Awesome Art Picks: Avengers, Thanos, Hawkeye & More

The coolest comic art you won't see in comic books.

Each week we search high and low across the internet to find the coolest comic book art you won't see in comics. The reason you won't see them in comics is because artists often post sketches and commissions on their blogs, Twitters and Tumblr accounts. They are way too great to go unnoticed and we want to be sure everyone gets a chance to check them out. You can also contact some of these artists through their sites and get your own commission.

The first amazing piece comes from Mitch Breitweiser, which he posted on his Tumblr. He will be be at the Dallas Comic Con this weekend and will be selling prints of this Captain America image. Bettie Breitweiser did the gorgeous colors.

If you're going to the Dallas Con this weekend, be sure to look for Mitch.

Ryan Stegman posted these recent commissions on his Tumblr. Can't wait to see what he'll be doing on FANTASTIC FOUR in August. Take a look at his Thanos, Thing and Hellboy.

This is just one reason why I like Peter Nguyen. He posted a sketch of Songbird on his Tumblr and mentioned how much he digs her classic look.
