The comic book, animation, illustration, pinup, mashup, fan art and design communities are generating amazing artwork of myriad styles and tastes, all of which ends up on the Internet and filtered into ComicsAlliance’s Best Art Ever (This Week). These images convey senses of mood and character — not to mention artistic skill — but comic books are specifically a medium of sequential narratives, and great sequential art has to be both beautiful (totally subjective!) and clear in its storytelling (not so subjective!). The words and the pictures need to work together to tell the story and create whatever tone, emotion and indeed world the story requires. The contributions of every person on a creative team, from the writer to the artist(s) to the letterers, are necessary to achieving a great page of sequential storytelling.
It is the special nature of comic books that we’re celebrating in this all-new recurring feature: Best Sequential Art Ever (This Week).
It's a big month for anniversaries. Doctor Who has turned 50. Mystery Science Theater3000 is 25. One anniversary that doesn't seem to be getting as much attention is the one that might make all of us feel the oldest. The Powerpuff Girls have officially been around for 15 years, debuting on Cartoon Network on November 18, 1998. If fans count creator Craig McCracken's original "Whoopass Girls" concept that he created while in college at CalArts and debuted in 1992 as "Whoopass Stew!," though, the team is old enough to drink.
If you thought Mojo Jojo relinquishing his capacity for supervillainy in IDW's Powerpuff Girls #2 was a shocker, next weeks' Powerpuff Girls #3 by Troy Little and colorist Jeremy Colwell will continue to blow your mind. It turns out that nearly every villain Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup ever protected Townsville from has also turned over a new leaf and insist on honoring the once sole guardians of the city. IDW's provided us with an early look at the confounding events of the issue before it arrives on November 27, but we're still stumped as to Little's maniacal endgame for the PPGs.
Considering Troy Little kicked off IDW's new ThePowerpuff Girls comic book series with Mojo Jojo tooling around in the Power Loader from Aliens, this week's ThePowerpuff Girls #2 is hardly a hard-sell around these parts. It appears that the mad monkey is pulling a 180, though, as this month he'll be confounding fankind with the choice to inhale the mysterious "Antidote X." That's right, Mojo Jojo says he just wants to be Jojo again.
When DC brought its long-running catch-all Cartoon Network comic to an end last spring, it seemed like the cable station's premiere properties were destined for comics limbo. With Adventure Time and Regular Show at Boom!, assorted Adult Swim shows li
Under the premise that "Hollywood is running out of A-List Superheroes," College Humor's created a series of comedy shorts profiling the likes of the Wonder Twins, The Powerpuff Girls, the Bionic Woman, Falcon, Dazzler and Whizzer for "open casting." Though fans will no doubt take issue with the inclusion of a f
What we love/hate most about infotainment television is its predilection for non-ironic irrelevancy, and what we love/hate/mostly love most about Christian Bale is his penchant for amusing disagreeability. The two love/ha
