Awesome Art Picks: Iron Fist, Batman, Wonder Woman and More

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

Each week we gather up all the cool comic book art by the professionals that won't be appearing in comic books. The reason they won't is because artists often do sketches for fun or commissions at convention and post them on their websites, blogs, Tumblrs or Twitter pages. Some artists even offer commissions through their sites. These drawings are too good not to be seen by everyone.

Denis Medri has been doing quite a bit of re-imagining. We've seen his steampunk versions of characters and last week saw Western versions of the Justice League. This week he posted a couple more steampunk Spider-Man pics on his Deviant Art page but also did something a little different. Check out his "Star Wars 80s High School Re-Designs."
