Line it is Drawn: 4 Panel/8 Word Comic Book Origins!

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 11:59pm Pacific Friday).

The topic for the next Line is...
