Each and every week we gather up the best comic book art that you will not see in comics. The reason you won't is because artists often do sketches for fun and commissions and post them on their websites, blogs and Tumblrs. Many artists often arrange commissions through their sites so check them out for more detail if you're looking to own a cool original piece.

Chris Samnee has been busy posting on his blog despite the news of working on a story for the ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN digital series.

== TEASER ==

Mahmud Asrar posted a few pre-show NYCC commissions on his Tumblr along with some early Supergirl redesigns he and others worked on in 2011.

Cameron Stewart posted this Punisher sketch on his Tumblr. It started out as a quick sketch he then inked.

Chris Burnham posted this picture of 666 Batman and…Bat-Cow on his Twitter page.

Skottie Young did a daily sketch for KING CITY, which sold on his website.

Mike McKone posted a Silver Surfer commission on his TwitPic page.

Paolo Rivera posted a "Wake Up and Sketch" piece on his blog that was auctioned off for the Hero Initiative this week.

Agnes Garbowska did a great Doctor Who piece. She posted process shots over on her Tumblr, which you should check out. More info to come but it'll be sold through ComicArtHouse.

Michael Walsh posted a Raphael sketch on his Tumblr as well as the colored version.

Denis Medri posted a Bat-Family from the Rockabilly Batman universe on his Deviant Art Page.

Philip Tan posted a sketch of how he sees Deathblow on his Facebook Page.

Chris Giarrusso posted a Mini Spider-Man sketch cover commission on his website.

Todd Nauck posted a Superboy sketch from last year on his Tumblr as well as a She-Hulk piece on his Instagram page.

That's it for this week. Hope everyone is doing alright with the harsh weather on the East Coast.

Wait, it just dawned on me. 666 Batman AKA Damian, looks very pre New 52 Midnighter...

#11 Posted by AltyAce (43 posts) - - Show Bio

Saw the caption for Bat-cow, excitedly scrolled down to see image, there was none to be seen... then it dawned on me...

Also, I absolutely love Agnes Garbowska's colour work!

@feebadger: dick tracy is avaiable in the dailys at gocomics;-) I read the tarzan one myself

Mahamads work pisses me off. His rendition of supergirl looks all good here but in the comic, his art looks lazy. Also I was looking forward to seeing dustin nguyens work here. His pictures on little gotham is brilliant and I have continually been impresed by his batman beyond covers aswell. He is really becoming a top talent IMO:-)

Deathblow and 666 Damian look good

Totally wonderful this week. So many wonderful pieces. I think the piece featuring Supergirl playing tennis barefoot is the cutest and smexiest art, wonderful coloring, really love it.

That looks 10 X more epic than any of the stuff in the Green Lantern live action film.

Nauck's work continues to draw my attention week in and week out.

Those last two Supergirl outfits, the white with the infinity, & the mostly red skirt are awesome & need to be made into prominent alternate versions ASAP.

Give one to New52 Power girl maybe?

Agreed. The red skirt outfit needs to be used somewhere with Supergirl or even Powergirl...not liking her full-body suit.

Damian and Bat-Cow for the win.

#33 Posted by travmadison (16 posts) - - Show Bio

Its funny how the infinity suit is very similar to the DCnU Power Girl costume, but just a little bit of color would improve it lots.
