Best Art Ever (This Week): Mad Max, New Thor, Guardians of the Galaxy, Orphan Black, Seconds and More

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.

Heartbreak And Secrets With The Cast & Creators Of 'Regular Show' At Comic-Con 2014 [Video]

The last year of Cartoon Network’s Regular Show has brought some pretty huge changes to the lives of everyone’s favorite park groundskeepers who just happen to be a raccoon and a bluejay.

One assumes that hijinks will ensue, but to find out more, ComicsAlliance’s Juliet Kahn spoke to Cloonan, Fletcher and Batman group editor Mark Doyle at San Diego Comic-Con.
