The Line It Is Drawn #14 – Comic Book Characters/Comic Strip Characters

by  in Comic News Comment

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… 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, 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. In addition, I post new content on the blog’s Twitter account. As an incentive to follow us, 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 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 suggestions 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, November 4th):

The topic for this week is switching partners! Pick ANY two famous duos, say, Batman and Robin and Lone Ranger and Tonto. Then our artists will pick one character from each of the two duos to form a NEW duo! If our artists would like, they can draw both new mismatched duos, or just the one. So imagine Lone Ranger and Robin doing a domino mask team-up! Another example – Power Man and Iron Fist and Hopey and Maggie. Stuff like that. There are LOTS of duos out there – get creative!

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

Team-up or mash-up a comic book character with a notable comic strip character (Cathy as Wonder Woman, Calvin and Hobbes as Batman and Robin, stuff like that)

Enjoy!

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

You might notice I only said five sketches this week. We’re without Rafael Desquitado this week. He’ll be back next week, though!

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! This week was our lightest on suggestions in quite awhile, so please send more!

NOTE: If you wish to participate in the November Reader Art Gallery, you have plenty of time to do so! The deadline to send your artwork (based on any of the previous The Line It Is Drawn topics, although I’d prefer you choose ones from October) to me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com is 6pm Eastern time on Thursday, November 11th!
