The winner of the 2013 ComicsAlliance prize for Raddest Superhero Art, Filipe Andrade draws some of the coolest pictures we've seen in recent years. His drawing style is an uncanny blend of wild, kinetic line work and fine, intricate detail, which made his stint on Captain Marvel one of Marvel Comics' best looking productions last year. We'd been wondering where Andrade would pop up next and got our answers when Marvel released its solicitations for books going on sale in June. The artist's next big gig is Figment, written by Jim Zub (Skullkickers, Samurai Jack) and inspired by the Journey Into Imagination attraction at the EPCOT theme park at Disneyworld, starring a steampunky inventor called Dreamfinder and his dragon Figment.
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.
One of ComicsAlliance's picks for the Best Comics of 2012, Captain Marvel began the new year with a striking visual overhaul courtesy of Filipe Andrade and Jordie Bellaire, whose work can be described in any number of ways, but "Marvel house style" is not one of them. These artists' increasingly attractive collaboration has made the already distinctive solo-woman superhero series stand out even further
