The Line It Is Drawn #63 - Comic Book Super Bands!!!

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, Michelle Smith, Bill Reed and Scott!

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 SEVEN 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. 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 7:00 AM Pacific, Friday, October 28th).

Next week's theme is...

Team-up or mash-up a comic book character with a Walt Disney character (as Caanan correctly pointed out to me the other day, we did strictly Marvel/Disney mash-ups, but now let's do a broader Disney mash-up!

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

Name four comic book characters. Our artists will then put those characters in a band. Our artists will decide what kind of band the characters will be in.


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!

No George this week, so Sean will fill-in!
