The Line it is Drawn #1, 8/3/10

Let’s get the standard stuff out of the way.

You should follow Comics Should Be Good on Twitter (if you have Twitter, that is – if you don’t, you can go sign up). Here is our Twitter page… And here are the Comics Should Be Good writers who are on Twitter (the links go to the person’s Twitter account) – myself, Chad Nevett, Kelly Thompson, Sonia Harris Danielle Leigh, Melinda Beasi and Michelle Smith!

The blog’s Twitter account updates whenever a new post is put up on the blog, so it’s an easy way to keep up with the blog. Plus, if we reach 2,000 followers, I’ll do an extra edition of Comic Book Legends Revealed the week we hit 2,000. At 3,000 followers, I will do another Month of Greatest Stories Ever Told!

Now on to the bit!

So every week, I will ask a question here. You reply to it on our Twitter page (just write @csbg with your reply) and our SIX blog sketch artists will each pick one of your sugestions and I will post them here every week. So every week you will have a new question and you will see the top six choices from the previous week.

To qualify, you have to be following us when you reply – so go follow us and then give your answer to the following question/challenge (all suggestions due by 11:59 PM Eastern on Thursday, August 5th):

These were all the rage when it was first announced that Walt Disney was buying Marvel Comics, and now you get another chance (feel free to re-use one if you came up with a cool one of these back then) – come up with a cool combination of a Marvel Comics property with a Walt Disney property. Be creative! No Spider-Mouse, please!

Read on for the six sketches that came about courtesy of the last question/challenge:

What would be your dream crossover between characters from two different comic book companies (that hasn’t already taken place, that is)?


I’ll put them in alphabetical order based on the name of the Twitter user who made the suggestion. Note, I screwed up and accidentally two separate artists both selected the same sketch idea. I will avoid that in the future. My apologies. So it’s six sketches of five suggestions! Sorry about that, folks!

All copyright and trademarks of the following characters are held by their respective owners!

darthkiks suggested:

I’d like to see an Invincible crossover with Spider-Man. Spidey could give him some pointers on how to be a teenage superhero.

Daniel Irizarri is the artist for this one. Here is his website.

j_bacardi suggested:

Hellboy and the Demon Etrigan.

Brad Millette is the artist for this one. Here is his website.

MarkKirwan was the lucky one whose suggestion got used TWICE. He suggested:

Atomic Robo & the Fantastic Four, Marvel’s foremost action scientists! He can talk science with Reed and punch stuff with Ben.

First, here’s a piece from Caanan Grall. Here is his website.

and next, here is a piece from Erich Owen. Here is his website.

Sorry for the mix-up, Canaan and Erich!

Finally, MechanisticMoth suggested:

Dream Crossover: Mirage Universe Ninja Turtles with The Walking Dead. Why? TMNT fighting side by side with Rick Grimes, oh yeah.

Rafael Desquitado is the artist for this one. Here is his website.

Pretty cool stuff, huh?

Thanks so much to the artists and the suggestion-givers! Now everyone head off to Twitter and give them some good options for next week!
