Awesome Art Picks: Batman, Rocket Raccoon, Thor and More

The coolest comic book art you won't see in comics.

Each week we hunt down the coolest comic art that will most likely never appear in an actual comic book. The reason you won't see them in comics is because artists often draw sketches for fun or for commissions and post them on on their blogs, Tumblrs and Twitter accounts. Some artists even offer commissions via their sites. These drawings are too good not to be gathered up and seen by everyone.

Skottie Young's art is always a treat to see. He was recently at Heroes Con in Charlotte, NC. He posted several commissions on his website. Be sure to check it out for information if you plan on attending SDCC and want some original Skottie art!
