Awesome Art Picks: Stephanie Brown, Wonder Woman, Cable and More

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

Every week we gather up the best and coolest comic book art that you won't ever see in actual comics. The reason you won't is because artists often do sketches and commissions and post them on their Tumblrs, blogs and websites. Some artists even arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out for more information.

This week we had Sean Murphy on the Super Massive Podcast. Here's a Wonder Woman/Batman commission posted on his Deviant Art page.
