The Line it is Drawn #117 – A Fond Farewell to Hostess!

by  in Comic News Comment

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, Bill Reed, Sonia Harris, Melissa K. and Ken H.

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 9:00 AM Pacific this Friday).

The topic is…

Based on a suggestion from somebody (repeated by Axel Medellin), pick a comic book character that you’d like to see a “Lil'” version of (like Lil’ Archie, Hellboy Jr. or all of those Skottie Young covers)

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

In honor of the sad news of Hostess Brands going out of business, the theme (which was suggested by a lot of people) is to pick a comic book character that you’d like to see our artists do an old school Hostess ad for. You can also name which Hostess product you’d like to see the character sell, but that’s optional.

Enjoy!

NOTE: If you like art challenges (and I bet a lot of you Line it is Drawn fans do), be sure to check out our “Draw a page from Archer and Armstrong #1” art challenge here! The winning page will appear on Valiant Comics’ website! Enough people asked that I extended the deadline to this Monday, December 3rd!

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