An awesome show at Ricco/Maresca in NYC, one that we think Juxtapoz readers will love: "Post-war America saw the rise of the erotic pulp paperback novel covers. The objective of these covers was to lure in potential buyers with the promise of sex, suspense and drama. Simultaneously, a similar type of book and marketing strategy was being developed in Mexico."

Mike Alcanatara creates these incredible collages using actual comic books. Mike doesn't use any paint or markers in his work, preferring to use nothing but the pages of comics to construct his pieces.

I don't know about you, but it's the little things in life that make me happy. I like a good cup of coffee before 7:30am, a commute with minimal red lights, and comic strips in my morning paper. A few days ago, a friend of mine showed me this fantastic and brilliant Tumblr, "Garfield Minus Garfield," that has had me in hysterics over and over again. Man, that poor Jon Arbuckle... what a sad existence.

There is so much to show you about Andy Rementer, the cover artist of the brand new April 2014 Juxtapoz. We have loved his work for years, whether seeing it at Pick Me UP in London, or in various commercial avenues such as New York Magazine or the NY Times. His cartoon-insprired works, whether actually in cartoon-format or in fine art form, are colorful, unique characters that bring to mind some of the best in animation and comics. We are so happy to have him in the alumni of Juxtapoz cover artists.

The Beatles are ubiquitous. John Lennon may no longer be with us, but his voice still echoes on radios, CDs, record players, and computers across the globe. It's no wonder that the fab four have made a whole book worth of comic strip appearances, all of which are riddled with beautiful illustrations and imaginative adaptations of the pop music masters.

Moebius is one-of-a-kind, a master that influenced some many artists that we cover on our site, and when we see works of his, we always feel compelled to share. When the world lost French artists, cartoonist, comic art, writer and concept artist Moebius (aka Jean Giraud) last year, it allowed for us all to reflect just how fantastic his body of work really was and continues to be...

As we showed you earlier on the site today, Los Angeles-based Gary Baseman will be opening his first solo musuem survey this week at Skirball Cultural Center. In conjunction with the opening and our 10+ years of covering Gary's work in the magazine, we look back on a classic article we had in the Jan/Feb 2001issue, #30, where Cleatus Broadus (yep, things were silly in 2001) catches up the "Dumb Luck" of Baseman. Congrats Gary on the museum show....

The Garbage Pail Kids meets The Fly meets a puddle of vomit left to fester on the sidewalk for a few days in the twisted mind of French comic artist Craoman. Craoman dissects the human condition in a grotesque universe inhabited by the decaying, deformed and dejected. He works extensively with the Guedin brothers on the production of comic art, illustrations and video clips...

'Some say he's the 'Master of pens'. Some call him the 'Justin Bieber of drawing'. Some say he f**ks about for a living.' Personally, I love the work of Mr. Bingo in all of it's raw, unedited, dirty humored glory. So come around children, let me show you a little something. Grandmother got a new tattoo.

We have been excited for this book since we got word that Taschen and author/comic authority Paul Levitz were working on it (and thank you to ItsNiceThat for the reminder). Soon in bookstores, Taschen will release The Golden Age of DC Comics, tracing the company's first decades, from its "pulp origins up to the comic book burnings of the McCarthy ’50s in more than 400 pages with comics, art, comics, photographs, and more comics."
