Animated Comic Covers of Spidey, Demon in a Bottle, Dark Knight Returns

We've seen some pretty impressive Silver Age-themed art from ComicsAlliance favorite (and occasional contributor) Kerry Callen, but now he's decided to try his hand at something a little different: animated comic book covers! Watch the thunder crash on the front of Dark Knight Returns, see Tony Stark get the shakes in "Demon in a Bottle," and observe the Justice League spinning endlessly on the terrible Wheel of Misfortune!

Awesome Art: Wonder Woman by Jeff Chapman

Jeff Chapman does fantastic photorealistic art, and he has a real flair for comic book women. Check out his portrayal of classic, pre-'New 52' Wonder Woman, along with Queen Hippolyta, Artemis, and villains Red Panzer and Baroness Von Gunther.

Andre De Freitas Illustrates the Dead and the Beautiful [Art]

Andre De Freitas paints portraits that will stare holes straight through your head-and that goes doubly for the ones with flaky zombie flesh and holes in their own heads. De Freitas has zombified a couple of normally unassuming fellows with his Tintin, Waldo and Iron Man studies, and his living subjects are just as impressive.
