The Line it is Drawn #201 – Comic Book Crossover Battles!

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…

The Guardians of the Galaxy have dominated the box office, but they’re not stopping there! They want to take over ALL movies! So mash-up the Guardians of the Galaxy (single members of the team or the team as a whole) with other famous movies! The Groot, the Bad and the Ugly, stuff like that.

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

After such a complicated week, we’re going back to basics, literally, with a repeat of the theme for the very first Line it is Drawn, have two characters from different comic book companies who have never crossed over with each other have a crossover. But let’s do a twist this time around, in honor of Uncanny X-Men #201 (and the Cyclops/Storm fight), have it be heroes from two different comic book companies who have never crossed over with each other FIGHTING each other!


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

Oh, nice call on Axel homaging that Thor cover.

Wonderful work everyone! Love ‘em all but I think it’s a tossup between Stupendous Man/ G-Man and Hellboy/Scooby Doo for my absolute favorite though.

Love the Calvin/G-Man slap-fight so much

Fantastic work this week! Nick Perks pitch perfect parody of the Silver Age Superman covers is awesome, I loved the Thor homage on the Mal Vs. Kirk cover and the Kenshin Vs. Katana piece looked pretty awesome. But in the end, I think Paul Hostetler wins the prize for fantasticness. Still, almost every piece made it hard to pick.

Great work all around. A little irked that I didn’t think to suggest the Straw Man/Prof Xum piece though :D Well done

Delighted to see one of my suggestions (Flash/Rainbow Dash) used for the first time! Outstanding work all around!

Loved, loved, loved the Hellboy one. His reaction to them trying to pull off his “mask” was hilarious.

All of them were great, but “Not in the Face” for the win.

Axel’s, Nick’s, and Paul’s take the cake for me. On Nick’s truth be told, if you just added a ‘shorts’ portion to Fairchild’s outfit, it wouldn’t look so bad. Sort of like a wet-suit, almost.

I liked the back narrative of Damian v Kickass i.e. Grant Morrison v Mark Millar!

alucard? from hellsing? that was unexpected.
I remember that manga long time ago.
It was rather obscure for a manga, which means that it was a minor hit with a following,
but not necessarily a cult status. nice

Some really brilliant stuff here; but, Stupendous Man wins, just for capturing the vibe of Watterson.

It’s been a good week for green chicks.

Oh, Stupendous Man. My hero. :)

Oh please, like Kirk wouldn’t kick Mal Reynolds’s ass.

That must be the Chris Pine Kirk, ’cause there’s no way Mal gets away with that against the Shat!

Love Scooby/Hellboy!
Calvin/G-Man slapfight is hilarious. :-D
Se-Hulk and Fairchild almost look like teammates with their outfits. And I agree–put on some shorts, Fairchild!
Secret Society of Super Servants is clever and funny. :-)
And I love Kirk getting shoved aside! *evil grin*

Fantastic crossover goodness! :-D

Nick teamed up two suggestions for one great piece!

Uncle Woofie, love the expressions on Astro Boy & Magnus’s faces.

And Xum & David teamed up to produce a funny piece!

Great work everyone!

Hate to say it but Blade it toast! He wouldn’t last a second although I feel Alucard would toy with him.

Rocket took em out!! Awesome picture!! Gonna have Nelson back to #UTJH soon!!

Alfred Vs. Jarvis: so epic!

The funny thing about the Alfred/Jarvis one is that I can identify pretty much everybody listed up top–but Carstairs? I have no idea. And google’s been no help at all.

Try Googling “Carstairs DC Comics” There’s another clue on the cover.

Xum: All that brings up is Witchfire, whom I’ve actually also never heard of, even though I’m a longtime DC fan. (Man, you skip one series…) But my goodness, she seems to have changed!

Oh wow, I just found it, and he actually was in a series I read semi-fanatically! He’s just so obscure that he’s not included in any wikis and is pretty much ungoogle-able. Well done!

I’m still clueless on Carstairs…

Carstairs was the butler for the Secret Society of Super-Villains. He first appeared in issue #1 (1976), and was revealed to be a spy for Darkseid in issue #3 (which was his last appearance), but his secret origin will finally be revealed in the issue depicted above…
