Awesome Art Picks: Batman, Emma Frost, Green Lantern and More

The coolest comic book art you won't see in comics.

It's time to sit back and enjoy the coolest comic book art you won't see in comics. You might be asking why that is? If the art is so cool, shouldn't it be in actual comics? The answer is artists often do sketches for fun or commissions and post them on their Tumblrs, blogs and Twitter pages. The art is way to good to be overlooked.

People like Deadpool still, right? Robert Atkins posted a couple Deadpool images up on his blog. he also posted a sweet Moon Knight sketch. Check out his site for information about getting your own commissions from Robert.

It's funny, Robert said, "In my mind he's basically SnakeEyes with a personality...and more than a little crazy."

Speaking of commissions and buying art, Chris Samnee has sketches for sale on his site. Don't delay, buy today! You know they're not going to be on sale for long. Here's a few examples of what could be yours.

Last one is priceless.

Posted by Guib

Superman sits in the chair, turns around to talk, but finds out Batman is not there anymore.

"Dude! Everytime! Why are you always vanishing??"

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

McKone's Death of the Endeless FTW I say.

Posted by Bestostero

I desperately miss that Red Robin outfit, after playing it on Arkham City Harley's Revenge...I just can't believe they change that look into the current look, bad bad decision.

Posted by haydenclaireheroes

I love the Tim Drake and Green Lantern picture

Posted by LordRequiem

Peter Nguyen's Storm is excellent, all comic book art should be that calibre.

Posted by ArtisticNeedham

So many awesome pics! I love the rockabilly Batman designs. These are two of my favorites:

Two-Face and the Riddler. I love how Two-Face is a preppy jock type and a greaser type. And I love Riddler's 3D glasses.

I also love this picture of the Beast. But there is just too much good stuff here.

I love the first picture of Deadpool. Truly excellent. But that "Captain Joker and Mr. Quinn" picture just scares me.

Posted by kennybaese

The Nguyen Lantern drawing is gorgeous.

Posted by Miss_Garrick

So many amazing works to chose from!

Posted by B'Town

Great picks!

Death of the Endless is my favorite, gorgeous.

Posted by Blood1991

I really love the Storm sketch. Hope he finishes it soon.

Posted by YourNeighborhoodComicGeek

Lol at the Draw Something one. All of these were good, especially the Deadpool ones and the Green Lantern ones. (The GL one was probably the hardest to draw due to the extra coloring, shading, and the 3D effects.)

Posted by Joygirl

Not sure how I feel about Captain Joker and Mr. Quinn. I'm confused.

Posted by NyxEquitis

Rockabilly Amazing, such an awesome idea.
