Awesome Art Picks: Nightwing, Thor, Wolverine and More

Some of this week's coolest comic book art you won't see in comic books.

It's time once again to check out some of this week's coolest comic book art that you won't ever see in an actual comic. 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 arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out for more information.

Next week is New York Comic Con. A lot of the artists seen here will be there, working hard in Artist Alley. One artist that has been doing several pre-con commissions is Marcio Takara. Check out the latest sketches and inked versions he posted on his Tumblr.
