The Line it is Drawn #95 – Ray Bradbury Tribute: Comic Characters in Science Fiction Stories

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…

In honor of John Trumbull’s appearance this weekend at the Six Seasons and a Movie Art Show (more info here), team-up or mash-up comic book characters with characters from the TV series Community

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

In honor of the late Ray Bradbury, team-up a comic book character from a character from a science fiction novel or short story (any science fiction novel or story, not just one by Bradbury). NOTE: A novel or short story – not from other media. Thanks to Axel Medellin for the suggestion.

By the way, speaking of Ray Bradbury, check out this one guy’s take on the best EC Comic adaptations of Barbury’s short stories.

Enjoy!

I’ll put them in alphabetical order based on the name of the Twitter user who made the suggestion (although I split up two pieces this week since they seemed weird going back to back).

All copyright and trademarks of the following characters are held by their respective owners!

ArghantBigAxe suggested:

Kitty Pryde in “The Dragonriders of Pern”

Cynthia “Thea” Rodgers drew this one. Her website is here. Did you know that Thea had one of her Line it is Drawn drawings appear in last month’s Redbook? Well, if you didn’t, she did! And it was awesome (it was from the “Male Superheroes See How the Other Side Lives” week).

Daniel Cox drew this one. Here is his website. Daniel, by the way, is doing a campaign to raise money for an independent animated film he is trying to produce. It looks awesome. I’ve already donated. You should, too! You can check Daniel’s campaign out here.


Great work, folks!
