Each week we gather up the coolest comic book art 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 even post step-by-step processes or arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out.

Mike Henderson continues to update his Instagram with several new pieces of art.

@g_man

i challenge you to come up with an art pick without batman, joker, storm, harley quinn, emma frost and supergirl..................... they're in pretty much every single selection of picks............. give some love and exposure to characters you had like once in 2 years on that list

Can't get enough of Mike Henderson's stuff. He cranks them out like crazy and does a lot of Star Wars and non-big two stuff.

Also I think I've said this plenty too but I love Todd Nauck's Spider-Man. His baby Groot was pretty cool too.

Some other good stuff here but they were my favourites.

Gotta say, Deodato's stuff there is ridiculous. And not in a good way.

@mezame: you do realize I have no control what the artists post on their pages, right? And I do see some characters here that haven't been posted here or haven't been posted in a while. I'm not really clear what the problem you have with these posts.

i don't have a problem with your posts ............. as long as i'm concerned you can post whatever you like, but am i right in the assumption that you're picking the artworks you want to showcase? i just stated that it's a little bit boring seeing artworks from the same characters over and over again.............. but i don't even know how exactly you approach the picking of the artworks, so who am i to talk, right?

@mezame: I have a list of the artists' blogs and Tumblrs. I look for updated sketches that aren't from comics they're working on. I do "post whatever" I like. No one's telling me what to post. You're the first that has expressed concern. I'm can't tell the artists to draw more obscure characters. A lot of what they post are commissions, characters people ask them to draw. If you look at any of the artists' Tumblrs, etc, that I always link to, you see I pretty much post all the new stuff they've posted in the week. But when was the last time I posted Legion characters? Bossk? Motoko Kusanagi? Mon-El? POWER PACK? So apologies if you're bored with these posts. It's usually the most popular post of the week around here.

@g_man: i'm not bored by the artworks per say........... i should have went more in-depth on that topic, i guess............ i'm quite into art and if you ask me art has to tell a story............ some of the pictures you post look like they're telling a story and some of the pictures are just pictures of characters, which is not appealing to me, myself and i....... and if these pictures end up having the same popular characters over and over again, who everyone likes and therefore always draws it ends up 'bothering' me even more............ i like the stuff you're doing and some of your picks include true gems, but many pictures are not telling a story, which in my opinion is important........ you and everyone else might think otherwise........ but you also might viewing it with different eyes now..........

let me post few of the artpicks i would come up with and i guess that they will be pretty self-explanatory and they will tell a story, which captures the reader for longer....... it's not a simple drawing of batman then, but it's something you look at and realize that there is quite a lot going on there actually

@punyparker: It happens all the time, doesn't it?

I dont know if i told you,but i hate Gwen,and i really dont understand how "Spider-Gwen" became so popular all of a sudden,and MJ/Felicia are dissapeared or written COMPELETELY out of character.....

And i liked Emma Stone,cuz her "Gwen" was Ultimate Mary Jane,with good grades..........

But i remember you dont read much Spider-Man,so you have zero clue on what i'm talking about. :P
