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):

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.

This week is a special FRED VAN LENTE DAY edition! Fred (with help from two friends of his, Ben Fine & David Wellington) came up with a number of suggestions under the topic of something near and dear to Fred’s heart, who was the writer of a comic book that is being adapted into a major motion feature. That topic?

“COWBOYS & ALIENS”

Enjoy!

I’ll put them in order based on when they were suggested by Fred.

Brad Millette couldn’t make it this week, so our super-sub Nick Perks is filling in for him! As always, thanks, Nick! You rule!

Thanks so much to the artists and to Fred and friends for the suggestions! Now everyone head off to Twitter and give the artists some good options for the next installment!

NOTE: If you wish to participate in the Decemer Reader Art Gallery, you have a few days left 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!
