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.

One of my favorite cartoonists of the last couple of years, Mike Maihack once said he was done writing and drawing what are manifestly the cutest Supergirl and Batgirl team-up comic strips of all time, citing some kind of strange desire to work on "his own projects" that have, like, "true personal significance" and provide him with a sense of "creative and professional accomplishment" or whatever. And while, yeah, it's true that his comic Cleopatra in Space and contributions to Archaia
