The Line It Is Drawn #11 - Comic Book Characters/Musicals Mash-Up

Let's get the standard stuff out of the way.

You should 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, Chad Nevett, Kelly Thompson, Sonia Harris Danielle Leigh, Melinda Beasi and Michelle Smith!

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. As an incentive to follow us, if we reach 2,000 followers, I'll do an extra edition of Comic Book Legends Revealed the week we hit 2,000. At 3,000 followers, I will do another Month of Greatest Stories Ever Told!

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 SIX 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 top six choices from the previous week.

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 11:59 PM Eastern on Thursday, October 14th):

This week's topic is courtesy of our own Caanan Gall, who suggested we do a comic book character/video game character team-up/mash-up. So, Sonic the Hedgehog racing the Flash, stuff like that.

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

Mash-up a comic book character with a famous musical, either a Broadway musical or a movie musical (Namor and Sue Storm in The King and I, stuff like that).

NOTE: Before I go on, the deadline to be featured in the October 2010 Reader Art Gallery is 6pm Eastern this Thursday, October 14th. So if you were planning on entering a piece, send it to me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com. Again, it could be on any topic featured in the September editions of The Line It Is Drawn.


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