Awesome Art Picks: Jean Grey, Aquaman, Batwoman and More

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

Every week we gather up the best comic book art that will not be seen in actual comics. The reason they won't is because artists often draw sketches for fun or commissions and post them on their blogs, Tumblrs and websites. Some artists even arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out.

This weekend is HeroesCon and, sadly, I didn't make it there. But Todd Nauck will be there (at Table AA-911). Be sure to get to him early if you're looking for a commission. Check out the sketches he's posted on his Tumblr and Instagram page. He also posted a lot from Friday on his Twitter Page.
