The Line it is Drawn #99 – Era-Displaced Comic Book Characters!

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 for #100, which will be out TWO weeks from now instead of next week (I Figured it would be nice to give our artists a break before we hit triple digits) is…

Very simply, tell us your favorite mash-ups, team-ups and re-imagined characters from our first 99 installments of The Line it is Drawn that you’d like to see given another spin! Boba Fett/Deadpool, the Muppet Lantern Corps, Captain America in Caitlin Fairchild’s outfit, etc. Here is the archive of the first 99 installments to give you some inspiration.

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

Era-displaced comic book characters!! Imagine if the Superman from 1938 replaced 2012 Superman. Or 2012 Superman replacing 1938 Superman. Or 1939 Batman replacing 2012 Batman. Or 1955 Batman replacing 2012 Batman. Give us ideas for era-displaced comic book characters. What if 2010 Roy Harper replaced the Roy Harper in a 1966 Teen Titans story? What if 2012 Iron Man replaced the Iron Man from a 1963 Avengers comic? Or 1963 Iron Man replacing Iron Man in a 2012 Avengers comic? And so on and so forth!

Enjoy!

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