Awesome Art Picks: Batman, X-Men, Nightwing and More

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

Each week we search for the coolest comic book art that won't ever appear in comics. The reason they won't is because artists often do sketches for fun or for commissions and post them on their websites, blogs and Tumblrs. Many artists even arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out for more information.

Marcus To posted a commission he did recently of Dick Grayson and Damian Wayne on his Tumblr.
