The Line it is Drawn #100 – 100th Issue Celebration!

Go 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… http://twitter.com/csbg. And here are the Comics Should Be Good writers who are on Twitter (the links go to the person’s Twitter account) – myself, Greg Hatcher, Chad Nevett, Kelly Thompson, Sonia Harris Danielle Leigh, Melinda Beasi, Michelle Smith, Bill Reed and Scott!

I update 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. In addition, I post new content on the blog’s Twitter account.

Now on to the bit!

So every week, I ask a question here. You reply to it on our Twitter page (just write @csbg with your reply) and our blog sketch artists will each pick one of your suggestions and I will post them here every week. So every week you will have a new question and you will see the choices picked from the previous week. Here is an archive of all the previous editions of The Line It Is Drawn!

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 6:00 AM Pacific this Friday).

The topic is…

For next week’s #101 installment, it is Super Hero 101! Come up with a class you think a comic book would need to take/would be funny if they took. Wood Shop with Wolverine, History with the Planetary crew, etc. etc.

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

Very simply, tell us your favorite mash-ups, team-ups and re-imagined characters from our first 99 installments of The Line it is Drawn that you’d like to see given another spin! Boba Fett/Deadpool, the Muppet Lantern Corps, Captain America in Caitlin Fairchild’s outfit, etc. Here is the archive of the first 99 installments to give you some inspiration.

What we DIDN’T tell you was that our artists would then make special 100th issue covers based on those old drawings! Now you can see the awesomeness!

Enjoy!

We have some special guests this week! Many of our alumni returned this week to celebrate the big one-oh-oh (which also coincidentally is our 2nd year anniversary)! Sadly, Brad Millette’s computer broke down so he couldn’t make it this week (maybe Brad will show his almost-finished piece in the future!) and Caanan Grall also couldn’t make it this week. Among our regulars, Steve Howard was busy on a very cool secret project that we wish him a lot of luck on and Daniel Cox is busy on his current art direction project that will sadly take Daniel out of the loop for a couple months. But everyone else is here! Woohoo!!

I’ll put them in alphabetical order based on the name of the Twitter user who made the suggestion.
