Best Art Ever (This Week): Hellboy 20th Anniversary Edition

Untitled-1

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 20th anniversary of the first appearance of Hellboy, the enduringly popular and endlessly entertaining ex-paranormal investigator created by Mike Mignola. One of comics' most idiosyncratic characters with a supporting cast to match, Hellboy is cited by many artists rivaling Batman as the most fun character to draw and reimagine in different styles. Throughout the existence of Best Art we've featured loads and loads of visions of Hellboy and his friends in the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, and what follows is a compilation of some of our favorites.

‘All-New Ghost Rider’ #1 Starts Off Slow But Hits The Finish Line Hot And Other Racing Puns [Review]

All-New Ghost Rider #1, Marvel Comics

I love Ghost Rider. Or at least, I love Ghost Rider in theory. Everything about the character, the very idea of a flaming skeleton in a cursed leather jacket riding around on a motorcycle made of hellfire, bringing vengeance to increasingly bizarre and demonic villains, all while pulling off stunts that you could only do on the comics page? That is exactly my jam. In practice, however, Ghost Rider has always been a really hit-or-miss character for me. As good as it can be, and there are issues of Ghost Rider that are among my absolute favorite comics, it's often bogged down by being overcomplicated and, worst of all when you're dealing with a book about demonic motorcycle stunts, boring.

That being the case, you can probably understand why I approached Felipe Smith and Trad Moore's all-new Ghost Rider comic, appropriately called All-New Ghost Rider, with a little bit of caution. On paper, it's exactly what I want out of comics, but in practice, there are a dozen things that could go wrong. Fortunately, the first issue is off to a strong start.

Ghost Rider Trades His Motorcycle In For A Car In Upcoming Series

Ghost Rider Car

At this year's New York Comic Con, Marvel rolled out plans for several new titles to launch in 2014, and one of the more intriguing projects was a new Ghost Rider series from Felipe Smith and Tradd Moore. Smith and Marvel shared that a new character would take on the Spirit of Vengeance -- and that the series' first antagonist would be Mr. Hyde -- but otherwise not much information was given.

This week, a bit more was revealed about the latest Ghost Rider, including his brand new ride: Ghost Rider is ditching his motorcycle for a Dodge Charger. And to assuage any immediate fears: yes, the wheels are still on fire.

Tradd Moore’s Got it Going on From Pencils to Colors [Art]

traddmooremain

Not all comic book artists can claim to produce pencil work that is as interesting to pick apart (or more so) as their finished, colored pieces. Tradd Moore falls into that category, though. That's no knock against the colored art in The Strange Talent of Luther Strode at Image Comics, but if you've seen the Fin Fang Foom he drew recently, you know his penciled images are equally glorious to gush over.Moore's
