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.

That DUI Coma Prank Is Probably Fake
By now you’ve seen what Buzzfeed is calling “the most elaborate prank-with-a-message of the year”: Tom Mabe’s “Epic Don’t Drink and Drive Prank.” It was blowing past 1 million views when I started writing this, and by dinner time your grandma will have seen it.
In the video, a gruff-looking guy wakes up, ostensibly after passing out drunk, and finds himself in an elaborate hospital set, where he’s told that he’s been in a coma for ten years because of his bad decisions. We all learn a valuable lesson. Share if you hate drunk driving. Like our page for more inspiring vids.
Since Krampusnacht is the perfect night to talk about the dark companions of St Nicholas, here is a comic by me and Evan Shaner all about one of his non-Krampus companions, the Klaubauf.
I’m glad Benito brought this up because I was just thinking about it. To this day this comic is the happiest I’ve ever been with my own colors. And that Klaubauf was really fun to draw.
