It’s the great comic book amalgamation of 2013! Pick any two comic book characters and our artists will combine them into an, you know, amalgamation! Just like when DC and Marvel did it in the 1990s (Superman and Captain America became Super Soldier, etc.)

In honor of the Playlist comic book anthology that Phil Sevy is working on (that you can help get made by funding it here), the idea is to name a comic character (or characters) and a song lyric that you’d like to see our artists interpret as a drawing featuring said character(s).

I waited until Phil’s project was funded to post this. It is now funded! You did it, folks! Yay!

Enjoy!

Wolverine/Sabretooth “Like a true nature’s child we were born, born to be wild.”

The 140 character limit is a challenge, but not an insurmountable one (the sample suggestion still had over 50 characters left)!

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

In honor of 2013′s Will Eisner Week (read more about it here), you simply have to name a comic book character and our artists will do a pin-up incorporating that character’s name into the piece, a la Will Eisner and the first pages of his famed comic book, The Spirit. Thanks to John Trumbull for the great suggestion!

Enjoy!

In honor of Cyclops and Uncanny X-Men #1, the theme is superheroes gone bad! Pick a superhero that you’d like to see our artists depict as a villain. What would Superman look like if he was a bad guy? Or Captain America? You get the picture. If they feel like it, our artists might even draw a villain as a good guy fighting the villainous hero (if they feel like it, of course).

Enjoy!
