The Line it is Drawn #153 – Anthropomorphic Superhero Week!

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…

With the recent announcement that Ben Affleck will be playing Batman in the next Batman movie, this week’s theme will be really odd superhero movie casting. Suggest an odd actor or celebrity for a role in a superhero film as either a superhero or a supervillain. Cher as Batman, Zach Galifianakis as the Joker, that sort of thing.

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

Anthropomorphize ‘em! Name a comic book character and an animal that you’d like to see them anthropomorphized as (a la Spider-Ham being Spider-Man anthropomorphized as a pig)


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

The Fantastic Furballs

Nick Perks is the artist for this one. Here is his website.



Hellboy as a kitten

Axel Medellin drew this one. His website is here.



Venom as a octopus

Nelson Flores did the art for this one.



The Avengers as a flock of pigeons.

Paul Hostetler did the art for this one. Here is his website.



Thanos as a cute and evil kitty cat.

Cynthia “Thea” Rodgers drew this one. Her website is here. Magic and mystery are part of her history, along with the secret of gummiberry juice. Her legend is growing, she takes pride in knowing, she’ll fight for what’s right in whatever she does – Amanda Rodgers, coloring here and there and everywhere, high coloring that’s beyond compare, she is Amanda Rodgers. Check out her website here.



Wonder Woman as a cheetah

Xum Yukinori drew this one. Here is his website.



Lionheart as a Lion, Captain Britain as a lion and Union Jack as a bulldog

Steve Howard is the artist for this one. Here is his website.


Nick Perks also gave a shot at one of the trio of suggestions….


Union Jack as a bulldog

Again, here is Nick’s website.



a Raccoon as Batman

Sean McFarland is the artist for this one. Here is his website.


Good stuff, folks!

Okay, everyone, send in suggestions for next week’s theme!


I love Xum’s Red Sharknado corner piece. Brilliant!

The funniest thing about that Wonder Woman cover is that it seems entirely plausible for a Silver Age story.

Great work, guys! Love looking at these and showing everyone in the office every Friday morning. However, I am SOOOOO over cats.

So Hellboy becomes…Hellcat?

“HellKitten” with the day.

@Robert Eddleman: Yeah, I’m surprised that actually didn’t happen at some point.

WOOOO!!! TWO versions of a suggestion!!

both brilliant. love the Union Jack ‘dog’s bollocks’ gag. nice work guys!

Dogs Bollocks. My co-worker has a beer tap of that

some stupid japanese name

The hit counter is going to explode when the furries catch wind of this.
Well played Mr. Cronin, well played.

Thanos just became my favourite villain. He’s “aweful”

Being over cats?! That’s like being over breathing! (Especially when it involves Hellkitten).

@Robert Eddleman: I second that notion, and would add in early Bronze Age as well (since the cover style matches some late 70s/early 80s books).

But seriously folks: who can’t wait to see… RED SHARKNADO?!?

Nice job this week guys! Axel takes it for me this week, this is my most favorite piece of his that I’ve ever seen.

Have no idea what the suggestions are going to be like this week, but it’s going to be an interesting weekend for me. Ben affeck? WTF???

I don’t do Twitter (or Facebook, or…), so this suggestion may not be considered—and perhaps that’s for the best, since it does feel a little sacrilegious, but here goes:

Mister Rogers as the Punisher. (Or Lobo, or Ambush Bug, or Deadpool, or any other anti-hero.)

While I’m at it, how about Lindsay Lohan as Oracle?

Okay, I’ll stop now…

That WW story mustve happened at some point.
Someone send that picture to Grant Morrison.

The Avengers win it this week for me.

You’ve really pleased some furries this day.

I award first equal to everybody. Great suggestions and fantastic work!

Fantastic work! Cracked up at several of them!

my god that was awesome

Still laughing at the Fantastic Furries and awww-ing over HellKitten!

Surprising that in a sea full of kitties, I vote for the pigeons. Oh, those pigeons.
