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 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 choices picked 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 6:00 AM Pacific, Friday, March 9th).

The topic is…

In honor of Ralph McQuarrie, the concept artist for Star Wars who passed away a few days ago, this will be a Star Wars week. Team-up or mash-up Star Wars characters with comic book characters!

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

Comic book characters playing sports! Batman shooting hoops, Captain America throwing a touchdown pass, etc.

Enjoy!

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