Awesome Art Picks: Joker, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man and More

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

It's hard to believe a week has gone by already since the last installment. This is the point in the week we look back at all the really cool comic art artists have posted on their blogs, Tumblrs and Twitter pages. Artists often do sketches for fun or commissions and it gives us the chance to see their take on characters they might not normally work on. Many artists also arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out for more information.

Last week Todd Nauck was at the Long Beach Comic & Horror Con. He did several commissions there and posted a bunch on his Tumblr.

You'll see another piece from those four and more at the end of this post.

I always say I want to see more from Marcio Takara. Sounds like he might be doing a two-issue stint on THE FLASH as Francis Manapul takes a couple issues off. Here's a couple sketches he posted on his Tumblr. The first we saw just the penciled version last week.

Skottie Young has done some Harry Potter sketches in the past. He posted some more 'daily sketches' which later go on sale on this site this week. I'd definitely read a Harry Potter comic drawn by Skottie.
