Awesome Art Picks: Batwoman, Doctor Doom, Batman and More

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

Each week we run around the internet and search for the coolest comic book art we can find. Artists often draw sketches and commissions and post them on their blogs and Tumblrs. This allows them to experiment a little or simply have fun drawing characters they might not normally get the chance to in their regular assignments. The art is way too cool to go by unseen.

Let's start out with some art from Michael Walsh. He usually posts several pieces on this Tumblr each week. Check out his version of Gambit.

Phil Noto has been posting a lot of non-comic book art. This week he did post an interesting Wolverine-ish pic on his Tumblr. He wrote, "Logan, Laura and Charles -there’s a story in there somewhere…" Can someone make this happen?

Last but not least, Gene Gonzales keeps winning me over with his sketches. I'm a big fan of Death (from SANDMAN) and he posted this sketch on his blog entitled, "Death. London, 1968."

That's it for this week. Just a little tease for next week. I did do another Mystery Art Challenge at WonderCon. I should have the video up during the week and full scans of the sketches in next week's installment.
