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 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 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 9:00 AM Pacific this Friday).

The topic is…

In honor of Disney buying Lucasfilm, suggest team-ups and/or mash-ups of Star Wars characters and Disney characters.

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

It’s Halloween time! Mash-up non-horror comic book characters inside of famous horror stories! Films, movies, TV series, whatever! It’s a perfect time for the 113th edition of Line it is Drawn!

Enjoy!

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

Stunning work this week, everybody! Very well done! Especially considering so many of our artists live on the East Coast and had to deal with black outs and the like!

Okay, folks, go make suggestions for next week now! And have a Happy Halloween!

The B.P.R.D. one is really well drawn.

Some really good ones this week. Bill really went all out, and Thea’s piece is amazing. And is that a shoggoth in Paul’s piece?

Either that or he’s just happy to see you.

you know what? This may be a weird conclusion to come to after looking at all this stuff, but I’d totally buy a Trumbull drawn Aquaman series – why is this not a thing?!

But props to everyone, hell of job everybody.

Hey, I don’t find that a weird conclusion at all. Maybe after Ardian Syaf leaves the book… :)

That Deadman is excellent.

That BPRD cover is amazing.

Great stuff as always.

Funny thing on the Jay Garrick one: He did fight a mummy once…sort of.

Man, as usual, always such good stuff. I can never pick a favorite any more!

Special props to Thea for actually spelling Charles Schulz correctly. You wouldn’t believe how many times I see it with a t in there!

with my spelling record I’d probably stick a tt in there :)

a very strong week by all this week :)

The Shadow did not start as comic book property.

For “DISNEY” are you meaning only DISNEY characters or is MARVEL and MUPPETS allowed too

PB210, this is all for fun. Don’t worry about who started as what, just enjoy the artists’ hard work.

The Shadow did not start as comic book property.

No, but he has a long history in comics and is currently being published as a comic book. Good enough for me. Besides, why complain when Nick Perks draws him so beautifully? :)

Also, the Great Pumpkin is not a horror story, so it should not count under the rules of the feature.

C’mon, guys, don’t give us this beautiful artwork if you can’t follow the damn rules!!!

;)

Travis, if you cannot see the inherent horror of a Pumpkin God that year after year crushes the spirit of his one devout follower…. ;)

There are some great entries this week, but Trumbell’s takes the cake. It isn’t just a great mash up, it’s a cover concept/execution that would get me to buy the book even if I had no idea who Aquaman and the creature were.

Annihilus what you did last summer is superb wordplay. i lol’ed

Thanks, Henk. :)

That Great Pumpkin design is eerily similar to the drawing I made last year..

Is it just me or…

Oh-kay, favs for this round:
-Flash vs. Mummy
-Aquaman vs. Creature
-Superman vs. Dracula
-X-Men Rocky Horror Picture Show
And now comes a confession: I have NEVER seen The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and people have griped me about it. I do hope to see it one day.

May be just me, but you ain’t missing much if you ain’t seen Rocky Horror. To be fair to the film, however, it’s not its fault that I don’t like musicals.

As for the art, it’s like all of you have perfected the mash-up. It’s become really difficult to find stuff that I don’t like from week to week. Not that I’m looking to criticize, anyway.

“…or should I say, Professor VON Xavier?”

Great round this week, though X-men/RHPS-mashup was the favorite (and I’m not even that much of a fan of RHPS, it’s a good film to watch once but only some segments support rewatching).

Both ‘Great Pumpkin’-Pics are my favorites (the ‘Rocky Horror’-Pin-Up is great, too), but Cynthia hits the ball right out of the park. Fantastic Pic !

I love Snoopy’s silhouette. Against the moon. Just like Lobster Johnson.

Terrific work this week! :-)

Finished & colored “Four Freedoms Plaza Of Horror” piece here:

http://brendantobin.blogspot.com/2012/10/happy-halloween.html

Thanks. Nice work, everyone.

They’re all amazing, but The Shadow is my fav for the week. Wow. Gorgeous piece!

FYI, that is TOTALLY the Thing. I just made it purple.

Big purple monsters are cool.

OMG!! The X-Babies one is sooooooooo fucking cute!!!

Don’t bother, Acer. Sure, it’s a part of American culture, but that doesn’t make it a good flick. I’ve never enjoyed it. Of course, that’s just me.

Loving the Lovecraft love this week. (Yes, I just did that.)

Next time Superman goes up against a vampire, he probably should just fry it from a distance with his heat vision. Not as dramatic, sure, but efficient.

In the Watchmen one, isn’t that supposed to be the “Thing” from the John Carpenter movie? After all, they ARE in Antarctica, when Rorschach dies, and the monster would probably not pass up the free dinner..

On Axel’s Scrooge art, I am imagining the subtext to be that the Predators stole Scrooge’s Number One Dime. The Predators will not be getting out alive.

Brendan Tobin should be getting a call from Bongo any second now.

Could he submit thiis to http://www.shadowsanctum.net or http://www.theshadowsanctum.net?

I have to note that Star Wars has a stronger presence in supermarkets, convenience store spinner racks, bookstores, etc. in comic books than the Shadow in the last forty years, so if someone treats the Shadow as a comic book character, then Star Wars would have to count, too. Has anyone ever done a Line is Draw with Star Wars personnages?

PB210, there have been 2 Star Wars themed TLiiDs.

Archive is your friend.

I can usually narrow these down to one favorite, but not this time.

For the first time ever, you wonderful artists, you are ALL my favorite!

(Until next week, anyway. . . .)

It’s worse than that, Frank. The Predators owe Scrooge money.

Love the BPRD cover. I can see Charlie Brown teaming up with them, if only to keep Linus from half-freezing to death in the pumpkin patch every Halloween. :-)
