Awesome Art Picks: X-Men, Batman, Joker and More

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

It's time for some more cool comic book art that won't be appearing in comic books. The internet is a vast and exciting place. You can find almost anything.

Because we spend so much time online, every so often really cool comic art pops up. What separates this art for the millions of comic art that is uploaded each day is this art is done by professional comic book artists. I'm always amazed at the quality of art they do, mostly just for fun. This is art that deserves to be seen but will never be printed. Imagine if you could produce art of this quality on a whim whenever you wished.

The first piece you see here is from Cliff Chiang. He posted this the other day on his Tumblr page. I know I mentioned this art won't be in comic books but this piece did actually come from a Splash Page comic art book but was originally in black and white. The X-Men from the brings back such memories. Uncanny X-Men was such a different comic back then. This is where I get sad trying to imagine Cliff doing an 80s X-Men miniseries and I know it would never happen. But this would make an excellent poster or print. Somebody make it so!

What else do we have this week?

How about one more Cliff Chiang piece?

This picture of Black Canary, Green Arrow and Hal Jordan is actually from a private commission he did back in 2006. Both of these makes me want to read September's Wonder Woman #1 all the more.

What about Batman? Who doesn't like Batman? What about Batman drawn by David Aja?

David did this while at the France Comic Con. Based on his Twitter, he apparently does sketches for free. We'll see if he continues to do so after making that statement. I would think he'd get slammed by people asking for pics. It's just so good. So good that I had to include more than one. I limited myself to only posting three even though he was posting a few on Twitter.

His Joker is pretty creepy and Batwoman has a touch of elegance.

What about Tim Seeley?

This picture of Tigra was done for a Things From Another World auction supporting the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. You can fine more information here.

How about Rick Remender's Fear Agent? How about Fear Agent drawn by Brian Shearer?

Brian posted this on his blog the other day and mentioned he's heading to Comic-Con. Sounds like he'll be doing commissions.

To wrap things up, how about a couple images from Phil Noto? The first is another classy image (like his classy Sue Richards pic posted a couple weeks ago). Check out his version of Crystal from his Tumblr.

And here's a last minute addition posted yesterday called “Waiting for the Professor”, Xavier Mansion, 1966.
