Each week we present to you, 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 websites, blogs and Tumblrs. Some artists even pre-arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out for more information.

Marcio Takara posted a commission and some warm ups on his Tumblr this week.

Mystery Art Challenge at Long Beach Comic Expo

A couple weeks ago the Long Beach Comic Expo happened. That means we did the Mystery Art Challenge. The way it works is, the camera rolls and the artists are given the challenge. It's always a well-known character with a random object. They then have to figure out what to do with the object to try to do something different from the other artists.

This edition featured Daredevil. If you missed it when we posted it this week, here's the entire segment.

If you want a close look at each sketch, check them out below:

That Marcio Takara Ms Marvel is so incredibleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! X-23 and Marcy are both great as well. I hope I can get a Mahmud commission at some point, will have to look into New York Comic Con.

I don't watch Dowton Abbey but that Todd Nauck rendition is just amazing. The way the gloves look and the gradation on the background is why I think Todd's coloring technique is one of the best.

Nice choices.

I like the second Wonder Woman sketch over her new costume that they've decided to go with.

Holy crap, there is so much gorgeous in this week's round up. Takara is just gold, Asrar's Wonder Woman just stuns and Henderson's Mojo is just creepy and awesome.

The Daredevil draw-off is amazing! Thank you so much for getting these artists to participate (and them for participating, of course) and yeah. I'm just going to sit back and enjoy them a bit more right now.

Joker and Harley sharing a kiss under the batsy moonlight is quite romantic!
