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.

For some reason I forgot to post this sketch cover Todd Nauck posted on his Tumblr and sold on eBay. He also posted a Princess Leia sketch cover and more Post-It Notes sketches.

For your next art challenge you should ask them to draw Supergirl as a Jedi.

That Thor vs Black Adam pic will be used in the battle thread for sure.

I wish more of these great artists would make some Mortal Kombat fan art. I mean we get one every once in a while, and it's almost always great. But, I dunno, with MKX on the horizon my excitement level is really high for it. I guess I just hope that others are as excited for the game as I am.

Still, this was a really great week. And I really appreciate @g_man for collecting them all for the site to see. :)

Wow I thought I would never say this but Power Girl looks a little flat.

Thor Vs Black Adam is this weeks highlight.

Henderson's Storm looks amazing. The lightning in the background was a nice touch as it really sets the portrait off. I'm also loving the Thor vs Black Adam.

Incredible round-up this week, just seems like almost every piece here is a certified stunner.

That Thor Vs. Black Adam by P. Tan......Holy Mjolnir......WOW WOW WOW.

@crimsonlord53: I like that Power Girl, lets the character shine.

Yea, that BA/Thor is pretty awesome. Although looking at it again Thor looks like he's a good two feet taller than Black Adam considering he's coming from behind him. To me the perspective is off.

Gene Gonzales's Invisible Woman is gorgeous.

Love Cinar's Catwoman and Darth Vader too.

Definitely have to say that J. Scott Campbell Buffy Vs. Vampirella...awesome. Mike Henderson, really loving a lot he's been doing as well.

So many more artists I am in awe of this week.

Just wanted to say I hope we can see more of Terry Dodson's art sometime in the near future.

I LOVE these SO much. I am feeling like these sketches are the reason I love comic books in general.
