In the final few hours before San Diego Comic-Con opened its doors to the public for Preview Night on Wednesday, Image Comics Expo took place in an upstairs ballroom at the nearby San Diego Bayfront Hilton, where the publisher welcomed a group of press, creators, and fans to watch as the company announced, discussed and otherwise promote a great variety of upcoming Image titles.
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.
Anchor-tattooed forearms are flailing behind fists of fury on the cover of Popeye #2. Out this Wednesday from IDW, the second issue of Roger Langridge and Ken Wheaton's new Popeye series will pit the spinach-guzzling sailor man against famous actor Willy Wormwood. Sadly, Popeye's mighty mitts are of little use in a contest for Olive Oyl's heart, meaning the cantankerous sailor must rely on his wits if he's to come ou
I've never thought the eyes were the window to the soul so much as the desk is. After all, the way a person treats their workspace says a lot about them. Do they work in a cheerful, brightly lit space filled with plants and knick-knacks? Or have they carved out chaotic office spaces amid collapsing towers of paper? The Tumblr blog Where They Draw offers glimpses insi

Tom Neely loves Popeye. To read his take on the Tom Neely Wants To Draw Popeye Facebook page, he's downright obsessed, "I started this page because Craig Yoe posted on his Facebook wall that he is editing new Popeye comics and is looking for an artist. I wanna do it! I already drew my own surr
As reported last week, comics owned by cartoonist Tom Neely and Sparkplug publisher Dylan Williams were confiscated by authorities at the Canadian border as potentially obscene material while they traveled together to the Toronto Comics Art Festival (TCAF). We spoke with Neely and CBLDF Executive Director Charles Brownstein and combed through Canadian customs documentation to get the details on how this happe
Agents of the Canadian Border Services confiscated last weekend a number of independently produced comic books en route to the Toronto Comic Arts Festival. Copies of the graphic novella Young Lions by Blaise Larmee and an anthology called Black Eye 1: Graphic Transmissions to Cause Ocular Hypertension were seized from artist Tom Neely and small press publisher Dylan Williams at the border in Buffalo, New York, and if Canada's Prohibited Importations Unit deems the material obscene, the comics will be destroyed.Published by Rotland Press as part of a crowd-sourced Kickstarer fundraising project, Black Eye is an
Further proof that neither rock nor love ever truly fade away, Los Angeles curators La Luz de Jesus Gallery hosted Igloo Tornado members Tom Neely, Gin Stevens, Scot Nobles and Levon Jihanian this past Friday in conjunction with an art exhibit and book signing for Henry & Glenn Forever, the satirical comic that centers around an imaginary romantic relationship between Henry Rollins (Black Flag) and Glenn Danzig (Misfits).
The exhibit featured pieces from the original creative team, as well as other notable artists like Coop, Johnny Ryan, and more. Check out s
