Each week we search high and low for the coolest comic book art that won't appear in comic books. This week, since we're at San Diego Comic-Con, we're doing something a little different. DC Entertainment has a load of art featured in an art gallery. Darkness and Light features "Art Inspired by Heroes & Villains, Hope & Heroism."
You should be aware of DC's 'We Can Be Heroes' cause aiding those in the Horn of Africa. You can find more information at WeCanBeHeroes.org. Some of the art in the gallery will be auctioned off and others will go on as part of a tour. You can donate at the link above and there is also a shop where you can buy some cool stuff that also goes to the cause.
You may have seen this image already. This was done by Jim Lee. Seeing it in person doesn't compare to this image.
There were plenty more pieces of art. You can click each to see an even larger image. There were so many great pieces. Some are available on JunkFood t-shirts.== TEASER ==
There was even an artist that built several large scale figures out of LEGO. You'll see some more below.
You probably recognize Dustin Nguyen's art.
The final piece is a three-stage piece. It was actually penciled by Chris Daughtry, inked by Jim Lee and colored by Alex Sinclair. A print of this is on sale at the 'We Can Be Heroes' shop.
Next week we'll return to our normally scheduled art pieces and most likely will be seeing this convention's edition of the Mystery Art Challenge.
