Last week, one of the questions that came in for my Ask Chris column came from someone who was curious about how Batman celebrated New Year's Eve, and really, that's a pretty interesting question. I mean, we have plenty of comics, cartoons and even one goofy-ass movie about how he spends Christmas, but stories that address whether or not he watches the ball drop and toasts a cup of kindness are significantly harder to come by. Fortunately, we have Batman #247, a classic from the Bronze Age that addresses exactly this question.

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.

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.

If you've been browsing through your local Target lately, you've probably seen the line of T-shirts they're selling that are based on the covers of classic Marvel and DC comics. They're actually pretty awesome, with a great selection of art on display, but when our pal Bully of Comics Oughta Be Fun picked up the
