Each week we gather up the coolest comic art on the internet that will never appear in actual comic books. The reason is, artists often do sketches for fun or for commissions and post them on their websites, Tumblrs, Twitter pages and blogs. They're too good to go unnoticed. Many of these artists even offer commissions through their websites so be sure to check them out.
New York Comic-Con is almost upon us and Marcio Takara is working on pre-con sketches. Here's a few he posted on his Tumblr this week.== TEASER ==
Michael Walsh will also be at NYCC. He posted a pre-con sketch and a 'Sketch Request Monday' on his Tumblr.
