The Line It Is Drawn #16 – Amalgamated Comic Book Characters!

Let’s get the standard stuff out of the way.

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… 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 18th):

Pretty straightforward challenge this week – team-ups or mash-ups of comic book characters with characters from any one of the six Star Wars films!

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

Remember Amalgam Comics? When Marvel and DC merged their characters together, like Superman and Captain America became Super Soldier? Stuff like that? Well, that’s the theme this week, only you can use amalgamate ANY two characters from ANY comic book company!


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

All copyright and trademarks of the following characters are held by their respective owners!

Brad Millette couldn’t make it this week, but as luck may have it, reader Nick Perks did a piece based on this week’s theme for December’s Reader Art Gallery. Since it’s been awhile since we had six pieces for you folks, I figured I might as well share Nick’s piece with you all (it certainly helps that Nick’s piece was very well done)! So if you folks want to draw a piece for next week’s theme, who knows, it might end up getting used like Nick’s (if not, it’ll still end up being seen in December’s Reader Art Gallery!).

BigMike20X6 suggested:

She-Ra + She-Hulk

Mike went with “She-Rulk,” but I think “Hulk-Ra” works better…

Rafael Desquitado is the artist for this one. Here is his website.

BigMike20X6 ALSO suggested:

Squirrel Girl + Supergirl = Kara Sqr-El

Caanan Grall is the artist for this one. Here is his website.

gijoerice (who made his suggestions after the deadline, but luckily before Nick decided to do a piece) suggested:

Hopey Glass and Mary Marvel!

which, would, of course, be Hopey Marvel!

Nick Perks is the artist for this one. Nick did not give me a website address.

For you Hopey fans who don’t like seeing her in color, Nick provided a black and white version of the above piece! Check it out here.

NoMoreDucks had a big week, as well, as he suggested:


as…The Joker’s Venom!!!

Daniel Irizarri is the artist for this one. Here is his website.

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!

NOTE: If you wish to participate in the Decemer 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 November) to me at is 6pm Eastern time on Thursday, December 9th! We received a lot of drawings this month – so I’d like to see just as many next month!
