The Line it is Drawn #160 – Welcome Back to Hostess!

by  in Comic News Comment

Welcome to our weekly gallery of amazing art by our great collection of artistic talent, all working from YOUR suggestions!

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, 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 3pm Pacific Friday).

The topic is…

Comic book characters, comic strip style! Our artists will draw comic book characters in comic strips based on the style of a famous comic strip. So you pick a comic book character and then name the comic strip style you’d like to see the character drawn like. Example: “Spider-Man, Peanuts style”

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

In honor of Hostess’ return to store shelves everywhere, pick a comic book character and our artists will depict them in a Hostess ad


I’ll put them in alphabetical order based on the name of the Twitter user who made the suggestion (although a little bit different this week).
