Each week we search high and low across the internet for the coolest comic book art that you won't see in comics. The reason you won't see them in comics is because artists often draw sketches for fun or for commissions. They usually are kind enough to post them on their tumblrs or blogs to share with the world. Because they are so great we want to make sure everyone gets a chance to appreciate them.
This first piece sort of breaks the rules here. It's a variant cover for AvX by Skottie Young. But it's a Midtown Comics variant. That makes it more rare. And the art doesn't appear inside the comic. It's just so darn good, I wanted to post it one more time but now, without the logo.
Paolo Rivera is constantly posting pics of commissions he did at NYCC. Looks like he's seriously someone you need to track down if you ever attend a convention he's at. Check out Lady Sif and Spider-Man.
Phil Noto took part in the "creator owned day" Thursday and posted a pic of Triggergirl 6 which is part of part of Image Comics’ Creator Owned Heroes which is out in June.
That's it for this week. I know I didn't post as many as usual (my hotel internet was pretty bad). Be sure to check out our next installment with more Awesome Art Picks.
