The Line it is Drawn #194 – Dramatic Revelations!!

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 X-Men Days of Future Past, it’s time travel time! Take a current comic book character and send them back in time to prevent a notable event from the past of DC, Marvel, Image or whatever. Deadpool trying to save Gwen Stacy, that sort of thing.

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

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.


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

Great work, everyone!

Okay, folks, go tweet us suggestions for next week!


This is great, but I think Mr. Roger’s would probably be a Blue or Indigo Lantern.

@Julian, nah he’d be in the Sinestro Corps.

Nice! Super funny.

Humming “Rock Me Jerry Lewis” while reading Nick’s art.

Paul’s contribution reminds me of my days of working in a cube farm.

Killing isn’t funny… but i laughed. Hard.
I must be a really bad person.
Also, i love the Genderbender Hulk.

Elmo FTW. That was just amazing.

“Exactly. I assumed it was a humor mag!”

Yes, Jerry. It makes a lot more sense like that.

Who’s the blue costume in front of Green Arrow’s?

Black Lightning?

Who’s the blue costume in front of Green Arrow’s?

The Shroud?

Jerry Lewis as Hush made it for me.

Ok I’ll go now so Hush can be the new supporting character we introduced at the beginning of the story

So perfect.

I particularly enjoyed Elmo seeing his ice cream fall and inducing a Hulk like rage.

I wanted to say Blue Beetle, though the elements don’t really match up (no goggles, for one). It seems familiar; but I can’t place it as anything definite.

Indigo Tribe is an internment corps filled with criminals. Mr. Rogers would definitely be a Blue Lantern…..or a Star Sapphire.

I guess Jerry Lewis shooting the Joker can be interpreted as a reference to this comic : http://www.eides.com/store/jerrylewis97_80.jpg

With lines like Ho-Ho-Homicide, no wonder Jerry would think killing aint funny.

After reading the Storms post I’m sad that there isn’t a “Winter Soldier was Rick Jone’s dad” post.

If Yoda is related to anyone, it should be Grover.

And I can’t tell who that is in front of Green Arrow either. Definitely has lightning bolts on it. For that matter, who is it between black suit Spidey/Venom and Daredevil?

That’s Midnighter, from THE AUTHORITY.

M-Wolverine, the one to the left is, I believe, Midnighter (from Stormwatch and The Authority). The other one with the lighting bolts… yeah, I feel like I should know who it is, but I just can’t place it…

The Mr. Rogers/Green Lantern mash-up is really pretty awesome. Great work.

Yeah, that’s who that is.

Funny thing is the costume looks a bit like Speed Demon, and I just remember not too long ago a post about someone else who had a costume that looked like Speed Demon, and I had just noticed the similarities. But I can’t remember who the original was.

I agree, Mr. Rogers would have been a Blue Lantern.

The Blue guy in front of Green Arrow is meant to be DarkWing from Invincible.

Love the Hulk’s lipstick.

Now I need a statue of R2-D2 as a chicken. Damn.

The toad one is kinda anti-Semitic yo.

Jerry Lewis as Hush is a riot, even if that last panel came out of left field.

Is Vandal Savage holding Dino’s skull? And that looks like Wilma’s skull and necklace behind him.

Mr. Rogers as a Green Lantern…cool. :-)

Thanks, Mathieu.

What toad one? And why are the posters who try to cry foul in the comments for these always anonymous?

Goddamnit, guys… Do I even really need to point out the problem here? That wasn’t even what the suggestion was.

Xander: Hi, I’m using my real name, and definitely calling foul on yet another joke where the punchline basically adds up to “Haha trans women. Haha. Hilarious”.

And this is just a week or so after the stuff with Greg Burgas’ misreading of Trees, and use of outdated, offensive terms?

CSBG should know better. Really.

Haha, some of these are just brilliant.
