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.
On sale this week from IDW Publishing and DC Comics is the second issue of Star Trek/The Legion of Super-Heroes. Written by Chris Roberson (iZombie, Superman, Cinderella) and illustrated by Legion alumnus Jeffrey Moy, the the six-issue miniseries finds the DC heroes of the 30th century and the intrepid Enterprise crew of Gene Roddenberry's original television series trapped in the grim "mirror universe" version of the 23rd century, where there is only war. Kind of.
