Best Sequential Art Ever (This Week): Jeff Smith, Shawn Cheung and Francesco Francavilla


The comic book, animation, illustration, pinup, mashup, fan art and design communities are generating amazing artwork of myriad styles and tastes, all of which ends up on the Internet and filtered into ComicsAlliance’s Best Art Ever (This Week). These images convey senses of mood and character — not to mention artistic skill — but comic books are specifically a medium of sequential narratives, and great sequential art has to be both beautiful (totally subjective!) and clear in its storytelling (not so subjective!). The words and the pictures need to work together to tell the story and create whatever tone, emotion and indeed world the story requires. The contributions of every person on a creative team, from the writer to the artist(s) to the letterers, are necessary to achieving a great page of sequential storytelling.

It is the special nature of comic books that we’re celebrating in this all-new recurring feature: Best Sequential Art Ever (This Week).

The first issue of David Hine and Shaky Kane's returning homage to the weird old days of pulp comics was appealingly different from last year's run; this one is subtitled "Tales from the Haunted Jazz Club," and is apparently a fake issue of a lost EC-style jazz-horror anthology...

I'm loo...
