Best Art Ever (This Week): Sandman, Sailor Moon, Wonder Woman, Evangelion, Frozen, Twin Peaks & More

Untitled-1

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations 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.

Our quote of the week comes from the Jessamine County Public Library board meeting, where members of the Kentucky community gathered to discuss the firing of several library employees who withheld award-winning Alan Moore's "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" from patrons, and whether or not the award-winning graphic novel was "porn":

"Darryl Diddle, a Wilmore minister, presented a petition signed by 950 asking that three more of the library's works be removed. And DeWayne Brewer, Broo
