  1. Where do these sketches come from? Are they pieces recently seen at cons? This is a great recurring feature, but I always wonder about the provenance of the works. My vote is for the Dr. Seuss.

      Click on the artist names. Some are con sketches and commissions while others are warm-up pieces artists routinely do at the start of the day and post on their blogs or DeviantArt page.

    Skottie Young always puts a smile on my face.
    Help me out here…..Bender? from?

  3. I love Scalera’s work. I hope that after Secret Avengers finishes up, he’ll be put on a high profile book. Really deserves it.

    These are all really awesome. Phillipps’ Dredd is gorgeous. I love the colors and the grit.

  5. drenboy36 drenboy36 says:

    Some wonderful sketches there but, and I know I’m being a pedantic old bugger here, it’s Frankenstein’s monster (no matter what DC say). Frankenstein was the geezer who created him, innit!

    • Grandturk says:

      Yes. Actually I’m reading Frankenstein right now. In the USA “geezer” implies an older person (in the UK it is more like the USA’s “dude” or even, “bro”). It should be noted that Victor Frankenstein was in his early 20′s during the creation of the “wretch.”

    • drenboy36 drenboy36 says:

      I am in the UK (jolly old London) so have used the right connotation of ‘geezer’. :-)

  6. Grandturk says:

    And might I say, this week – each one of these is fantastic!

  7. walterwhite walterwhite says:

    Frankenstein and Judge Dredd are my favorites this week.

  8. RaBoogie RaBoogie says:

    Dave Wachter’s Hellboy is really, really well done. Beautiful washes in there, and a fantastic expression.

  10. Ainslo Ainslo says:

    Full colour old school Dredd, you gotta love it.
    At first i thought this was going to be a Special Cigar chomping edition, they should do that.
    Excuse to get Robo Hunter an appearance.

  11. markavo markavo says:

    That’s the sexiest Wonder Woman I’ve ever seen!

  12. J. Zahm says:

    LOVE Brian Hurtt’s Hellboy! The monster he’s fighting looks like it’s straight out of The Damned.

  13. GrayDot GrayDot says:

    Wow, that Wonder Woman picture…I think I’m in love.

  14. OMG, That Wachter Hellboy is amazing!

    Am I the only one that thinks that the Wonder Woman sketch looks like Rihanna?
