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.
Two heroes are down as Shredder advances his plot to take New York City in next week's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #23. Writers Tom Waltz and Kevin Eastman's "City Fall" storyline kicked off last month, giving fans a taste of what kind of shocking transformation may be in store for one of the Green machines, and this month artist Mateus Santolouco (along with alternate cover artists Dan Duncan, Andy Kuhn, Ben Bates, Ross Campbell and Dave Wachter) turns up the tension as a team short on allies prepares to confront multiple foes.
Created just for the new continuity of IDW's current ongoing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic book series, new villain Old Hob was one of the first (furry) faces fans were introduced to when the book's first issue arrived in 2011. Beginning life as a mutant by attempting to straight up eat an ooze-covered Raphael before having his eye gouged out by a still-normal-rat Splinter, the new villain's predatory instincts have since culminated in one of Casey Jones and Raph's worst beatings in the series thus far. This week in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Villain Microseries #3: Old Hob by writer Jason Ciaramella, artist Dave Wachter and colorist Tyler Walpole, however, fans will have a chance to see another side of Hob and learn what set the kitty down a life of brutality.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles co-creator Kevin Eastman has been collaborating with co-writer Tom Waltz and a number of artists over the course of IDW's new ongoing comic series, but he'll be taking full command of he and Peter Laird's Green Machines this Wednesday with a solo story all his own. In Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #21 the ninja brothers are confronted by a new foe who happens to hand them
It's way past December, but 'tis always the season to watch Leonardo grapple with Footclan ninjas across hyperkinetic panel layouts - and that's precisely what fans can look forward to this Wednesday with IDW's freshly colored re-release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Color Classics Micro-Series: Leonardo by original TMNT creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. Whether you're a fan seeking a

There are places that are nice to visit, but you wouldn't want to live there. There are also places that are... terrible to visit, terrible to live and completely miserable to be stranded in. For Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, Michelangelo, their newfound Neutrino allies and the Fugitoid, Dimension X is totally that kind of place in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #18 - especially as General Krang and his army of craggy goons fire a seemingly ceaseless burst of red lasers at them, Cobra style. IDW has provided us with
If the fourth live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie -- which would have potentially been subtitled either "The Next Mutation" or, apparently, "The Foot Walks Again" -- had gone ahead, the world could have met Evil April, Super Shredder and a fifth Turtle named after Jack Kirby. Now, we get to see what those characters might have looked like, as Kevin Eastman's concept art for the project has shown up at auction
When IDW supplied us with an early look at Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #17 by Kevin Eastman, Tom Waltz and Ben Bates, I confess I gave brief pause. I was stoked to see the relaunched comics debut of the previously 1987 animated series-centric Neutrinos, but wasn't sure how the characters would be incorporated into a series that's a bit more rooted in classic comics continuity. Fortunately their appearance m
My undying affection for The Mighty Mutanimals is probably coloring my thinking here, but its fairly safe to say that when it comes to the snapping turtle known as Slash, the character has always been coolest in comics. Let's be real - in three appearances on the original TMNT animated series, Slash didn'
