Awesome Art Picks: Spider-Man, Superman, Heroes for Hire and More

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

Every week we gather up the best comic art that will never appear in comics. The reason they won't is because artists often draw sketches for fun or commissions and post them on their Tumblrs, blogs and websites. Some artists even arrange commissions through their websites so be sure to check them out.

This weekend is C2E2 in Chicago. The artists are busy working on sketches and you'll be happy to known that another Mystery Art Challenge is currently underway. We should also be seeing some art from the show pop up next week but some of this weeks sketches I managed to take pics of directly from the artists before they handed them off.

Peter Nguyen has been busy and he wasn't planning on posting these on his Tumblr but I had to take pics in order to share with everyone.
