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 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, April 6th).

The topic is…

In honor of this week’s Avengers vs. X-Men, this week’s topic is just that, Avengers vs. X-Men…at anything BUT just outright brawling. Pick an Avenger then pick an X-Men and then pick something for them to compete it (chess, checkers, skiing, staring contest, arm wrestling, etc.)

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

Dream casting! Pick a famous actor that you’d like to see portray a comic book character and our artists will draw said actor/actress as that character. What would a Clark Gable Superman look like? Or a Michael Caine John Constantine? Stuff like that

Enjoy!

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

(Psssssssst….Nick Perks drew up a riff on the Shatner as GL bit, too, just not intended as being part of this feature. Just a practice piece, of sorts. Would you all like to see it? If enough of you want to see it, I’m sure Nick will be forced to let me show it you all.)

Great work, everyone! Okay, folks, go tweet us your suggestions!
