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, and some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it’s awesome.

Jason Aaron and Mike Deodato Jr. Tell A Cosmic Murder Mystery In ‘Original Sin’ Miniseries For Marvel

Original Sin Marvel

It's become customary in comics for the major publishers to announce their "summer blockbuster" miniseries each year, with big event stories from high profile artists and writers. Today, Marvel has revealed plans for its annual event series, and this time it's a murder mystery on a grand scale. Starting this spring, Jason Aaron and Mike Deodato Jr. are teaming up for Original Sin, an eight part story that starts off on the moon, where the dead body of The Watcher is discovered. Simply put, when a seemingly omnipotent being who knows everyone's secrets is suddenly found murdered outside of his home, and all his stuff is gone, it's a problem.

Avengers #24.NOW Variant Covers Pay Homage To Famous Covers From The X-Men’s Past [Art]

Avengers 24 Acuña

Following the conclusion of the publisher's Infinity event, next month Marvel will release Avengers #24.NOW, from creators Jonathan Hickman and Esad Ribic. Meant in part to be a jumping on point for readers, the issue will also serve as the introduction to the publisher's All-New Marvel NOW launch -- Avengers #24.NOW is concurrently being billed as Avengers #1 under this new initiative.

But as part of it's push to promote the new, Marvel is also celebrating its past. Several variant covers to Avengers #24.NOW are being produced, and some are homages to famous past covers, including some of the more memorable cover art from the 50 year history of the X-Men. To that end, Marvel has enlisted artists Mike Deodato, Daniel Acuña, Lee Garbett,  and more to create images in homage to the cover work of Jack Kirby and John Byrne, and you can check out some examples below.

In what should be very good news for comics retailers and dedicated readers of Jonathan Hickman, Marvel has confirmed that the writer's forthcoming Avengers series -- which doesn't even launch until next month -- already has ten issues in (or at least within arm's reach of) the proverbial can, thus reducing the chance of a shipping or production delay to a very low order of probability. This is an important thing for a book that's meant to ship
