The Line it is Drawn #9 – Comic Book Characters and Literary Characters

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 (I also do original content on our Twitter account). 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 30th):

This week’s topic is – place a notable comic book character in a genre different from their normal genre (for example, stuff like Green Lantern Noir or Romance Wolverine)

Read on for the four (I’m afraid due to some scheduling pile-ups, it is just four artists this week) sketches that came about courtesy of the last question/challenge:

Either team-up or mash-up a comic book character with a famous character from prose literature. Batman and Captain Ahab, stuff like that).

Enjoy!
