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, March 3rd).

Next week’s theme is…

As suggested by our own Daniel Irizarri, come up with scenarios where a current comic book characters meets up with him/herself when he/she first appeared. To wit, what would the current Batman react to purple gloves “carries a gun” Batman?

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

In honor of the late, great Dwayne McDuffie, team-up a comic book character with a creation of McDuffie’s, whether it be one of his many Milestone creations or one of his other characters, like Damage Control or his take on Deathlok

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!

Mic’s piece will be around later in the week. Sean will fill-in today!
