We all love comic book art, right? Each week we gather up the coolest comic art that will never appear in actual comic books. The reason you won't is because artists often draw sketches for fun or for commissions and post them on their websites, blogs, Tumblrs and Twitter pages. They are too cool to be overlooked.

This week we had a new issue of TEEN TITANS and check out Brett Booth's take on Earth 2 Batman, Earth 2 Robin/Huntress and...Blue Falcon and Dyno-Mutt posted on his blog.

Denis Medri has been doing a lot of re-imaginings lately but this week he posted a nice tribute to Top Gun on his Deviant Art page. It might not be comic related but there was a character named Iceman...

That's it for this week. Hopefully we'll be seeing a load of more new art next week with Fan Expo happening. If you ever run into any artists that we feature here, be sure to let them know you've seen their stuff here. If you know of any other pro-artists with blogs or Tumblrs we should be looking at, let me know.

Tan and Booth appear to have a similar style, they're both the best here I think. Also huzzah for Black Bolt.

Love seeing brett booth's evolution. I remember his stormwatch days, then his incredible growth when he started doing backlash. It also helps that he's from the same area I am.

As ever, gorgeous frameworthy work by Takara, Rivera and the Nguyens - and scratchy, generic Jim Lee Stylee fare from Booth, who seems as incapable of drawing female proportions in a non-exploitative way as Lee himself.

Michael Walsh deserves a shout-out too. Gorgeous work!

Philip Tan's been killing it on here. Nightcrawler, Poison Ivy, Aquaman. I love 'em all. The Michael Walsh Daredevil and Punisher is pretty great.

@Novemberx2: His style definitely doesn't work with certain characters, but how exactly can you say that art is overrated when it's completely subjective?

The Blue Falcon and Dyno-mutt is awesome. Good job Booth. Brings me back.

What is the deal with the baby characters and redoing every character as a baby? I think it is getting old.

Comic writers constantly found ways to have WW in sexually compromising scenes. io9 (a sci-fi/science/fantasy site) created a list of WW's top villains, and I'd say 80% of the panels they included demonstrate some level of demeaning innuendo.

That Deadpool sketch is beyond epic, he can look pretty badass with the right penciler behind him.

Really? Booth? No.

Phillip Tan is hit and miss with me. I enjoy his pencil work but I didn't enjoy his work on Agent Orange. The stuff he has here is a total hit though! And i do LOVE Takara! And McKone's work is looking incredible too.

Why does Denis Medris' work remind me so much of Bill Plymptons?

Also, how is it that i'm not a huge fan of Billy Tans' comic book work but LOVE his pencils? Go figure.
