Awesome Art Picks: Power Man & Iron Fist, Spider-Man, Dredd and More

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

Each week we gather up as many cool comic sketches we can find. These are sketches that won't appear in comics. Artists often do sketches and commissions and post them on their websites, blogs and Tumblrs. They're too cool not to be seen. Many of these artists also do commissions or sell original art on their sites so be sure to check them out for more information. If you're aware of any artists' sites we're overlooking, don't hesitate to let us know.

There's been a lot of talk and interest in Spider-Man lately. Paolo Rivera is no stranger to the character. He posted some recent Spider-Man related commissions on his blog.

You might be wondering what the story is here. He posted on his site that he was supposed to draw Raphael but instead drew him with Michelangelo's nunchucks. He believes Laura Martin, who colored the sketch, put the word balloon in. The fan that commissioned it even got the comic professionally graded.

Todd Nauck posted a Power Man and Iron Fist sketch on his Tumblr this week. The pic really conveys the fact that you do not want to mess with these guys.
