For most people New York Comic-Con marks the end of convention season, capping off a long summer of announcements, reveals, and other assorted fun. As such, it's also one of the last big places for fans to get amazing sketches and commission pieces from artists, who tend to cap off the season with some truly amazing art.
Marcio Takara may be best known to long-time readers for his extraordinary "tiny characters" series, or for his work on Captain Marvel, Smallville, and the Kickstarter-supported original graphic novel Earthward with writer Bryan Q. Miller. He's also one of the hardest working artists you'll find in any Artists' Alley at convention season, and New York was no exception; his commissions include Captain Marvel, Rocket Raccoon, and a very striking Illyana.

Superman, Power Girl, Jubilee, Robin -- no beloved character was held sacred! You can browse Henderson's tantalizing array of tooting titans after the cut.
Philip Tan's career in comics has spanned "Spawn" and Grant Morrison's "Batman and Robin," and you've probably seen a wide range of reactions to his work regarding the latter. What you haven't seen if you've not been following Tan's Twitter account, however, are the stacks of sketches and commissions that he frequently posts, all of which would be worthy prizes for art buyers who happen to run across his table in an artists alley somewhere...
