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, Michelle Smith, Bill Reed and Scott!

I update 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.

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. Here is an archive of all the previous editions of The Line It Is Drawn!

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 8:00 AM Pacific, Friday, September 2nd).

Next week’s theme is…

Supervillain Team-Up! Pick any two supervillains who have never teamed up before and have them face off against any comic book good guy you like! Lex Luthor and the Red Skull against Darkwing Duck? Go for it!

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

Pick a comic book character and place him/her/them into an homage of a famous comic book cover! Deadpool re-creating Wolverine #1 with a Swiss Army Knife, stuff like that.

Enjoy!

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

Really amazing stuff this week, people! It is amazing to look back at our first cover homage theme and compare your work from then until now. It is great to see all the improvement (over what were great drawings to begin with!). Thanks to the suggestion-givers! Now go make suggestions for next week’s topic!
