The Line it is Drawn #6 – Comic Book Character/Sitcom Mash-Ups

by  in Comic News Comment

Let’s get the standard stuff out of the way.

You should 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, 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. Plus, if we reach 2,000 followers, I’ll do an extra edition of Comic Book Legends Revealed the week we hit 2,000. At 3,000 followers, I will 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 11:59 PM Eastern on Thursday, September 9th):

This week’s topic is pretty simple – team up a comic book character with a notable historical figure (Wolverine and Theodore Roosevelt fighting in the Spanish-American War, stuff like that).

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

Mash-up comic book character(s) with a sitcom from the past or present (Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn as Laverne and Shirley, stuff like that).

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!

Okay, so I didn’t know that Twitter got rid of the replies after a week. So I lost the names of the followers who gave three of the six suggestions. Feel free to write in to get your due credit!
