Awesome Art Picks: Batman, Spider-Man, Black Widow and More

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

Each week we gather up the latest and coolest comic art you won't see in comics. The reason you won't see them in comics is because artists often do sketches for fun and commissions. It gives them the opportunity to play around with characters they might not normally get the chance to in the books they're working on. It also gives us the chanced to be wowed by what they can do.

Paolo Rivera must be a busy guy when he goes to conventions. He's constantly posting sketches that he did on his blog each week. Check out his Steve Ditko-inspired Spider-Man.
