Awesome Art Picks: Namor, Spider-Man, Punisher and More

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

Each week we gather up the coolest comic book art that won't appear 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 or websites. Some artists even arrange commissions on their sites so be sure to check them out.

This weekend is the Long Beach Comic and Horror Con. We will be there so that means you can expect to see another round of the Mystery Art Challenge. Here's a hint, I'm going to do something a tiny bit different.

Todd Nauck will be there. Check out the art he posted on his Tumblr, including a Spider-Man piece he donated for an action through Station Studio for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan.
