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.

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.

All of this, of course, means we are now one step closer to this film being made. I mean, Disney once made a movie based on a theme park ride, so really anything can happen.
To fans who may have felt frustrated and unfulfilled by creator George Perez's short six issue run on Superman at the start of DC Comics' New 52 relaunch, you're not alone. Perez himself felt the s
