The Line it is Drawn #289 - Classic DC Comics Cover Homages!

Welcome to our weekly gallery of amazing art by our great collection of artistic talent, all working from YOUR suggestions!

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, Bill Reed, Greg Burgas and Sonia Harris

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 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. 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 3pm Pacific Friday).

The topic for the next Line is...

In honor of Captain America: Civil War, suggest two superheroes that you'd like to see fight each other.

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

In honor of our own Xum Yukinori, we're doing classic DC Comics Cover Homages! Suggest a comic book character and a famous DC Comics cover.


I'll put them in alphabetical order based on the name of the Twitter user who made the suggestion (with one exception).

As I told you folks last week, our longtime Line it is Drawn artist, Xum Yukinori went into the hospital last week with stroke-like symptoms. It turned out that he had three tumors pressing on his spinal cord. The tumors were operated on and removed, and luckily they were not malignant tumors. However, Xum is still dealing with partial paralysis on the left side of his body and a back brace (due to the, you know, surgery on his spine). We're all hoping for the best for him going forward and for this week, we figured we'd honor him through homages to classic DC Comics covers, a favorite topic for Xum, as I'm sure all longtime Line it is Drawn readers know already.

This one was drawn by David Branstetter as a tribute to Xum, with Action Comics #252 now featuring Professor Xum and David's Strawman character. Here is David's website.
