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…
A famous cover motif from DC’s Silver Age was so-called “Superdickery,” where it would seem like Superman was doing something cruel for no good reason (inside the comic you’d realize that it was all for a good reason – he was attacking Jimmy Olsen because Jimmy was secretly a bad guy disguised as Jimmy, stuff like that). There’s a whole site devoted to the concept. This week’s theme is doing MODERN version of Superdickery covers. For example, Lois Lane aghast at Superman, who is on his iPad “Why did you unfriend me on Facebook, Superman? Why?!?”
Read on for the sketches that came about courtesy of the last question/challenge!
In honor of the great Robin Williams, team-up or mash-up comic book characters with Robin Williams characters from film or television
