Each week we gather up all the incredibly spectacular comic art that will never appear in actual comic books. The reason they won't is because artists often draw sketches for fun or commissions and post them on their websites, blogs and Tumblrs. We all love comic art so we need to make sure each amazing piece is seen and admired. Some artists arrange commissions or sell original art through their sites so be sure to check them out for more information.
Terry Dodson was recently at Supanova and posted another commission on his Deviant Art Page of Death.
Peter Nguyen posted a W.I.P. sketch of Wonder Woman he's doing for a friend's mom on his Tumblr.
Skottie Young posted some more Daily Sketches on his website. He sometimes offers these for sale in his online store.
