The Line it is Drawn #193 – G.I. Joe Mash-Ups!
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…
Next week is Father’s Day, which reminded me of the dramatic reveal that Darth Vader was Luke Skywalker’s father. Which made me think that it would be neat to do a theme we did in the early days of the Line – dramatic reveals! Come up with a dramatic reveal involving a comic character and our artists will depict it! Some examples from last time were “Donald Duck is Howard the Duck’s father!” “Mystique is a Smurf!” Stuff like that.
Read on for the sketches that came about courtesy of the last question/challenge!
Suggested by Steve Gerding – In honor of the passing of the creator of the G.I. Joe action figure, Donald Levine, team-up and/or mash-up comic characters with G.I. Joe characters.
I’ll put them in alphabetical order based on the name of the Twitter user who made the suggestion.
