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.

Last week's "Wonder Woman" #600 got the majority of its attention from drastically changing the direction of the book with a new gods-altered timeline, to say nothing of the debut of Jim Lee's controversial costume redesign. As iFanboy pointed out, however, those prominent shakeups were hardly the only worth notici
Power Girl cuts one of the most distinctive full-body silhouettes in comics, and few artists have cut her as distinctively as Amanda Conner during her run with co-writers Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray that ends today in DC's "Power Girl #12." Judd Winick and Sam Basri will no doubt make their own statement wh
