Each week we search high and low 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 websites, blogs, and Tumblrs. Some artists even arrange commissions through their sites so be sure to check them out.

Chris Samnee did an X-MEN cover for the Hero's Initiative. He also posted some sketches from Wizard World St. Louis and C2E2 on his blog.

That's it for this week. With so many conventions going on this weekend, we should be seeing another batch of great art next time.

I've been enjoying all the Ryan Ottley sketches week to week. The Clay Mann Daredevil and Doctor pieces are the real eye candy this week though.

Lots of great art on this one. I love Mann's Daredevil, that is an awesome, beautiful piece. I'd put that thing in a frame on my wall like a masterpiece. I loved everything by Francavilla, as always- especially Swamp Thing and Dr. Strange. Philip Tan always amazes me- I loved his Cable, and Samnee's Cable was awesome as well. Anka's Winter Soldier piece is intense- always great to see new Winter Soldier art. Takara's Hawkeye & Kate Bishop sketch is also pretty sweet. Paolo Rivera consistently proves he's one of the best artists in the biz- his Wolverine recreation captures all the essence and awesomeness of the original. I'd frame this too. And I also like Reilly Brown's Cap sketch, always good to see some great Cap art, too. Those are just some of the highlights for me.

Really dig Reilly Brown's Wiccan, Ryan Ottley's Ozymandias and Daredevil, and Marcio Takara's Rogue.

I hate to say this, but I find myself just scanning through the art super fast and giving up these days...I think you're including too much of it. Cutting it down to the very best would catch my attention more than a glut of stuff.
