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 my pal (and blog co-founder) Alex Cox’s story in this week’s Adventure Time Annual, team-up or mash-up comic book characters with characters from Adventure Time!

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

Time to get your creative juices flowing! This week’s topic is Rejected Children’s Books Starring Comic Characters. How Ant-Man Ruined Christmas, Thanos’ Rainy Day Activity Book, stuff like that

Enjoy!

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

Before we begin, I’d like to take the opportunity to say goodbye to ANOTHER one of our Liners. Daniel Cox has always been really busy on a lot of different awesome projects (he storyboarded a goodly amount of the new Wolverine movie, for instance and he was the visual effects art director on The Great Gatsby), so he ultimately decided he’d rather not take up a spot if he couldn’t contribute on a more regular basis. Be sure to follow Daniel at his website to see what he has coming up in the future (although I’ll be sure to plug it here, as well)!

As another Liner exits, another new Liner enters. Please welcome the newest Liner, Nelson Flores! Here is Nelson’s first piece, based on a BeccaDannysWife/happysorceress/mikecantalupo/rulerbulon suggestion of

Goodnight Moon Knight
