Loved the last 2.

Oh my god, these are great. Snake n Bacon and Donald Duck are my favorites this week, with Sharknado and Kenny right up there too, but that’s some excellent work all around.

Trouble II, so wrong, yet so good.

Can someone explain to me why Wolverine & Nightcrawler is at all relevant or interesting?

Because we miss Nightcrawler.

Can’t ever unsee Wolverine with Aunt May.

Very good!

Have long since tired of Wolverine, but these were all excellent and fresh. Except the one with Nightcrawler for obvious reasons.

MonikerNV: Because they used to be buds but now Nightcrawler is DEAAAD!

Uh, I drew Wolverine and Nightcrawler cuz I like Wolverine and Nightcrawler. It’s really nothing more than that. Not everything has to be an elaborate mash-up or homage every single week.

(People are aware this is free entertainment, right?)

On a lighter note, there’s a lot of awesome pieces this week! I LOL’ed at TROUBLE II (Chaz!). Daniel’s Sharknado piece is awesome. And Xum’s SUPERFRIENDS homage is super fun.

That Sharknado piece is gorgeous. I would LOVE to have that hanging in my house!

Absolutely loved the Wolverine and Raphael piece. My heart is happy because Nightcrawler is about to come back to life.

I have not bought a Wolverine comic in a VERY long time, but I would buy the hell out of each and every one of these.

And the Nightcrawler/Wolverine pic was a great piece!

umm, in reading the credits, I wish Snooki had been featured in the wolverine and kenny poster. Good job everyone.

Snake n’ Bacon n’ Logan was hilarious. I’ve never even read Snake n’ Bacon and that was awesome.

Snake n’ Bacon n’ Logan was hilarious. I’ve never even read Snake n’ Bacon and that was awesome.

Get on that! Michael Kupperman’s Tales Designed to Thrizzle is amazing! And Snake ‘n’ Bacon are not even the best characters from it!

All were great, but Superfriends for the win. Perfect.

I didn’t even know Snake n’ Bacon were from “Tales Designed to Thrizzle”. I only knew of them from their Adult Swim produced webshorts.

Also, I know I give universal praise most every week, but seriously, this week was just so jam-packed with amazing work. Also, add me to the list of people who got a huge nostalgic thrill from just plain ol’ simple Wolverine and Nightcrawler bein’ buddies again.

Googling Snake N’ Bacon. Thank you brilliant internet!

These were all awesome. Donald I think took it home, but these were all great pieces!

Wolverine vs Sharknado wins the internets.
Also yay for Me-Mow!~

Some great entries this week, as usual. The SUPERFRIENDS homage made me laugh out loud. :)

Thanks for the shout outs buttler, Bill, MikeTheRed (happy to send you a print if you want one), and BigMike.

Brendan: Haha — somehow, you made that work!
Sean: Nailed the style and “claws to the eyes!” — ouch.
Steve: Lovely drawing.
Nick: Heh…love it.
Axel: boobyliscious, as always.
Xum: “1978 Broadcast Standards and Practices” — haha. I like the way you minimised the cross-hatching to give it that Toth style.
Nelson: lovely watercolours!
Chaz: ah, how I’ve missed your crazy brain, brother. Oh poop!
Bill: Great! Always enjoy seeing your hand drawn stuff.
Thea: You both captured the AT style perfectly.
Josh: Love it..summed up both personalities perfectly.
Robert: Fab style and use of sepia and aged paper for the 1880s.
Marco: Lovely. I wonder if Hugh would want this to happen?
Cox: What the hell are you doing here? Didn’t you retire?

Thanks for the guest spot Brian!

The Sharknado piece is TOO funny. And I like the Wolverine/Nightcrawler piece, too, I always liked Nightcrawler, he was cool. :-)

Bah, ever since you moved these to Friday instead of Thursday, I always somehow wind up missing not just the art, but the nomination period for next week! I had such a good habit going of checking on Thursdays but somehow on Fridays it just slips my mind completely.

Aside from that personal gripe, you’ve got a bunch of great pieces, despite being Wolverine-focused (which, I know, was the theme).

The best to me are : “Wolverine and Kenny : Die Hard 2″ by Marcus Alfonso and “Wolverine and Hit-Girl” by Steve Howard. Both these guys should be doing professional work based on these pieces alone.

And “The Superfriends Meet Wolverine” is so damn brilliantly clever and funny.

First team up in a while with no Deadpool. Oh well, great job nonetheless.

[…] The Line it is Drawn #149 – Wolverine Team-Ups! (goodcomics.comicbookresources.com) […]

Excellent work this week. My favorite three are Xum Yukinori, Josh Gowdy, and Robert Rath.

[…] at Comic Book Resources, they have a weekly contest where people write in what they want to see, and then artists deliver. […]
