The Line It Is Drawn #18 – The Everyday Lives of Superheroes (and Villains)

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, 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, December 9th – a lot of extra time since next week will be a special edition of The Line It Is Drawn with the topic and who is making the suggestions being a secret for now):

This week’s topic is: Like a topic we did awhile back mashing-up/teaming-up comic book characters with famous sitcoms (which, admittedly, ended up with a few non-sitcom suggestions), this time around it is mashing-up/teaming-up comic book characters with famous TV DRAMAS! Law and Order JLA, X-24, stuff like that.

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

Come up with a scenario where a superhero is doing a mundane task. Batman doing the laundry, Spider-Man mowing the lawn, etc. The odder the juxtaposition, the better!

Enjoy!

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

Thanks so much to the artists and the suggestion-givers! Now everyone head off to Twitter and give them some good options for the next installment! Look for the drawing from our back-up artist, Nick Perks, in the next day or so.

NOTE: If you wish to participate in the Decemer Reader Art Gallery, you have a week 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 bcronin@comicbookresources.com is 6pm Eastern time on Thursday, December 9th! We received a lot of drawings last month – I’d like to see a bunch this month, too!
