Best Art Ever (This Week) – Preacher, Lost, Tetsujin, Game of Thrones & More

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.

The Con Haul: Three Great Comics From New York Comic-Con’s Artists Alley [NYCC 2013]

Conhaul01

For all the flaws it might have, New York Comic-Con has one very, very important thing going for it: A gigantic, well-organized Artists Alley that takes up an entire convention hall all by itself, full of amazing creators showing off their newest comics. There's enough there that you can spend the entire con checking out great stuff and never have a chance to set foot on the floor, and come away perfectly happy.

I haven't read everything I picked up yet, but there were three things that looked so good that I couldn't even wait to get home to dive right in. They're the ones to watch out for, fresh from the Javits Center!

‘The Unexpected’ Collects Crucial Pieces Of Vertigo’s Quiet Revitalization

Vertigo Unexpected

If you've been following the story of Vertigo -- the DC Comics mature readers imprint that's home to The Sandman, Preacher, Scalped and much, much more -- you know that there was a time in the recent past when it seemed the once legendary label had lost its prestige, especially when founder Karen Berger left the company. Thankfully that downward trend has been steadily reversed with the progress of JH Williams III and Neil Gaiman's new Sandman project, critically acclaimed new titles like FPB: Federal Physics Bureau, The Wake and Trillium, and promising books to come like Hinterkind.  All these projects speak to the variously dark and wild-eyed visions that defined the Vertigo line at the height of its influence, but what you may not recall is that this creative refocusing began in earnest where so many great comics do: within the pages of relatively innocuous anthologies.

On sale this week, The Unexpected is a paperback collection of The Unexpected #1 and Ghosts #1, two Vertigo anthology one-shots released in 2011 and 2012, respectively, that signaled the imprint's aesthetic resurrection. The book compiles done-in-one horror shorts from the imaginations of some of comics' most enduring talents as well as promising newcomers, including one of the final works of master cartoonist Joe Kubert and a rare mature readers outing from DC's top superhero writer Geoff Johns.

‘Batwoman’ Artists Amy Reeder and J.H. Williams III Comment on Creative Changes

untitled-2-1331574896

We were disappointed to learn last week that Amy Reeder would no longer be drawing Batwoman. Since the title's inception, Reeder was to alternate story arcs with artist and co-writer J.H. Williams III, who'd set an incredibly high aesthetic bar for the popular Kate Kane character, but Reeder stated that "creative differences" had made the situation "untenable...
