The Line It Is Drawn #22 - New Year's Resolutions

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, 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!

Welcome back, folks! We took a break over the holidays, but now we've returned!

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 8:00 PM Eastern on Saturday, January 8th - I want to get us back on schedule as soon as possible, hence the short amount of time).

The topic is - anthropomorphism! Simply come up with a comic book character and an animal, then our artists will draw a piece featuring that animal as that comic book character (to wit, a cat as Batman, a dog as Spider-Man, etc. etc. etc.)

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

Come up with a New Year's resolution for a comic book character, then our artists will draw that character dealing with their resolution


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!

This was the B_Granderson and BigMike20X6 show this week! They submitted all six of the suggestions, including one suggestion that they actually BOTH suggested (which is really quite odd)!!

Here are BigMike20X6's...

Ghost Rider resolves to go green. Trades in his motorcycle for a mountain bike.

Caanan Grall is the artist for this one. Here is his website

Deadpool misunderstands the question and claims his resolution is 1080p

Chaz Folgar is the artist for this one. Here is his website.

Galactus resolves to be more mindful of his diet

Daniel Irizarri is the artist for this one. Here is his website.

Now, the shared suggestion was as follows (B_Granderson's was posted first, so I'll show you his)...

batman resolving to not be so grim and gritty (maybe a pastel colored batman in 2011?)

Nick Perks is the artist for this one. Here is his website.

I think Nick got the point across beautifully with just the expression on Bruce's face, but Nick also did one with captions, in case you'd like to see that one, too. You can see it here.

Here are B_Granderson's other two suggestions...

thor resolving to next time just smack loki before he tries to trick him with some sort of scheme.

Rafael Desquitado is the artist for this one. Here is his website.

psylocke resolving not to say "focused totality of my powers" in 2011

Michael Magtanong is the artist for this one. Here is his website.

BigMike20X6 ALSO suggested:

Watcher resolves to watch less and read more.

George Zapata is the artist for this one. Here is his website.

Thanks to our artists and the suggestion-givers! Great job by everyone!

NOTE: If you wish to participate in the January Reader Art Gallery, I think I'll push it back a few days this timr around, because I'm sure the holidays have delayed people a bit. So if you wish to participate, please send in your artwork (based on any of the previous The Line It Is Drawn topics, although I'd prefer you choose ones from December) to me at bcronin@comicbookresources.com by 6pm Eastern time on Monday, January 17th!
