Each week we search for the coolest comic book art that won't ever appear in comics. The reason they won't is because artists often do sketches for fun or for commissions and post them on their websites, blogs and Tumblrs. Many artists even arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out for more information.

Marcus To posted a commission he did recently of Dick Grayson and Damian Wayne on his Tumblr.

Have you seen the common theme that's been popping up this week?

Brett Booth has been announced as the new artist for NIGHTWING beginning with issue 19. He posted some Nightwing sketches on his blog along with a new Cyclops sketch and some Dr. Fate designs. You can see more of the different variations on Fate's costume over at his blog.

Really like Brett Booth's Nightwing and the Dr. Fate redesign is one of the best of the New 52, even if it is a little busy.

Oh. My. God.

Brett Booth is taking over on Nightwing!!?!?

*fangasm*

His art was the only redeeming quality of Teen Titans.

The pics posted here are awesome and I love the design of Dick's costume. I can't wait for issue #19 now!

it's going to suck not seeing Booth on Teen Titans anymore but having him on Nightwing is going to be awesome!!

also does anyone else remember when the New 52 started and everyone was saying how much they didn't like Booth's work and now look at everyone saying how great he is

@judasnixon: Unfortunately there are quite a few books that I've felt Phil Noto's artwork was wasted on... I thought he was getting lucky with Ghost, but I guess I was wrong.

Honestly I would love to see Phil doing more Bat titles. He was great on Batgirl, although the story he was handed for Sirens wasn't exactly awesome.

Yes, Dr. Fate looks great!

And, Steve Ditko made every artist after him draw all those wed-lines on Spider-man's costume!

Fate is gonna be a nightmare to draw!

(Reminds me of when they added all that stuff to Moon Knight... that had to be hell to draw!)

All the art is great... loved the Betty and Bond!

I really like Daniel HDR's Deathstroke. I think that Deathstroke is the only character whose pre-Flashpoint look I favored to his New 52 costume. I mean, his New 52 costume is okay and I like certain parts of it, but there's some I miss from his old costume, like those "strings" (if they can be called that) that used to hang behind his head and the foldover boots. If they could find a way to merge the best parts from both into one costume, then I'd be extremely happy.

Although I jhave to say that I freaking LOVE Trigon's new look, especially the way that Phillip Tan draws it. Dr. Fate's new costume also looks pretty amazing. It looks more sorcerer-like than before.

I find it funny that s many artists are now shifting over to drawing the New 52 costumes as opposed to the older looks, especially because a few weeks ago, I saw someone pointing out how artists usually stick to the pre-Flashpoint costumes.

Please everybody, post on Brett Booth's blog telling him how much you love his Fate designs! Hopefully he'll pitch the idea to DC who could potentially give him Doc Fate an ongoing with Booth on the art!!!!

Nauck and Williams continue to deliver - glad to see that the latter will be at the KC Con in April. I plan on bartering first-born for a sketch cover.

Time and again both Brett Booth and Philip Tan knock me off my feet with their art. All the art posted is wonderful but their work just never ceases to amaze me.

Noto and Nauck's styles are so instantly recognizable and I enjoy all they do. Michael Walsh and Mike Mayhew always manage a lot of action and great characters. I really love that Spidey and Black Cat by Cheung. Nice to see a Bettie Page piece here, even if it is just a profile. Looks great, nice work by Rivera.

Freddie Williams' style is somewhat reminiscent of Todd Nauck's work. Not a bad thing by any means. His Batman is a bit more "wide" than other renditions of him but I like the style he's got going, esp the inks.

More Terry Dodson, please!
