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 Friday, January 14th).

Let’s all go to the movies! Team-up or mash-up comic book characters with a film from the last five years (2006-2010). Reed, Sue and Ben in the Hangover? Marvel Divas in Sex and the City the Movie? Stuff like that.

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

Come up with a comic book character and an animal, then our artists will draw a piece featuring that animal as that comic book character (to wit, a cat as Batman, a dog as Spider-Man, etc. etc. etc.)

Enjoy!

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!

Caanan Grall is not with us this week, but Brad Millette has returned! So Nick Perks will fill in for Caanan! Keep your eyes out for Michael Magtanong’s piece! It’ll appear soon!

doctor strange as an owl

Chaz Folgar is the artist for this one. Here is his website.

He interpreted the scene as, “It’s Dr. Strange Owl vs. the Dread Dormammouse within the belly of Caternity.
There’s a cameo by Galacta-squid, too!”

Thanks to our artists and the suggestion-givers! Great job by everyone!

NOTE: If you wish to participate in the January Reader Art Gallery, I think I’ll push it back a few days this time around, because I’m sure the holidays have delayed people a bit. So if you wish to participate, please send in your artwork (based on any of the previous The Line It Is Drawn topics, although I’d prefer you choose ones from December) to me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com by 6pm Eastern time on Monday, January 17th!
