The Line it is Drawn #273 – Heavy Metal Week!

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 and Sonia Harris

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 artists will each pick one of your suggestions and I will post their drawings based on your suggestions 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 for the next Line is…

In honor of the passing of David Bowie, the theme is, you know, David Bowie. Mash comic characters with Bowie, illustrate his song lyrics with comic book characters, have comic book characters appear in Bowie music videos, Bowie album covers, comic book characters as Bowie movie characters, whatever strikes your fancy!

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

In honor of the passing of Lemmy Kilmister from Motorhead, it’s a heavy metal week! Either team-up or mash-up a notable heavy metal band with comic book characters!


I’ll put them in alphabetical order based on the name of the Twitter user who made the suggestion (with two notable exceptions that you’ll see).

Great work all around! Just wanted to say “welcome aboard” to Padraic and Conan…and while I’ll miss Philip Horton’s contributions, I wish him the best of luck!

Does this mean in 2 weeks we’ll get the Alan Rickman tribute?

Motorhead as a Marvel UK title.

I really expected ‘Motorhead and Killpower’ when I saw this suggestion.

Well, at least Merk got it right this week.

Great work everyone! :-D

Welcome aboard Padraic & Conan! :-)

Related to this topic, the webcomic Life & Death touched on Lemmy’s death a few weeks back http://theduckwebcomics.com/Life_and_Death/5500650/

Funny thing, Lemmy didn’t like Europe’s The Final Countdown

…or the Grizzly Adams tribute :/

@Manzana Jack: and as you can see, it seems very painful for him to play it. :)

Why is Justice League EUROPE Flash’s hair blond and not red? :( Made this Wally fan sad.

He just borrowed a wig from Dinah.

I’m not on Twitter but hope we get a reference to “Uncle Arthur” next week…
