The Line it is Drawn #92 – Conan Tribute to Ernie Chan

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 this Friday).

The topic is…

After having such a constrictive theme the last three weeks (although well worth it to honor three great artists), I figured I’d just let our artists have a lot more freedom this week. Therefore, the topic is team-up two comic book characters from different companies. Just name two characters and our artists can go nuts with how the two characters will team-up.

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

In honor of the late Ernie Chan (and, to a certain extent, the late Tony DeZuniga), come up with ideas for drawings starring a character they are well known for working on, Conan the Barbarian. Team-ups, mash-ups with films, TV shows, paintings, video games, Conan doing mundane tasks, whatever you’d like!

Enjoy!

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