Awesome Art Picks: Rogue, Spider-Man, Thing, and More

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

Each week we search for the greatest comic book art you won't see in actual comics. The reason you won't is because artists often draw sketches for fun or commissions and post them on their sites, blogs, and Tumblrs. Some artists even arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out.


Mike Deodato is busy shaking things up in the pages of ORIGINAL SIN but check out this Thing homage to Jack Kirby's "This Man...This Monster" he posted on his Tumblr.

Ryan Stegman is at Special Edition: NYC and will be at HeroesCon the week after. Check out this Wolverine commission he posted on his Tumblr and this nice pic of an unamused Medusa.

Todd Nauck was super busy at Phoenix Comic-Con and posted a bunch of sketches on his Tumblr. But someone needs to fess up. Whose Spider-Man and a Cactus is this? Looks like something perfect for a Mystery Art Challenge.

That's it for this week. There's a few conventions going on this weekend (which we sadly won't be at any). Hopefully this means we'll be seeing loads of more great art next time.

I'm the proud owner of that Marcio Takara Spider-Man. I am SO happy with it. If you ever get a commission from him, I highly recommend upgrading to the ink wash. Totally worth it.

Yes, Medusa, that's real cute, until it tickles Black Bolt's nose and makes him sneeze.

Still, d'aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwww! X3

@tranceformer: Super jealous, I hope I can meet Francis at some point. Would love to get a commission done by him as well.

As for the others, detail on that Thing piece is amazing. As usual Todd Nauck is just incredible with those con pics. Rogue is probably my favorite.

Thanks, Francis was super nice too. For the record, Todd Nauck and his wife are also both really friendly.

ohmigosh the Kevin Wada Winter Soldier is an uncanny likeness. Been enjoying his She-Hulk covers all year, too.

Todd Nauck is an all-time great. The "Black Widow with Garden Gnome" in the video was fantastic--like damn everything else he touches.

The Winder Soldier one was pretty cool, and just when I thought it was all good I see that Rogue one at the end. Well done.

Gomez's Winter Soldier Secret Avengers cover is badass. If that was the actual cover to the book, I'd buy it. And Deodato's homage to "This Man, This Monster"(one of my fave FF stories) is amazing, capturing all the atmospheric, moody nature that is connected with the story. Glad to see Deodato's killing it art-wise beyond his awesome work on Original Sin.

Takara's Spider-Man was nice but did he have a cast on his arm under his costume? He has no wrist on his left arm. And I love Deodato's art the past few years. His early career was decent but man, I gotta get everything he draws now-a-days.

Phillip Tan never disappoints, and Todd Nauck's Daryl Dixon, Yildiray Cinar's Magneto and Aquaman are my favorites as well.

@g_man Thanks for these G-Man. I LOVE these articles. AWESOME Art, I look through it thinking this one is my favorite, then I see the next one. I love Kirs Anka's art, and the bearded Cable is awesome, and probably my favorite this week is Rivera's Spider-Man versus his Rogues. Awesome week... as always.
