Best Art Ever (This Week): Hellboy 20th Anniversary Edition

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.

In honor of this year’s 20th anniversary of the first appearance of Hellboy, the enduringly popular and endlessly entertaining ex-paranormal investigator created by Mike Mignola. One of comics' most idiosyncratic characters with a supporting cast to match, Hellboy is cited by many artists rivaling Batman as the most fun character to draw and reimagine in different styles. Throughout the existence of Best Art we've featured loads and loads of visions of Hellboy and his friends in the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, and what follows is a compilation of some of our favorites.

Frank Cho Revises ‘The Dark Knight Returns’ Scene To Make It Even More Anti-Superman

Frank Cho

If you didn't know, artist Frank Cho hates Superman.

He went about proving it with a post to his blog this week in which he shared a commission for his pal who goes by the name Hawaiian Dave. It's a remix of the climactic two-page spread from Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns in which Batman and Superman have their big, final fight in Crime Alley. Cho has added in a bit of commentary, and it is anything but Superman-friendly. Check it out after the jump.

Massive Artist Lineup For ‘All-New X-Men’ #25: Timm, Hipp, Young, Adams, Cho & More

Untitled-2

Getting all the way to issue #25 without a relaunch is a legitimate accomplishment for a Marvel Comics series in 2014, so the publisher and writer Brian Michael Bendis are doing it up big for next month's All-New X-Men #25, with a more than formidable list of contributing artists.

‘Battle Report of the Atom’: ComicsAlliance Examines Marvel’s Big X-Men Event

CA_BOTA

Marvel's X-Men comics recently celebrated their 50th anniversary with Battle of the Atom, a ten-part crossover between its four main X-Men titles that brought together mutant teams from the past, present and possible future -- and combined the talents of writers Brian Michael Bendis, Jason Aaron and Brian Wood and artists Frank Cho, Stuart Immonen, Chris Bachalo and David Lopez.

The X-Men have had their share of epic tales over the past fifty years, including the Dark Phoenix Saga, Inferno, Age of Apocalypse and Avengers vs X-Men. So how did the Battle of the Atom stack up against the franchise's history, and where does it leave the characters as they head into the next fifty years? ComicsAlliance splits the atom. Spoilers follow.

‘X-Men: Battle of the Atom’ #1 Is The Most X-Men Of Comics [Advance Review]

BattleoftheAtom1

It'd be selling Brian Michael Bendis and Frank Cho's X-Men: Battle of the Atom #1 short to say they seem to have made a checklist of all the things a big X-Men event is supposed to do and then included them all, but... well, it really does seem that way.

There's a team from the past. There's a team from the future. There's melodrama. There are characters in mortal danger. There are Sentinels. There are tons of nods to past X-Men stories. The only thing that's missing is a full-on alternate reality. So far, anyway.
