The Line it is Drawn #187 – Superhero Spring Break!

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 his new film next week, it’s Spider-Man team-up time! Just pick a fictional character from any medium you choose (Comic books, movies, TV shows, novels, epic poems, songs, whatever strikes your fancy) to team-up with Spider-Man!

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

It’s Spring Break time! So suggest something that a comic book character would do for spring break! Somebody better suggest Batman water skiing!


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

brianeison suggested

Any “hunky” male superhero as a bartender/gigolo at a beach resort like Tom Cruise/Brian Flanagan from Cocktail.

Cynthia “Thea” Sousa drew this one. Her website is here. Off the Florida Keys, there’s a place called Kokomo. That’s where Amanda wants to go to get away from it all. Bodies in the sand, tropical drink melting in her hand. She’ll be falling in love to the rhythm of a steel drum band down in Kokomo. But at the same time, she’ll still manage to color her mother’s pieces! For more examples of her work, well, Key Largo, Montego, baby won’t we go to her website here. You’ll get there fast but then you can take it slow checking out her work.

Awesome week, everyone!

Okay, folks, go tweet us suggestions for next week’s amazing, spectacular week!


Great stuff as always from Thea and a thumbs up for Nick for the laugh he gave me this week

but…but…with guys its supposed to be a wet JOCKY SHORT contest!

That is a great volleyball image. Man, I miss the Legion…

Dave B made me lol.

I could read a whole comic about Deadpool and Hulk as bunkmates at camp.

Here’s an animated version of the Darksied/Superman drawing: http://strawmancomics.deviantart.com/art/Spring-Vacation-with-Darksied-449986059 Brian will have it up on this page after a while.

Excellent stuff this week. My favourite might be Ant-Man scaling The Thing, but Darkseid waterskiing is a close second.
BTW, do you take suggestions for art? I had an odd idea in which we have art for comic characters with recipes, exercises and other how to/educational books in the vein of the following:

Avengers Girls Gone Wild is hot. Love Ms Marvel’s swimsuit!

Captain Marvel and Black Widow are in an, uh, oddly low position. Particularly with one’s mouth that wide open.

Doesn’t Deadpool have the umbrella on the wrong end?

And Bouncing Boy never had a happier day in his life.

Is it Chaz, Brian, or this site I send the bill for my therapy to?

I had to enlarge it to figure out that was Black Widow in the background of the girls gone wild picture.

Considering how the request for suggestions was worded, Darkseid waterskiing is truly a grand bit of genius. Keith and David, you win the internet today.

Also, I wonder if he got the skis from Black Racer.

I love the first one so much. Partially because it’s good, but mostly for the unexpected subversion.

Nick and Rachel are geniuses. Everyone else is merely superb. Great work everyone!

Why did I click? Why? WHY??

So much good stuff this week. Amazing work.

And am I the only who thinks Blink doing body-shots off Gambit is the hottest thing ever? … Oh, I am? Rescinded.

Rachel gets extra points for Robin sipping a juicy on a cooler.

Also that LSH pic? Sublime.

I’m with you, Nick P. I’m off to bleach my eyeballs now…

Chaz has created plenty of disturbing artwork in the past, but this is his most disturbing one yet. Love it. And Aunt May’s wheatcakes are perky for a woman of her age. Her stint as Galactus’s herald probably helped her in the gravity defying department.

Deadpool has a death wish, but that picture is hilarious!
The girls getting ready to go after the watcher is good too. *evil grin*

Animated Darkseid waterskiing for the win! Too funny.

Is that a dry cellophane t-shirt contest? Forgot to draw any water. Nice rendering though.

I am so sorry…

Good stuff–That bunk bed reminds me of the one Will Ferrell and John C Reilly made in Stepbrothers.

Damn, that’s some pretty sweet Ms. Marvel T&A!

Fantastic work, everybody! :-)

M-Wolverine – “Considering how the request for suggestions was worded, Darkseid waterskiing is truly a grand bit of genius. Keith and David, you win the internet today.”

David does all the work based on my 2 word suggestion and I get half the credit? I’m the new Stan Lee! Woohoo!!! ;-)

Yeah, the Legion volleyball was a great reminder of how awesome it used to be. Thank you for the awesome throwback.

Wonderful work this week, one and all, Liners! Chaz gets the coveted “spit-take award” this week.


I think we know who killed the Watcher.

@KAM- at least. While I love the animated style animated gif, it was the subversive nature of suggesting that instead of “Batman waterskiing” that did it for me.

Ah, okay, I misunderstood what you were saying then.

Yeah, I thought Darkseid waterskiing had more comic potential than Batman for which there are actual photos from some waterpark in the 1970s showing that.
