The Line It Is Drawn #42 – Presenting Dark Horse Team-Up/Mash-Ups!

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, 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, May 26th).

Next week’s theme is…

Caanan reminded me that I somehow managed to forget to feature this topic, which is a no-brainer. The topic is – mash-up comic book characters with a famous movie poster.

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

Team-up or mash-up two (or more) Dark Horse Comics characters


No Daniel, George or Sean this week. So besides the four pieces from this week, I’ll work in a couple of interesting mash-ups of Dark Horse characters with characters from other comic book companies that Nick and Sean did, so you’ll still get six pieces this week!

B_Granderson suggested:

fear agent versus aliens

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

B_Granderson also suggested:

beasts of burden/usagi yojimbo

Now on to the bonus stuff!!

First off, this following piece appeared originally in our December 2010 Reader Art Gallery, but this is the first time you’ll see it here. It is a beautiful piece, and it certainly played a big role in me asking Sean McFarland to contribute to The Line It Is Drawn. It is an amalgamation of Cerebus and Hellboy…

Here is Sean’s website.

Next, Nick Perks (whose website is here) sent me in this Powers mash-up with the characters of Dark Horse Comics that he did awhile back…

Great stuff, guys!

Thanks so much to our suggestion givers and our awesome artists! Go make suggestions for next week! I am sure that you have some great ideas for such a broad topic! I want to see at least 100 suggestions for the guys tomorrow!
