Awesome Art Picks: Wonder Woman, Space Ghost, Batman with a Broom & More

The coolest comic book art you won't find in comic books.

San Diego Comic-Con may is over and everyone is still recovering. We saw a lot of amazing art and comic related news which is why we did not have an installment last week of Awesome Art.

In searching my usual areas for some picks for this week, I noticed that there hasn't been much in terms of updates. It's understandable as most artists have been busy the week before Comic-Con in preparing for everything. This week, everyone is trying to get back to their schedules and focus on their deadlines. There is still some nice pieces, only they may not be totally brand new.

This first amazing picture of Wonder Woman was done by Phil Noto. He always manages to add a simple touch of style and grace to his images. At Comic-Con, Phil was doing commissions and selling sketches. He mentioned on his page that this image would be for sale as well. Some lucky person just might have this piece hanging in their living room, kitchen or where ever right now. I'm curious what it would sell for.

What else is there?

== TEASER ==

Do you like Alex Ross? What about League of Extraordinary Gentlemen? What about both of those mixed with 30 Rock?

Thanks to The Dark Huntress for pointing this in my direction.

Chris Samnee did an impressive job this week on Captain America and Bucky. A couple weeks ago he posted both of these great pics.

I'm a big fan of Space Ghost. I'm talking about the original Space Ghost show. There was a pretty cool miniseries that came out in 2005 that you should check out if you haven't read it. The second pic is (obviously Godzilla).

I posted some quick sketches David Aja did at the France Comic Con. Here's another 'fast-free-sketch' he did.

Am I the only one that misses Aja on The Immortal Iron Fist?

To make up for the lack of new Awesome Art, I thought I'd share the awesome Batman with a Broom images from San Diego.

Here is Francis Manapul's:

Dustin Nguyen:

Chris Giarrusso:

Peter Nguyen:

Joel Gomez:

And Dennis Calero:

Be sure to check out the video in order to see them as they're being drawn.

In case you were wondering, there was a reason I had them draw Batman with a broom. Actually, there really isn't much of one. I wanted everyone to be able to see their drawing process. Drawing Batman should be easy for all of them. A broom added a different element that allowed them to interpret the idea however they saw fit. Hope you enjoyed.

Comic Con is like a box of ( insert  what you will ..) :You Never know what your going to get :D  
Love the sketches and thanks for pointing out the good stuff on the net for all of us to marvel at (thanks tony for making my day :D ) 
and Batman on brooms is very classy ( I like it a lot !) wish I would have drew on but oh well ,it`s back to the drawing board for me .

Godzilla looks pretty hot.
Batman with a broom also ended with some pretty great and hilarious outcomes.

@kfhrfdu_89_76k: Captain America and Bucky #620 just came out. Bettie Breitweiser does the colors. Samnee's art combined with Bettie's colors are amazing. I gave it a 5 out of 5.

All of them are so good! Alex Ross of course always shines. The Batman and Broom ones are great!

My respect for Alex Ross just went up about 200%.  Tracy's EGOT button, Frank the Martian...perfection all around.  And I love how Kenneth's hair is still visible.
Also, that's a good-lookin' Wondy.

Posted by ImperiousRix

The Phil Noto additions never fail to impress me.  Love that dude's work!

Wow Ross, are you that stupid to NOT know the difference between a black dude and an Indian/Pakistan/Middle eastern dude? That is AWFUL Ross! By the way your watercolor is overrated! So drop your ego down 4-5 notch will ya? 

Posted by 1fearless1

Oh I remember who that black dude is now. That's Tracey Morgan!
