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 Halloween, we’ve compiled the darkest and spookiest selections from Best Art Evers past.


We’re very much interested to see what you’ve dug up and think should be featured here in Best Art Ever (This Week). Please submit any great art links to andy-at-comicsalliance.com. Artists, feel free to send in your own work or to request that your work be removed.

Where possible, please visit these artists’ websites to see more of their work, buy their products or commission an original piece.

For more great spooky images, check out last year's Halloween edition of Best Art Ever.
