One of the most anticipated releases of 2013 is Battling Boy, Paul Pope's first original graphic novel since 2007's Batman: Year 100. Seemingly brimming with adventure, excitement and Pope's singularly fantastic imagery, the book takes place in a world where monsters hunt children and where the greatest hero of all, Haggard West, is dead, leaving 12-year-old Battling Boy to save Acropolis. Check out a video trailer and eight-page preview.

Jones, Chrissie Zullo, Mark Buckingham, Jim Rugg, David Petersen, and many more. Locust Moon has released a few early pages from the project, which you can check out after the cut.

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.
