Each week we gather up the coolest comic book art we can find that will never appear in actual comics. The reason they won't is because artists often do sketches for fun or commissions and post them on their sites, blogs, Tumblrs and Twitter pages. You can sometimes even arrange for commissions through those pages so be sure to check them out.

Philip Tan hasn't been updating his Tumblr but has been posting a bunch of sketches on his Facebook page. Check these out.

I came across this image of Superman on Adam Pollina's Facebook page. What has he been doing lately? He's using this as his "cover photo."

While Brett Booth is busy drawing pictures for Scott Lobdell, he's also posting the occasional sketch on his blog. Here's a couple he posted this week of Redbird (Damian) and Wonder Woman.

Lots of Damian this week. Dustin Nguyen posted a sketch of him as well on his Tumblr, along with one of Stephanie Brown.

What about Joker? Michael Walsh posted a sketch of him on his Tumblr.

2538109-tumblr_m8wuxifrig1r1kvkyo1_500.jpeg

Mahmud Asrar also posted a pic of Joker on Instagram, along with one of Supergirl. (Did you read SUPERGIRL #12 this week?)

And here's a non-colored version:

Just as there was lots of Damian this week, the same is with Joker. Here's another Robert Atkins posted on his blog, along with a Venom and Lady Jaye.

2538140-ds_256_venom.jpeg

Paolo Rivera posted a nice Mary Jane commission on his blog. And even though this Daredevil image is from the cover to issue #20, it's always great to get a glimpse at the original art.

2538143-1_nycc2011_mj.jpeg
2538144-dd2011019cov_ink_dtl.jpeg

Joel Gomez also did a Daredevil piece and posted it on his Tumblr.

Time for another Batman sketch. Here's one from Freddie Williams II posted on his Twit Pic page.

2538163-637953590.jpeg

Chris Giarrusso showed his version of Dracula on his website this week. He also posted a Tribute Tuesday, which is actually a Kickstarter-exclusive cover for Joe Martino's THE MIGHTY TITAN.

2538165-dracula1.jpeg
2538166-tributetuesdaymightytitan.jpeg

Last week we saw Denis Medri's 80s High School Star Wars redesigns. Here's one last one featuring Jabba, Emperor Palpatine and Grand Moff Tarkin. He also did a tribute piece for Elvis along with 70s vigilante style redesign of Punisher. I have a feeling we'll see more of those next week.

Our last piece is another tribute. As you know, Joe Kubert passed last Sunday. Here's a nice piece Francesco Francavilla posted on his blog.

Man, Jeremy Roberts' Justice League is awesome! I like what he did with Cyborg. The design is simple, and it probably wouldn't change from panel to panel like in the comic book!

The Justice League shot looks kinda off. Batman's chest is too big and his logo is too skinny. Wonder Woman doesn't wear a skirt anymore. Where's Aquaman? And what's up with the Cyborg redesign? Looks cool but kinda out of place. lol @ Flash looking like he's always gonna explode. lol

That Brett Booth Wonder Woman is dreadful. There's nothing right with the anatomy or her face (one of the ugliest depictions of Diana I've ever seen), which is a shame because the composition's nice. That and he's like a Budget Jim Lee. Mike McKone's Scarlet Witch on the other hand is gorgeous. And Marcio Takara's work is as beautiful and reliable as usual.

I think I've had my fill on Agnes Garbowska too, if you've seen a dozen of her cutsey pieces, you've seen all she can do, it's just generic and repetitive now - same faces, mostly the same two or three facial expressions, same poses with different hair and costumes. She's got no range as an artist.

Mahmud Asrar's Joker on the other hand is fantastic. So is the Kubert tribute, which there really should have been much more of this week!

Anne Hathaway Catwoman was really good, so was Inspector Gadget. Still, IG as a serious character, weird. Also, love the Damien/Batman image. That would make a fun series.

Also, Brett Boothe is amazing.
