Every week we gather up the best comic art that will never appear in comics. The reason they won't is because artists often draw sketches for fun or commissions and post them on their Tumblrs, blogs and websites. Some artists even arrange commissions through their websites so be sure to check them out.

This weekend is C2E2 in Chicago. The artists are busy working on sketches and you'll be happy to known that another Mystery Art Challenge is currently underway. We should also be seeing some art from the show pop up next week but some of this weeks sketches I managed to take pics of directly from the artists before they handed them off.

Peter Nguyen has been busy and he wasn't planning on posting these on his Tumblr but I had to take pics in order to share with everyone.

Jimmy Palmiotti was just doodling at his table in between signing books. I told him he needs to start drawing more. Check out his Jonah Hex sketch.

Chris Giarrusso posted a sketch he did of Jason Keith Phillips' DREDLOK characters along with a G-Man and friends sketch as well as a cover tribute on his website.

Check out the Heroes for Hire pic Khary Randolph posted on his Tumblr. He'll also have a print of this at C2E2.

Robert Atkins posted a Zatanna on his blog. You can check out a colored version over there as well.

Skottie Young is also at C2E2. He posted this Calvin and Hobbes sketch on his website along with his commission information.

Dustin Nguyen posted this sketch on his Tumblr with a mysterious caption.

Ron Salas posted this Spidey sketch on his website and mentioned how he loves the fact that Spidey makes him draw in a different way.

Here's a cool sketch cover Paolo Rivera posted on his blog.

Joel Gomez posted some Iron Man 3 card sketches on his Tumblr.

Mahmud Asrar posted some Superman sketches on his Tumblr.

Todd Nauck recently raffled off some sketches at a INVINCIBLE UNIVERSE signing and posted them on his Tumblr.

That's it for this week. Look for the Mystery Art Challenge coming up during the week.

The Heroes for Hire cover reminded me a little of the Black Dynamite cartoon on Adultswim. LoL. Actually if they made an animated series with this art work I would definitely tune in to watch. That show would be so cool!

Has anyone noticed Cap's missing thumb? That's an odd way to hold a gun...

The Mahmud Asrar pieces of Superman and Darkseid are awesome in my opinion.

@nickxh: Colleen Wing! One of Misty's partners in another team.

H4H pic takes it imo.

If any one's wondering, the "mysterious caption" for Dustin Nguyen's sketch of Damian says: "I WISH I could say more."

.....very interesting

Mahmud Asrar's Superman/Superboy looks a lot like the Karl Kesel Superboy :] i like that. though, he should stick to drawing women cos DAMN he's good at it

Man I wish Robert Atkins was drawing a regular series.

And that Heroes for Hire poster....I love that!

@lordrequiem: Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job Ive had. Last Monday I got a new Alfa Romeo from bringing in $7778. I started this 9 months ago and practically straight away started making more than $83 per hour. I work through this link,..............

seeing that heroes for hire poster makes crave two things, one of which i doubt i'll ever see in my life time. a heroes for hire movie and a new heroes for hire book. the team is right there in the poster. ethnically diverse, fun, cool characters. wish a company would be around today that made movies like in the 70s, this would rock

#36 Posted by KnightofSteel (361 posts) - - Show Bio

Marvel should start a wave of "street level heroes" films. I'd prefer an Iron Fist solo movie but if they went for Heroes for Hire I'd like to see Ray Park as Iron Fist, Terry Crews as Luke Cage, and Zoe Saltana as Misty Knight.

Of course now that the rights are back to Marvel for Daredevil there's no excuse to not make a solid DD movie.

Moon Knight would be cool.

You know when your at a sporting event or something and a super talented singer sings the 'National Anthem' ( for folks in the USA, mind you) misses on the high notes? You know that face you make..? That.." *yikes* oh boy.." kinda look?

that's the look I had with Peter Nguyen's Captain America sketch with his hand holding the gun... lol
