Best Art Ever (This Week) – Superman 75th Anniversary Edition

untitled-1-1371231931

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 75th anniversary of the first appearance of Superman and this weekend's release of Man of Steel, we present for the second time a compilation of some of the coolest portraits of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster's brilliant creation that we've highlighted in this feature over the last few years. 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.

Lucy Knisley’s ‘Relish’ Is A Satisfying Comics Meal

relish-

The front cover of Relish: My Life in the Kitchen, the new memoir by Lucy Knisley of French Milk fame, bears a pretty killer blurb from Alison Bechdel, whose years of Dykes to Watch Out For and her breakout hit Fun Home have made her something akin to the grand dame of memoir comics: "Step aside, Joy of Cooking."

Bechdel's blurb may be more braggadocio than brass tacks. Irma S. Rombauer's iconic, seminal cookbook isn't going anywhere,

‘Where They Draw’ Takes You Inside Cartoonists’ Workspaces

lucy-knisley

I've never thought the eyes were the window to the soul so much as the desk is. After all, the way a person treats their workspace says a lot about them. Do they work in a cheerful, brightly lit space filled with plants and knick-knacks? Or have they carved out chaotic office spaces amid collapsing towers of paper? The Tumblr blog Where They Draw offers glimpses insi
