Seen fleetingly throughout the recent Star Trek movies, the Starfleet Academy will take the spotlight this October for a miniseries at IDW from Mike Johnson, Ryan Parrot, and Derek Charm. Set partly during Spock, Uhura and Kirk's time in the academy, the series is set to focus not just on the well-known characters, but introduce a new group of cadets as well.
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.
