Best Art Ever (This Week): New Spider-Woman, The Shadow, Joan Jett, Stephen Colbert, Bitch Planet And More

Untitled-1

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, as well as the special qualities of comic book storytelling, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great pinups, fan art and other illustrations 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, awnd some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it is awesome.

Here’s The Thing Episode 11: Hawkman Sucks Real Bad [Video]

HTT11

If our weekly Ask Chris column isn't enough of definitive comic book (and pro wrestling) opinions for you, good news: ComicsAlliance is proud to present Here's The Thing, a series of videos where you can join our own extremely opinionated senior writer, Chris Sims, as he sits in his living room under a framed portrait of Destro, drinking a cup of coffee and sharing his opinion on comic books.

On this week's show, a viewer asks Chris to explain Hawkman and ends up sparking a journey through one of the most complicated histories in comics, trying to answer one simple question: Why isn't a dude who fights dinosaurs with a mace while not wearing a shirt the coolest guy ever?

Kyle Baker’s Upcoming Manga Inspired ‘Circuit Breaker’ Comic Looks Like It’s Going To Be Great

Circuit Breaker

 

A little while back Kyle Baker revealed on his website details of Circuit Breaker, his upcoming Image comic. Illustrated by Baker and written by Kevin McCarthy, the comic stars a young girl robot in a future Tokyo and is inspired largely by the work of Osamu Tezuka. Baker revealed some early art when the title was first announced, but he's posted a new page, both at the ink stage and in color, and I'm excited about this comic all over again. No word yet on when it will arrive in stores, but you can check out the latest art below, as well as some early pages you may have missed, below.

Kyle Baker Drew Justin Bieber’s Mugshot, So At Least Something Cool Came Out Of This Nonsense

Justin Bieber by Kyle Baker

Look, before you say anything, I'm tired of hearing about Justin Bieber too. We are all tired of hearing about Justin Bieber. And were I not literally paid to be on the internet, I would mostly be avoiding it like the plague until people found more interesting things to talk about.

But at least one good thing has come out of this: Bieber's mugshot, taken after his arrest in Miami for driving under the influence, has been drawn by none other than the great Kyle Baker, the multiple Eisner-Award winning creator behind such works as Why I Hate Saturn, The Cowboy Wally Show and Plastic Man, and the (self-proclaimed) Greatest Cartoonist Of All Time. So, at least Bieber has that going for him.

Five Great Comic Book Adaptations Of Movies (And One That’s Just Really Cool But Kind of Terrible)

Untitled-2

Back before the VHS tape made it possible to watch the movies you wanted when you wanted (as long as Blockbuster had a copy in stock), movie novelizations and comic book adaptations of films were some of the only options fans had when it came to reliving a movie they wanted on-demand. While the majority of these were rightly viewed as cash-ins that let comics companies float on someone else's success, there were the occasional pieces of work that proved to be something more. For example, Marvel's off-model, six-part Star Wars adaptation proved to be so popular in the summer of 1977 that many credit it for helping the company pull out of a fiscal free-fall, even as it acted as a bog-standard 1970s Marvel book in a lot of ways.

Now that we can watch Magic Mike on our phones any time we want, comic adaptations can seem like a quaint throwback. However, some of them are legitimate pieces of comic history in their own right, providing an alternate look at our favorite films even as they gave a few comic creators the chance to play with the medium in a new way. In this piece, we take a look at five of them, including long lost work by Jack Kirby, Jim Steranko, Walt Simonson, Kyle Baker and Bill Sienkiewicz and more.

Kyle Baker Launches New Online Comic Strip ‘Meh’

Untitled-1

If you twisted my arm and made me choose just one, I might tell you that Kyle Baker is my favorite cartoonist. Since his first professional work was published nearly 30 years ago, Baker has been one of the greatest talents in comics. The Cowboy Wally Show and Why I Hate Saturn remain two of my favorite books, with the latter being a book I frequently loan to people who think they couldn't ever enjoy a comic. I like Kyle Baker, is what I'm saying.

So whenever Baker does anything new, I take note. And now the multiple Eisner and Harvey Award-winning creator has launched a new comic strip, simply titled Meh.There are only two installments so far, but if you're a fan of Baker's, it's about as great as you would expect.
