The Line it is Drawn #280 – Great Comic Book 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 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…

We’ve had war, now we’re going the opposite direction and featuring LOVE! Pick two comic book characters and our artists will draw their wedding. Our artists will decide if they want to draw a happy wedding or a Graduate style interrupted wedding or a “supervillain interruption” wedding

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

Today is March 4th, so let’s march forth into battle and select your favorite famous comic book battles and our artists will draw said battle in their own particular way


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

I suggested Squirrel Girl vs Doom as well and love Axel’s take on it. And wow, Nick’s Rune! Fab!

Great work everybody! But, um, I’m guessing that’s the Henry Cavill Superman there with Venom. ?!?

Y’know, that Justice League vs. Crime Syndicate picture really drives home for me that the only member of the original Crime Syndicate (as much as I like them) who had a decent costume was Power Ring. Except maybe the Anti-Xum (Mux?).

I’m calling it. Earth 3 is home to Professor Yum Xukinori.

“I suggested Squirrel Girl vs Doom…”


@Alaric, you’re saying Owlman doesn’t strike terror into your heart? Still, I love how badly our heroes are doing….how could you not pick up an issue with that cover to see if they survive? And I too want to what Dr. Xum’s opposite number is called.

And there were a lot of teeth this edition; Venom, the GL tattoo tooth, the rabbit with the pointy teeth….

@John Trumbull – Yeah, I was surprised.

This week’s effort was a knockout! :-D

Fantastic job, everyone!

Conan Sinclair-

Amazing! I get a little bit of a Paul Chadwick vibe from the picture (small figures in “widescreen”panel, b&w, cleanline work), which I like a lot. Great use of contrast & character posing!

I enjoyed that line from Squirrel Girl…

Nick Butch’s take on the Mutant Massacre is nothing but sick filth!
(I loved it)
