Awesome Art Picks: Black Widow, Daredevil, the Thing, and More

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

Each week we search for the coolest comic book art that you won't see in actual comics. The reason you won't is because artists often draw sketches for fun or commissions and post them on their blogs, Tumblrs, and websites. Some artists even pre-arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out.

Last weekend was WonderCon so we apologize for the lack of an installment. We will have another edition to the Mystery Art Challenge coming up this week!

Todd Nauck was busy at WonderCon last weekend. He posted some of his commissions on his Tumblr. I also got a Star Wars commission from him, reproducing the cover to the novel Splinter of the Mind's Eye.
