Each week we search for the best comic book art that 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 websites, blogs, and Tumblrs. Some artists also prearrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out.

Mike Henderson posted a bunch of new art on his Instagram. He's selling original art HERE.

But this clearly wins and every other piece of art here must be burned for failing to match it's beauty

What is it about Spider-Gwen ... the best character costume so far this century, without a doubt.

Also, my signed artist print from Chrissie Zullo came today. Yay!

I'm dying to get an original piece. Hopefully soon.

For me, it's Mike Deodato Jr.'s Spider Gwen Pencil. His art is simply spectacular.

Do artist draw spider-Gwen because it inspires them to do so or do they just want their artwork to get notice

I love Tom Raney's daily sketches. Wish he'd do something creator owned, I love his ideas. The Gene Gonzales stuff was exceptional too. Every week these two guys blow me away.

IKR, he's obviously a very talented artist but something about his artwork kind of annoys me too

Always found his work a bit wonky and slightly out of proportion... Never been a big fan. but on the other hand, I don't have much against it.

Well, Spider-Gwen's costume does need some work. DOnt like how more than half of it is empty black.

Todd Nauck's colors are amazing! The blending and layers on stuff like Nightcrawler's Bamf cloud is out of this world. On his Symbiote Spidey he does a fantastic job of creating lines with shading, all on a post it note.

Really digging RAH's sketch covers. He pack so much detail into backgrounds and faces, just like his Spidey "PhotoBomb" cover.

This outfit is a million times better then Emma's current look. It should be her current outfit.

Or if they really wanted to push this idea that she doesn't wear white anymore cause she is broken then make it all black except leaving the belt and jacket white.

I also don't think I would mind a shirtless Namor. Just as long as he doesn't get a speedo again.

@greenlantern1999: I'm almost certain none of his drawings are of corporate characters. I think their all from his imagination.

I can really dig this redesign, bro. It's the best of the classic design, mixed in with a little (potential) DC Cinematic Universe/cosplay flavor.

Good job, man!
