The Line It Is Drawn #26 – Comic Book Cover Homages

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 3,000 followers, I’ll either do another extra edition of Comic Book Legends Revealed the week we hit 3,000 or I will do another Month of Greatest Stories Ever Told (your choice)!

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 9:00 PM Pacific, Thursday, February 3rd).

Next week’s theme is…

In honor of Valentine’s Day, come up with a mash-up of comic book characters and characters from famous romances, whether it be novels, films, TV shows, theater or even other comic books! For instance, Scott Summers and Phoenix re-creating the climactic kiss in Casablanca.

Read on for the six sketches that came about courtesy of the last question/challenge (which we had over 100 suggestions for!!):

Pick a comic book character and place him/her/them into an homage of a famous comic book cover!


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!

Rafael will no longer be contributing. We will miss you, Rafael, you were great!

This week, I will also be featuring the cover being homaged!

Daniel Irizarri is the artist for this one. Here is his website. Daniel decided to do a bit of a…profane take on this one, so if you’re put off by profanity, feel free to skip this one!
