Last week Meags Fitzgerald's new graphic memoir Photobooth: A Biography debuted and completely blew me away. Fitzgerald is an artist who works in a variety of mediums, including improv, comics, and photobooth photography.

It's a book about a woman who has come to passionately love something so much that it takes over too much of her life -- an idea that should resonate with many readers.

That's way better.
I'm getting a little off-track here, but what I'm trying to get at is that there's some magic to be found in adding Batman to everyday situations, which is exactly what french artist Rémi Noël has done with a series of photographs. The compelling series of photos find Batman everywhere from a laundromat to a can of beans, and they're pretty fantastic. Check a few of 'em out below!

The Marvellini Brothers are spinning an alternate history of the world with their vintage superhero portraits, imagining an earlier era of costumed crimefighters. See more turn of the century masked men and women below the cut.

As visitors of this past weekend's C2E2 return to their regularly-scheduled lifestyles and allow themselves to process the comics, toys and various plagues they may or may not have acquired over the 3-day convention, it's a fine time to reflect on what went down on the show floor
Even though costumed con goers may seem like the most camera-ready segment of comics culture, the creators of the funnybooks themselves seem to dig their own closeups now and again. It's a good thing too, because walking through C2E2's Artist Alley and assorted publisher booths might
