The Line it is Drawn #275 – Harry Potter 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…

With the news that Deadwood would be returning to TV, along with all the other TV revivals, I thought it would be fun to continue a finished TV series as a comic book, with the sky’s the limit as to how said show would continue as a comic book. Don Draper gets bitten by a radioactive spider? Jonah Hex ends up at the Ponderosa? Whatever!

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

In honor of the passing of Alan Rickman, next week is a Harry Potter theme week! Mash-up or team-up comic book characters with Harry Potter characters!


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

Great Harry Potter week, everyone! A lovely tribute to Rickman.

Okay, folks, go tweet us ideas for TV series continued as comic books!


Love the homages to Rickman’s various other roles in Nick’s. Especially Dr. Lazarus.

Great Stuff. I would totally read Xum Yukinori’s Snape comic.

BTW, I forgot to thank everyone for the awesome David Bowie picks last time. I loved them all but Rogan Josh, Gene Guilmette and Padraic Coyne did an awesome job bringing my requests to life. Also, that last piece by Nick Perks was phenomenal.

BTW, Gravity Falls is ending on the 15th, Any chance we’ll get that show as a topic? Because I’d love it.

Alan Rickman, what a great actor. What Rowling said is true for me too. When you read the novels after watching the movies, it’s impossible not to picture Snape as Rickman. All the other characters you might still be able to separate them from the cinematic versions, but Rickman owned the part so much.

And I love Dumbledore’s line. “If I’m not actively endangering children, then I’m not doing my job.” Dumbledore makes Bruce Wayne and every other superhero who took children with them in their crimefighting mission look like model guardians.

“If I’m not actively endangering children, I’m not doing my job.” Truer words were never spoken.

And yeah, most of my mental “cast” for the Harry Potter books has stayed the same, but Alan Rickman took over as Snape after I saw the first movie.

Great tribute :D

I recognise all the other Alan Rickmans (in the Klarion one) but the first… I’m guessing Hans Grueber? (Am I wrong that the second is The Sheriff of Nottingham?)

The magical plants class would’ve been more appropriate for Ivy and Swamp-Thing, but less Alan Rickman-y.

I agree that Rickman was a perfect Snape, but I feel the same about the main three: Radcliffe as Potter (if only he’d had the messy hair, but the actor fit) and Grint as Ron and Watson as Hermione (if only they’d done the buck teeth).

A wonderful tribute to the character and a wonderful way to mark the passing of a great actor. I would read a mini-series spun out of literally every single one of these comics!

Deadwood is coming back?!?

Also would love to read that Snape comic.
Love the portraits on the wall.
Oh, they were all very good! Great work!

Yeah, Deadwood is coming back as a movie. Can’t wait for it.

Fantastic job, everyone! :-D
