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 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 6 AM Pacific, Friday, April 29th).

Next week’s theme is…

With the release of Thor coming next week, the theme is team-up, face-off or mash-up comic book characters and characters from Norse, Greek and/or Roman Mythology!

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

“In the Style of.” You name a comic character and then name the artist you want to see that character drawn in. For instance, “Superman, in the style of Charles Schulz” or “Calvin and Hobbes, in the style of Todd McFarlane.” Stuff like that. The more offbeat the better!

Enjoy!

I’ll put them in alphabetical order based on the name of the Twitter user who made the suggestion.
