The Line it is Drawn #179 – Saturday Morning Cartoons, Comic Book Style!


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…

Our own David Branstetter has this ambitious topic idea – comic book characters mashed-up with popular internet memes! Kitty Pryde in “Gerseberms / Mah fravrit berks,” Monet St. Croix is not impressed, stuff like that

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

Comic book characters teamed-up or mashed-up with Saturday Morning cartoons!

Great work, everyone! Welcome, Mathieu!!


Everyone did a great job, and I especially love that gorgeous Space Ghost/Galactus drawing. The “Do Not Aim Towards Face” tagline on Deadpool and “Aquasnork” are also great touches.

I would buy a comic of the Monkey League if they were fighting Mojo Jojo

Deadpool Joe and Space Ghost FTW

Heh, nice suggestion for the Deapdool / GI JOE cover … There was even a GI JOE themed cover for the regular series, during the Christopher Priest run ( http://www.comixology.fr/Deadpool-Vol-2-42/digital-comic/36365 ) . It was the ” ‘Nuff Said” themed episode .

When I am a teenager guy, I use to read comic books because I like superhuman but that time comic books not a realistic one. Now comic books much more real and when its related to Ghost and superhuman my affection much more higher to read that one.

Awesome job, everyone!

But Daaaaaaamn, Derek Langille. That’s an inspired Jonny Quest/Hellboy.

Props to Marco for carrying the Deadpool/GI JOE joke to hilarious heights with the package callouts!

FANTASTIC work all around guys! Loved Lookee’s discovery. Deadpool’s REAL? AMERICAN? HERO? hilarious. Love the line work on Aquasnorks! The attention to detail on the Hellboy piece is astounding. Space Ghost is gorgeous…. I could go on and on.

I needed this, great job everyone. Now if only some of these would debut tomorrow morning!

Man, I love ALL of these, but the Jonny Quest and Space Ghost ones, I love just a little bit more. I adored those cartoons (and yes, I’ve got the DVDs, and still love them).

I always love the extra effort Xum puts into making the covers feel like real 60s comics.

Also, Scooby-Doo as Lockjaw is amazing.

These are fabulous. I Love the Jonny Quest ones, and I would so read the Monkey Brigade!

Wow, Marco must’ve customized a 25th Anniversary Red Ninja for his piece.

The detail on space ghost is the clenched for me. The misty/ethereal texture on the white combined with the negative/void that alowes actual space to be seen. This one is the winner hands down

“Sort of poseable action figure.” Truer words were never spoken.

Someone give Derek Langille a Jonny Quest book to draw NOW!

Sure it repels rust and is easy to apply, but can it replace Derek on the cast of “Days of Our Lives”?

(I’ll have less snarky commentary after I get some sleep…)

i want that deadpool figure!

Another fantastic week. I’d read the heck out of these if they were comics!

I love this feature.

Wow – so good. Particularly Marco and Axel.

The She-Ra/Red Sonja one almost made me spew my drink over the monitor… Awesome work!

Lots of great work this week. But that Space Ghost – damn, that’s gorgeous. Didn’t even notice the chest emblem at first. I would so buy that series.

Sean wins, because monkeys. Everyone was great too. But, as I said, monkeys.

Love Jetsons/Kamandi, Johnny Quest/Hellboy, G.I. Joe/Deadpool, She-Ra/Red Sonja, Freakazoid/Deadpool, Scooby-Doo/Doctor Doom (yay, a SD mashup! *grin*), and Ghostbuster/Deadman. Great stuff!

Who else remembers when Saturday morning cartoons were cartoons, and NOT half-hour toy/videogame commercials?

Thanks, folks, but I can’t take too much credit for the Jonny Quest/Hellboy pieces. I always put my name in a corner somewhere, but I left it off this one. I just photoshopped some screencaps together and drew Hellboy into them. You can see a little of the process here: http://dereklangille.blogspot.ca/2014/02/quest-for-hellboy.html

Some great stuff as always. Xum rocks as always and Derek’s Johnny Quest was way cool as was Marco’s Deadpool and I thought Mike’s Space Ghost was awesome.
No Thea this week?

“Small parts are delicious” heh heh heh heh

Excellent week, everyone.

With the Muppet Babies/Tiny Titans, I think it would’ve worked better for Skeeter to be Starfire and Piggy to be Wonder Girl. (After all, Skeeter has the same basic skin color as Starfire.)

Awesome to see my Kamandi/Jetsons suggestion make it up! Great work by everyone this week.

[…] The Line It Is Drawn #179 features comic book characters meeting cartoon characters. Among my suggestions was this simple line from Twitter: “The Jetsons crash to the surface and meet Kamandi & company.” Artist Nick Perks saw my suggestion and selected it for this week’s edition. The result is nothing short of awesome. […]

The lightsaber for deadpool was a nice touch. But there are a lot of things on that piece.

Really amazing style-imitations this week, especially Xum’s “Snorks” and Tobin’s “Dexter’s Lab”.

I can’t believe NOBODY’S done Daredevil meets the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
