For 2000 AD, this year's Free Comic Book Day wasn't just going to be a platform to get their comics into the hands of new readers, it was going to mark the debut of legendary Batman artist Norm Breyfogle on their flagship character, Judge Dredd.

Hawthorne will be following the esteemed Tony Moore on the second arc of Brian Posehn and Gerry Dugg

Here at ComicsAlliance, we've been fans of the Comic Twart blog since day one, and this week, the best online art jam on the web celebrates its official one year anniversary!
As you can see by Evan "Doc" Shaner's anniversary piece above, the site has seen a gang of incredible artists teaming up to pick one character or theme to draw every week, from Zorro to the films of Alfred Hitchcock, with everything from Archie to Batman to Futurama in between.

Unlike the time Comic Twart told its contributors to each draw a piece of Sandman art, their Marvel Comics and "What If...?" themes demanded that artists stick within the confines of Spider-Man and Iron Man's universe. The flip side was that they could re-imagine established conce
