaimed Captain America run ever? If you're Rick Remender and John Romita Jr., you go entirely in a different direction and offer up a science-fiction series full of big ideas and even bigger action, apparently.Talking to iFanboy about the new Captain A
What's that you say? The four teasers for Marvel's relaunched Marvel NOW! titles so far this week haven't been enough for you? How about four more to round out the weekend? This time around, Marvel's creators are all thinking Legacy, Soldier, Extended and Family.MTV Geek had the "Legacy" teaser, with Simon Spurrier - best known, perhaps, for his 2000AD and Judge Dredd Megazine work in the UK - and Tan Eng Huat appar

This week, Marvel kicked off a big ol' fight between the Avengers and the X-Men in the appropriately named Avengers vs. X-Men. But while the current event promises to be their most important conflict ever, it's hardly the first time those two teams have met up with each other. They've been teaming up,
Rocktober? Shocktober? Mohawktober? Here at ComicsAlliance, we just can't decide what we want to celebrate this month, so we're bringing you a different monthly theme every day! Today, we're honoring the achievements of Matt Murdock, who rose up from childhood poverty to become one of New York's most accomplished trial lawyers. We understand he is a
It's been said that in all of history you'd only need to ever hold one time traveler's convention. Simply name a date and a place and theoretically every intrepid chrononaut should eventually find out when to show up and then fuss with whatever buttons, dials, toggles and/or noise making light-filled tubes are required to make sure they show up at that precise moment of being properly late enough to be cool.
