This is the time we gather up all great comic book art from the comic professionals that will never actually get printed in comics. The reason why is artists often do sketches and commissions and post them on their websites, Tumblrs, blogs and Twitter pages. They are too good to not get the spotlight.

With Judge Dredd's movie opening in theaters (in the U.S.) this weekend, let's start off by taking a look at Paolo Rivera's version posted on his blog.

== TEASER ==

Mike Deodato posted some convention sketches on his Tumblr. Check out his Batman! Is it wrong that I love that pic of Spidey?

Check out the Marvel villains sketch Philip Tan posted on his Facebook page this week.

Todd Nauck posted some great sketches this week on his Tumblr. I don't envy anyone that has to draw an horde of zombies. Check out his 90s Jean, classic Sue and Captain America.

Chris Giarrusso posted a cover tribute, a sketch cover as well a cool pic of Doctor Who and Amy Pond on his website.

Speaking of Doctor Who, Francesco Francavilla usually does a minimalist poster after each new episode and posts it on his blog. Here's his take on Episode 7.03, "A Town Called Mercy."

Peter Nguyen is getting ready for New York Comic-Con. Here's a sketch for a print he's working on posted on his Tumblr.

Denis Medri posted a couple great pieces on his Deviant Art Page this week.

Daniel HDR posted a commission of Aquaman on his Tumblr. If you check it out, you can see it in different stages.

Brett Booth also posted a sketch of Aquaman on his blog.

Joel Gomez drew this picture of Joker on a sketch cover for BATMAN #0 and posted it on his Tumblr this week.

Michael Walsh also posted a picture of Batman and Doctor Strange on his Twitter.

Dustin Nguyen posted a couple sketches on his Tumblr and shows that even in simple pencil form, it's great stuff.

Mike McKone posted a bunch of sketches on his Twit Pic page this week.

Agnes Garbowska posted a Superman pic on her Tumblr she did for friends that had a baby they named Clark.

Mitch and Bettie Breitweiser's cat had a recent medical emergency. Luckily he's fine now. Mitch decided to do a small print run of their cat to help pay for the medical cost. You can find more info on his Tumblr.

Mitch also posted this cool Juggernaut pic on his Instagram.

Check out what Marcio Takara posted on his Tumblr this week. He's also making a print out of the Bat Family for NYCC.

Mahmud Asrar posted a couple sketches on his Instagram this week.

Freddie E. WIlliams II posted a few charity trading card sketches along with some "thank you" sketches on his TwitPic page.

As you're aware, it's 'zero' month for DC Comics. Each issue has a similar "burst" design with the character(s) busting through. Cliff Chiang had been working ahead on WONDER WOMAN and did the following cover before knowing they were going with the "burst" design. He posted it on his Tumblr and hopes it could be used somewhere but who knows what the chances of that are. It's pretty dang cool.

That's it for this week. Hope you enjoyed all the selections and be sure to check out the next installment in a week.

Booth's Aquaman seems a style very reminiscent of Michael Turner's. That's a good thing.

@btmt: Freddie listed her as "Armitage" but no idea who that is. Just looked really great.

@Metron144: I take art from comic book professionals' blogs and such.

@Miss_Garrick: That's Grifter and Zealot.
