It's time once again to check out some of the coolest comic art on the internet that you won't see in actual books. The reason is artists often draw sketches for commissions or for fun on their personal blogs and Tumblr accounts. It gives them a chance to draw characters they want to and may not normally get the chance on their assigned books.

Because the holidays are just around the corner, now about we start off with a little holiday-themed piece of art. This comes from the talented Phil Noto.

Phil posted this pic of Tony Stark on this Tumblr account and for some reason I get the impression that Tony isn't going to necessarily be behaving later on.

Phil also posted this really cool set of 'photo booth' pics of X-23 and Jubilee.

Joel Gomez posted a few cover sketch commissions on his Tumblr this week. Check out his Psylocke, Ultron and Iron Man.

Last week, Joel did a really cool Nightwing and he posted another earlier this week.

Staying with the Batman-theme, Dustin Nguyen posted a sketch on this Tumblr of Poison Ivy 'in the Fall.' You know, I didn't get it at first but that's pretty dang hilarious. Typical Dustin.

He also posted a couple older pieces he had lying around.

There's one more Batman piece. This one is from Dan McDaid's blog and is a commission feature Batman and the Joker.

Captain America often puts in an appearance here and Paolo Rivera posted a nice commission on his blog of Cap and Bucky.

Speaking of Cap and Bucky, Francesco Francavilla will be drawing CAPTAIN AMERICA AND BUCKY with issue #625 (on sale December 28) and posted this little teaser of Bucky. Why so angry?

Francesco is an ace when it comes to the pulp art and check out this ultra cool old timey rocket.

Everyone loves Gambit, right? Agnes Garbowska posted this sketch of the ladies (not just from the Marvel Universe) trying to get some Gambit-lovin.'

Agnes also posted a scan of a commission she did earlier. I have to admit I'm lovin' it.

Michael Walsh has been posting some cool art on his Tumblr. Check out his Marvel poker scene, Martian Manhunter and a pic from a little video game called The Elder Scroll V: Skyrim.

Our final image comes from Francis Manapul. This was actually reblogged on Dustin Nguyen's Tumblr. Superman's looking pretty good.

That's it for this week. I have a feeling we might not be seeing another installment over the next couple weeks. I will be keeping my eye out for the most awesomest art around but I have a tiny feeling some of the artists might be taking some well-deserved time off to spend with friends and family. Hope you enjoyed these.

I don't think I like the look on Cap's face...

Wow Manapul can do Superman wonderfully! And that's another solid Nightwing by Gomez. Great stuff!

Manapul can draw just about anyone. They look amazing!

The X-23 & Jubilee picture is unbelievably funny. It sums up everything I love about the relationship between these characters. Phil Noto's art is always great.

I wish there was an easier way to find different tumblrs belonging to comic artists. So far I just find them based on the ones recommended in these weekly articles

#11 Posted by tonis (6202 posts) - - Show Bio

several really memorable ones this week, nice finds. The Jubilee/X-23 shots are so fun and goofy, absolutely love those. :)

Have to agree. Not hating but he looks....odd.

However all the works here are excellent, very nice assortment. Michael Walsh's works are wonderful and that Martian Manhunter is actually beautiful. Great picks yet again, G-Man!

Rivera appears to be echoing the style used by Kirby and Simon when they originally drew Cap & Bucky back in the 40s. I think it's an excellent example of an artist homaging someone else's style while still maintaining their own.

Wait, wait wait! You guys have a problem with Cap's face, but not Bucky's creepy "Raep Time" face?

Special love for Phil Noto and his 'retro hero parties' work. Truly Amazing.

me encanta el Batman como poseído, es brutal! y la del Joker junto a Batman y Robin de los 60! qué recuerdos jeje

#35 Edited by Decept-O (7275 posts) - - Show Bio

@TheMadMonkey: Sorry man nothing to do with the somewhat Kirby-esque style here that DXMagma and I are commenting on, it has to do with the look on Cap's face. He looks odd with that smirk or smile. ( EDIT ) No disrespect to Mr. Rivera. @LiquidSwords: Well I wouldn't quite go that far but OK. Cap just looks a bit "off" here. I could never do as good a job as this artist, yet Cap just looks kind of odd to me.

Seems like I may have previously seen a few of these but all the art shown is just fantastic no matter what.

Joker (Romero), all the Batmen, Nightwing, and FM's Superman are bloody awesome!!!

I like them all. We have a lot of talented people here. Love the poker scene, Cap and Bucky, Ivy, Lea/Chewie, Skyrim, and Superman pics. One thing, why does the Joker have a French mustache in McDan's picture? (I make up nicknames in my sleep =)...) They are all fantastic though.
