The Line It Is Drawn #34 - Comic Book Characters/Oscar-Winning Films Mash-Ups!

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, 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 3,000 followers, I'll either do another extra edition of Comic Book Legends Revealed the week we hit 3,000 or I will do another Month of Greatest Stories Ever Told (your choice)!

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 Pacific, Thursday, March 31st).

Next week's theme is...

Courtesy of our own Caanan Grall, "Comic Book Character Spokespersons." You simply pick a product and the comic book character you'd like to see as a spokesperson for that product. Green Lantern/Energizer Bunny, Flash/Nike, you get the drift.

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

Mash-up comic book characters with films that won the Academy Award for Best Picture!


No George this week, so Sean McFarland will fill-in! Be sure to stop by tomorrow where I debut a brand-new Sean piece that we didn't have room for last week! Also, later on Thursday I'll have a brand-new bonus piece from Chaz!

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