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.
It's been a big week for Little Nemo. Following the announcement that IDW would be publishing new stories of Winsor McCay's classic creation, Locust Moon Comics, a retailer/publisher, has revealed plans for a Little Nemo anthology. Titled Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream, the title will feature contributions from an extremely impressive list of creators, including Bill Sienkiewicz, Becky Cloonan, Neal Adams, Paul Pope, Brandon Graham, Roger Langridge, Peter Bagge, Farel Dalrymple, J.G. Jones, Chrissie Zullo, Mark Buckingham, Jim Rugg, David Petersen, and many more. Locust Moon has released a few early pages from the project, which you can check out after the cut.
Whether he's creating his own comics and illustrations from scratch or contributing to anthologies or magazines, Farel Dalrymple is just plain prolific. He's always releasing something and it's always worth checking out. This is both a blessing and a -- well, certainly not a curse -- but maybe a slight inconvenience when it comes to tracking down everything the artist releases. Come September, AdHouse will come to the aid of completists with Delusional, a 232-page, 6x9" hardcover collecting a number of comics and illustrations many fans of the Pop Gun War, Prophet, Omega the Unknown, Vice Magazine and Study Group artist may not have had the chance to check out just yet. Not one to keep fans in suspense, AdHouse has released a generous 23-page preview, which serves as a solid cross section of the upcoming hardcover's contents. You can take in all the Dalrymple goodness, after the cut.
We didn't realize when we set out to list our favorite comic books of 2012 that it had been such a fun year to be a fan of the medium that we all love so much. The last twelve months offered readers a wide variety of work ranging from the most crowd-pleasing superhero epics to the most idiosyncratic of indies; the return of much missed mangaka and the emergence of exciting new talent; a new crowd-sponsored visibility for self-publishing; and the ascension of the fan artist from bedroom dreamer to Tumblr tycoon. It was a busy a
You know that feeling of utter disorientation upon waking up to an unfamiliar room? It doesn't matter if you're on vacation or recovering from a party on a friend's couch, there's at least a mild trace of panic -- however fleeting -- in finding yourself in foreign surroundings

This week saw the release of Jonathan Hickman and Steve Epting's Fantastic Four #600, celebrating not only six hundred issues of the seminal title but also more than fifty years since the book's debut. Hickman's run on Fantastic Four has been a definite highlight of the past few years of superhero comics, embracing the cosmic sco
In typically cryptic fashion, Marvel Comics released Monday morning a couple of teaser images designed to make us talk about future publishing events -- and it worked! The first image reveals a new logo for Uncanny X-Men, the venerable mutant series that relaunches in November with a new issue #1 by writer Kieron Gillen and artist Carlos Pacheco. The teaser features a fully visible Emma Frost standing in front of blacked out figures, one of whom appears to
