Awesome Art Picks: Iron Fist, Batman, Cassandra Cain, and More

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

Each week we present to you, 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 websites, blogs and Tumblrs. Some artists even pre-arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out for more information.

Speaking of commissions, Philip Tan posted some new ones on his Facebook Page.
