The Line it is Drawn #150 – Comic Book 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, Sonia Harris, Melissa K. and Ken H.
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 3pm Pacific Friday).
The topic is…
Ostensibly because of the 10th anniversary of the Teen Titans cartoon and of Geoff Johns’ Teen Titans #1, but really just because Bill Walko wants the theme to be this, the theme this week is the Teen Titans! Mash-up any era of Teen Titans with ANYthing – a movie (Teen Titans in the Hangover), another comic book (the Teen Titans as the cast of Saga), a TV show (the Teen Titans as the cast from Saved by the Bell), a novel (Teen Titans in Pride and Prejudice), a video game (Teen Titans in Mortal Kombat), whatever you’d like! Go nuts!
Read on for the sketches that came about courtesy of the last question/challenge!
A return of one of our regular bits! Comic cover homages! Name a comic book character you’d like to appear in an homage to a classic comic book cover!
I’ll put them in alphabetical order based on the name of the Twitter user who made the suggestion.
