The Line it is Drawn #167 – Thanksgiving Leftovers!

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!

This is a special surprise holiday edition of the Line it is Drawn. This week, in honor of Thanksgiving “leftovers,” our artists are finishing pieces that they never got a chance to finish during weeks where they had to miss the column in the past. Also, since they are finishing old pieces rather than doing new ones, this gave them some extra down time for Thanksgiving. They’ve all made their choices for next week’s topic based on your suggestions last week.

Enjoy!

I’ll put them in alphabetical order based on the name of the Twitter user who made the suggestion (although this week I made an error in the order)

First up, Thea Rodgers decided to do a special Thanksgiving/Hanukkah piece just for this week.

Cynthia “Thea” Rodgers drew this one. Her website is here. Amanda loves to eat turkey ’cause it’s good. Love to eat turkey, like a good Amanda should. Once you’ve finished stuffing turkey into your gourd, check out Amanda’s website here.

What happened to last weeks prompts?

That’s all explained at the top. Fun batch of assorted whatzits, y’all!

the ghost rider piece is the best.
I almost choked from laughing.

Well, he is full of very useful devices, and I doubt he thinks she’s too old for him, but…

This may be the one fleshy one that Aaron should just steer clear of, right, Sean?

Fun piece by Thea and Amanda — I almost didn’t recognize Pietro, as he was smiling.

Nice touch with the electrodes on Cap’s wrists as well as neck, Nick; and thanks for finishing it!

Wow, I know so few of the characters, but I like the way Mic? worked the style into the classic cover homage. I always found Dragon Ball Z to be irritating, so it’s not bad that Gyoku(?) is the one already dead.

If GR thinks HE has a penance stare, wait until the kid finds out that all the ice cream has melted. Johnny is gonna repent everything he ever did!

I gotta catch up on my Star Wars, I guess; why would Leia push away someone trying to rescue her? Or am I misreading the dynamic? (Or maybe Boba Fett is just irresistible to women? lol)

Chaz and TMBG is almost a perfect blend — and the Big Red Cheese as Mickey Mouse! Big smiles all around.

Love the Thanksgiving piece. And the Ghost Rider ice cream truck is hilarious. :-)

Never really figured the Magneto family for Jewish, but I guess it makes sense. I for some reason thought they were Gypsies. Oh well. This is fun stuff, though.

Magneto Jewish but Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver aren’t. They were adopted by Roma gypsies and their mother was Roma so they are Roma.

@P.Boz
You didn’t know that Magneto is Jewish?!I find it weird that someone doesn’t know that… It’s important part of his backstory that he’s a Jew who spent his childhood in concentration camps! It’s pretty much the main reason why he has always opposed X-Men’s view of peaceful co-existence between humans and mutants, it’s his main motivation! O.o

@becca, no need to catch up on your Star Wars, but do it on your Rocketeer! That’s Betty, Cliff’s gilrfriend, and she’s quite fickle… althought I think this time she’s only worried about him…

Well, Betty needs to learn that the size of a man’s .. armament .. isn’t relative to anything else, but we will let her find out what Boba is compensating for….

Well, it’s been his main motivation ever since that particular retcon was introduced in the early 80s. Before that, he was just evil. :)

No, Pietro and Wanda aren’t necessarily Jewish — but what, you have a problem with them sitting down for a nice meal with their father?

Well it WAS nice, until Wanda inadvertently turned all the gelt into manhole covers…

Ya know…I’ve read a lot of X-Men over the years but I also have a memory like a sieve. It’s entirely possible the Jewish thing came up and I just plain forgot about it. I haven’t read an X-comic printed over the last ten years, however. I just figured the info came up recently.

Important to note: Nazis didn’t just put Jewish people in concentration camps. Gypsies, like I figured Magneto for, were also placed in them along with several other people the Nazis didn’t like. It ain’t a stretch for young Magneto to be in there for any particular reason, really.

Up until the recent Magneto Testament mini-series, Marvel never explicitly stated Magneto was Jewish.

Question is… can Ghost Rider handle Bart Simpson? Good one Sean… But if he gets in trouble he can always call on the “Scarecrow and Mrs. King” team of Machine Man and X-23 (can we please give her a superhero name already???) =)

As an Anime Fan, I LOVE The Shonen League… Thx Mic…. and as a Death Note fan, it still kills me that I never got a resolution to the chess match…lol

Stellar Job on the Thanksgiving/Hanukkah piece Lasses…. No chances of the Yancy Street Gang interrupting that huh?

Not the biggest Rocketeer fan but this got me intrigued for a once off crossover with Boba Fett Axel…

Who knew Mr Mind could handle bones? Chaz knew…

Gee thx Nick, now I’ll have nightmares of a Captain America Frankenstein…..

Hope you folks enjoyed your family days!
