The Line It Is Drawn #27 – Valentine’s Day Edition!

by  in Comic News Comment

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, Greg Hatcher, 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 10th).

Next week’s theme is…

In honor of the Grammy Awards this Sunday, mash-up a comic book character and a famous music album cover (Fantastic Four walking down Abbey Road, stuff like that)! Bonus points for suggestions involving Bob Dylan album covers!*

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

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!

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!

No Daniel or George this week, but Nick threw in a bonus drawing and we welcome our new fill-in artist, Sean McFarland!

b_granderson (who had hard luck this week, as he had suggestions picked by both George AND Daniel this week, so he went from 4 suggestions used to just 2) suggested:

joker and harley quinn as bonnie and clyde

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

Both b_granderson AND dhacker615 suggested:

Michael Magtanong is the artist for this one. Here is his website.

BigMike20X6 suggested:

Batman & Catwoman on a bicycle, ala Butch Cassidy

Our newest artist, Sean McFarland, is the artist for this one. Here is his website.

Edwardthe_III suggested:

Batman and Catwoman in Casablanca, maybe with Slam Bradley as her other love interest.

Nick Perks is the artist for this one. Here is his website. Nick had two different takes on this one. One was just to dress Bogie up as Batman…


And another was to have the Batman cast of characters take the place of the cast of Casablanca (including, quite humorously, the Joker being played by Conradt Veidt, who portrayed The Man Who Laughs, which might very well be the visual basis for the Joker)…

nicolhay suggested:

How about Madrox and Siryn in the deli scene from When Harry Met Sally?

Caanan Grall is the artist for this one. Here is his website

shurwitt suggested:

Starro jilts Star Sapphire, old-fashioned romance comics style.

Nick Perks did a bonus drawing of this one, as well. Again, here is Nick’s website.

Thanks so much to all of the suggestion-givers and, of course, our awesome artists! A big welcome to Sean!

Happy early Valentine’s Day!

Now go make suggestions for next week’s theme!!

NOTE: If you wish to participate in February’s Reader Gallery, be sure to drop me an e-mail with a JPEG of your drawing (you can submit up to two drawings per month) by 3pm Pacific time this Thursday, February 10th! Use any topic that has been featured on The Line It It Drawn (I’d prefer you use stuff from January’s editions, but I won’t hold you to that)! Not a lot of folks have contributed this month. I might just drop the feature if it continues to get a paltry turnout (as it is mostly designed for folks to share their art – if they don’t feel like doing so, that’s fair enough).

*Bonus points don’t count for anything. I just figured it sounded good to say “bonus points!”
