The Line it is Drawn #157 – Celebrating 50 Years of the Avengers and X-Men!

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…

In honor of the final episode, which will be airing next week, this week mash-up comic book characters with characters from Breaking Bad!

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

A + X! In honor of the Avengers and X-Men 50th Anniversaries, name a member of the Avengers anda member of the X-Men (not the same person) and our artists will draw them teaming up (our artists will have the freedom of drawing whatever they want beyond the basic concept of “Character X and Character Y team-up”).


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

Great stuff everyone!

Okay, folks, tweet us suggestions for next week!


Brilliant work all around. I’ll leave proper commentary in the morning, but I have to give kudos to Robert for the way he put “A V X” in there…

Xum’s double-Warbird is Silver Age hilarity at it’s finest. Why can’t we get more ridiculous composite characters like that these days? (I did like Compound Hulk a few years ago…)

And once again Xum draws the cover to a comic I would love to read.

I cannot believe that the Dazzler team-up never actually happened! (The art in the Wasp/Lockheed was nice, but I don’t think the wording was quite right.)

Thor/Storm… so so pretty

the wasp/Lockhead one..sooooooooo many innuendos.

Lockheed cosplaying as a Tribble? I nearly fell out of my chair laughing. Loved Forge and Jocasta’s ‘awkward moment’ and the spinning ‘Amazing Friends’ center label as well.

i want a Walko drawn SMAHAF comic and i want it NOW!

i also love DP/IM.

All my suggestions this week will be, essentially, “Bob Phantom and that guy with the drugs.”

I should watch more TV.

These are brilliant. Exceptionally well done, folks!

Also, hooray, two of my suggestions used this week! I too would absolutely love to read Xum’s Warbird/Warbird comic, and kudos to Bill for slyly combining the Amazing Friends suggestions.

And I love that Brendan dug up the Hypno-Hustler for his piece. So perfect.

Let me tell ya, it is a wonderful feeling when your suggestion is chosen!

A little disappointed that I didn’t get any suggestions used this week but hot damn Brendan. You win the prize with Hypno Hustler.

Love it. Fantastic work all! :-)

Hulk/Wolverine appearing together? Now there’s a concept that’s never been used before!

I’m so sorry I missed the anal sex joke memo this week…

Oh, come on, Steve! Really jerky puns!

John, you probably dropped the memo on the floor. Bend over and pick it up!

Red shirt Kitty Pryde is hot.

And Deadpool by Marco! We…we’ve missed you so!

Excellent work as usual by everyone.

Lockheed -as- Tribble wins this one.
2nd place to Deadpool’s imitation repulsor ray.

How has no-one mentioned Quentin Quire as Gob Bluth?! I was giggling like a maniac.

I totally didn’t notice any GOB resemblance… until just now. You genius.
