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.

ditkosmonsters-gorgo-pr-main

Most fans know Steve Ditko as the artist who co-created Spider-Man with Stan Lee, but his career in comics and the wider world of illustration not only could fill dozens of tomes, but, well, totally does fill several tomes! The latest look inside the prolific artist's portfolio comes via IDW's new Steve Ditko's Monsters, Vol. 1: Gorgo collection by Ditko and writer Joe Gill. Curated, edited and designed by Craig Yoe, the 224-page hardcover showcase

Mania and Dream Logic: Looking Back at Steve Ditko’s Cackling ‘Creeper’

13635900x1350-1360654058

The Creeper isn't the greatest Steve Ditko creation, and it's not even the most Ditko-esque. (Maybe those are the same things.) But one thing the Creeper comics have going for them is that they follow their own unse

Steve Ditko Writes About His Role In Spider-Man’s Creation

ditkospiderman

Famously reclusive and unwilling to do interviews, Spider-Man co-creator Steve Ditko has nonetheless long shared his side of the story concerning the creation of Marvel's friendly-neighborhood wall-crawler in a series of essays appeared in small-press comics and zines. His latest, "The Silent Self-Deceivers," has just been released, asking what exactly Sta

‘Masters of Comic Book Art’ Documentary Reemerges from the VHS Ether [Video]

untitled-2-1330485123

Presented by an uncharacteristically reverent Harlan Ellison, Masters of Comic Book Art is a documentary film that offers insightful on-camera remarks from some of the medium's most gifted artists: Neal Adams, Steve Ditko, Will Eisner, Jean Giraud aka Moebius, Jack Kirby, Harvey Kurtzman, Frank Miller and Bernie Wrightson, all of whom muse on their most famous works and the medium that they love. Released on video in 1987, the film is something I'd always heard about but had never seen until it reappeared on YouTube earlier this week. It's especially interesting to listen to the creators
