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.
If there's anything we like more than the holiday season, it's undermining the holiday season, and nobody beats the reverence out of... well, anything, like Eric Powell's gloriously profane The Goon. As part of Dark Horse's ongoing
Eric Powell, creator of The Goon, is looking for your help to ensure the creation of a Goon movie, which he describes as "a NEW KIND of animated film... one that's LOUD, VIOLENT and OFFENSIVE TO YOUR G
Following up on a similarly sarcastic but inescapably funny variant cover from earlier this year, the latest Dark Horse press release in support of The Goon defies you not to check out the deeply irreverent, typically hilarious, frequently vulgar and always beautifully illustrated series by Eric Powell.
The series follows the adventures of the titular Goon and his diminutive but excessively ornery companion Frankie as they fight (and drink) their way thro
The comics medium attempts to answer a lot of big questions: Given great power, would you use it responsibly? What means are justified, when the ends are noble? If your life had a face, could I punch it? In that spirit, ComicsAlliance's Matt Wilson is asking comics creators, retailers and commentators some big questions of his own.
In this installment, Eric Powel
While the publisher's San Diego Comic-Con programming was focused on its various franchises like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dark Horse Presents, Star Wars and Bioware, Dark Horse made a number of new and returning horror comics series announcements throughout the SDCC weekend.

Rocktober? Shocktober? Mohawktober? Here at ComicsAlliance, we just can't decide what we want to celebrate this month, so we're bringing you a different monthly theme every day! Today, we're celebrating the second most brutal fictional death metal band of all time, Dethklok, seen above performing the pretty amazing act of poisoning readers with their own blood in the pages of Eric Powell and Brendon Small's Dethklok vs. The Goon!

Among the most beloved creator-owned franchises of Dark Horse Comics is of course The Goon. Written and illustrated by Eric Powell, the series follows the adventures of the titular Goon and his diminutive but excessively ornery companion Frankie as they fight (and drink) their way through every form of fantastical threat, from zombies to ghosts to monsters to robots to cannibals to super scientists and beyond. The Goon mixes over-the-top gore with twisted, laugh-out-l
