Each week we search for the coolest 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 blogs, Tumblrs, and websites. Some artists even pre-arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out.

Ron Salas posted some new art on his Tumblr including a Valentine's Day version of Power Girl.

That Mike Deodato Thor, Tan's Sin & Williams' Jay Garrick steal the show for me this week.

That Diabolic by Samnee, woooooo!

That retro looking Bats by Salas is off the chain too.

Tom Raney is just way too cool.

Skottie's and Cheek's stuff is always a pleasure to see too.

I'd not heard of Chrissie Zullo before now. Instant Twitter follow. I love the way she draws faces.

Some other great stuff here too, like Ron Salas' Nightwing, and Marcus To's sketches.

I feel like a lot of the overly familiar artists here were trying out some new styles. Everything is looking fresh and fantastic. Favorite of the week has to be Skottie Young's Penguin.

I never heard of Chrissie Zullo but I definitely want to see more.

That Marcus To art looks great but I have no idea who he's drawing.

Still infatuated with Chrissie Zullo, still hoping she puts up another original sketch for sale, since I didn't even try to get tickets for SDCC today, since it's practically impossible now, without knowing someone who knows someone, to get into artist's alley.

Freddie Williams II Catwoman art is the one that did it for me this week.

Also a big fan of Chrissie Zullo's work as well.

Galloway's Wonder Woman kind of looks like the Amazon princess as a Pokémon trainer.

There was not a lot from him this time around, but IMO, Philip Tan is consistently the best.

@winter_kills: I couldn't agree more!!

For real, Deodato & Tan are always awesome, & it is always cool to see classic Jay, the way he's meant to be.

This! Henderson's Sailor Moon looks really, really weird. And Marcus To's Seirin boys look gorgeous.

Superior Spider-Man is perfect! The right amount of Spider-Man and the right amount of creepy.

Takara always amazes, his lines are beautiful and Mike Deodato Jr.'s Classic Thor and Daken are like hot chocolate on a cold night (which tonight is). I love them.

Ron Salas' Powergirl for Valentine's is perfect as well.
