The comics of Ed Savage seem to start out mundane and innocent, but somehow, unexpectedly, always end in a bloodbath of fantastical pain and gore. I'm not sure what this all means but I kind of like it. Perfectly fitting for an artist with the last name of Savage- well done Ed. Be sure to check out the rest of his illustration portfolio as well- full of treasures.

Moebius contributed storyboards and concept designs to numerous science fiction and fantasy films, including Alien, Willow, Tron(1982), and The Fifth Element.

We unearthed some retro covers from 'Gay Comix', a series present from 1980–1998. Created by Howard Cruse, 'Gay Comix' featured the work of gay, lesbian, and transsexual artists. Much of the early content was autobiographical, but more diverse themes were explored in later editions.

Look, we often show photorealism on this site, we know that, we enjoy the skill involved. That said, we passed over Doug Bloodworth's this morning, and thought it was just a well-executed photo of a Spider-Man comic with Oreo cookies strewn on top. No, this is an oil painting, and its really, really well-done.

Anne Emond is a writer, illustrator, and drawer of comics living in Brooklyn. 'I graduated in 2010 with an MFA in illustration from the School of Visual Arts. I like drawing potted plants, stacks of books, skeletons, little old ladies, and people looking generally pensive and melancholy, except when I'm drawing comics and then it's people (usually me!) looking ridiculous. My artistic heroes include Saul Steinberg, George Grosz, Edward Gorey, Maurice Sendak, and Lynda Barry.'

Pleasantly vibrating plasticine hues, wrinkling, sweating flesh, flying chicken drumsticks, dismembered body parts, and reoccurring patterns are some of the contests within Kyle Platts illustrations that make up his world of disgusting, enthralling, hyper-detailed comic-style drawings.
