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…

Based on a suggestion from our own Xum and in honor of the news that Spider-Man appears to be gaining a sidekick, come up with a sidekick for a superhero who has never had an official sidekick!

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

In honor of Labor Day, superheroes go to work! Imagine all the crime has been fought. So come up with new jobs for superheroes using their powers in new and interesting (and I presume odd) ways.

Enjoy!

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