Awesome Art Picks: She-Hulk, Supergirl, Emma Frost and More

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

Each and every week we gather up the best comic book art that you will not see in comics. The reason you won't is because artists often do sketches for fun and commissions and post them on their websites, blogs and Tumblrs. Many artists often arrange commissions through their sites so check them out for more detail if you're looking to own a cool original piece.

Chris Samnee has been busy posting on his blog despite the news of working on a story for the ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN digital series.

Saw the caption for Bat-cow, excitedly scrolled down to see image, there was none to be seen... then it dawned on me...

Mahamads work pisses me off. His rendition of supergirl looks all good here but in the comic, his art looks lazy. Also I was looking forward to seeing dustin nguyens work here. His pictures on little gotham is brilliant and I have continually been impresed by his batman beyond covers aswell. He is really becoming a top talent IMO:-)

Totally wonderful this week. So many wonderful pieces. I think the piece featuring Supergirl playing tennis barefoot is the cutest and smexiest art, wonderful coloring, really love it.

That looks 10 X more epic than any of the stuff in the Green Lantern live action film.

Those last two Supergirl outfits, the white with the infinity, & the mostly red skirt are awesome & need to be made into prominent alternate versions ASAP.

Give one to New52 Power girl maybe?

Agreed. The red skirt outfit needs to be used somewhere with Supergirl or even Powergirl...not liking her full-body suit.

Its funny how the infinity suit is very similar to the DCnU Power Girl costume, but just a little bit of color would improve it lots.
