Awesome Art Picks: Black Widow, Thor, Superman and More

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

Each week we gather up the greatest fresh comic book art that won't actually appear in comics. The reason they won't is because artists often do sketches for fun or commissions and post them on their Tumblrs, blogs and websites. Many artists arrange commissions or sell original art through their sites so be sure to check them out.

This weekend was supposed to be Boston Comic-Con where some of this week's featured artists were going to attend. The con has been canceled and will be rescheduled. The important thing is everyone is safe.

This week we'll start off with Todd Nauck. He posted some recent commissions on his Tumblr and his Instagram page.

Khary Randolph posted this Superman pic he did back in 2004 in honor of his 75th birthday (Superman's, not Khary's). Colors were done by Kanila Tripp.

This next one isn't necessarily new and it might bring a little tear to your eye. Phil Bourassa posted this Young Justice poster he drew in 2011 on his Deviant Art Page. It was a giveaway at SDCC and was later turned into a large banner. Sigh.

Francesco Francavilla posted two Doctor Who sketches last weekend on his blog based on the latest episodes, "The Rings of Akhaten" [Ep.7.08] and "Cold War" [Ep.7.09]

That's it for this week. Don't forget, me and Mat will be at C2E2 next week. Keep an eye out for us! There might be another Mystery Art Challenge. We'll see if I can round up enough contestants.

Mahmud Asrar's Thor is very kicketh asseth and I love the pose and perspective on Power Girl.

Thor looks badass... so does the prankster and Barda! Btw totally random but in that Young Justice poster is it me or does Red Tornado seem like he shouldn't really be there posing or standing. I know he was a "big" part of season 1 but in the grand scheme of things he didn't really do much IMHO.
