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, Greg Burgas, 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 Noon Pacific Friday).

The topic is…

In honor of our own Daniel Cox’s music video directorial debut (which you can see here), the theme is mash-up comic characters and famous music videos!

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

In honor of Roger Ebert’s passing, mash-up a comic book character with a film that Ebert gave four stars to. Here is a list of all the films Ebert gave four stars to (1967-2007).

Enjoy!

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