Line it is Drawn: European Comic Team-Ups!

Welcome to Line it is Drawn, our weekly gallery of amazing art by our great collection of artistic talent, all working from your suggestions!

So every week, I ask a question here. You reply to it on the CSBG Twitter page (just write @csbg with your reply), our artists will each pick one of your suggestions and I will post their drawings based on your suggestions here every week. So every week you will have a new question and you will see the choices picked from the previous week.

To qualify, you have to be following @csbg when you reply – so go follow us and then give your answer to the following question/challenge (All suggestions due by noon Pacific Saturday – we’re being delayed a bit due to San Diego Comic Con, so we’ll extend the suggestion deadline accordingly).

The topic for the next Line is…

In honor of the release of Atomic Blonde, name a badass comic book female character and our artists will draw them in an homage to SOME sort of badass moment in pop culture history (whatever they feel like)

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

In honor of the release of Valerian, team up American comic book characters with a famous European comic book character!


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

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

Here’s Axel’s schedule for San Diego Comic Con this weekend:

This time I’ll be there Thursday to Saturday (possibly a bit on Wednesday and Sunday) at the Comicraft / Elephantmen booth #2106, in front of DC. Besides all the Elephantmen stuff, I’ll bring original art, prints, and will be doing commissions.

I’ll have a special signing of The Thing Artbook on Friday 5:00 PM at the Aspen Comics booth #2320

As usual, followers of The Line get an extra nice sketch.
