The Line It Is Drawn #66 – Comic Book Characters and Futurama!

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… 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, Sonia Harris Danielle Leigh, Melinda Beasi, Michelle Smith, Bill Reed and Scott!

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 SEVEN 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 top six choices 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 9:00 AM Pacific, Friday, November 18th).

Next week’s theme is…

Thanks for the classics! Pick a comic book character and a classic novel/play/poem that you’d like to see the character mashed into. Just tell us the character and the novel/play/poem – our artists will figure out how to work them in! Batman/Jane Eyre, Elektra/Electra, etc.

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

Team-up or mash-up any comic book character with a character from the animated series Futurama!


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

All copyright and trademarks of the following characters are held by their respective owners!

great stuff, all around. The Phil LaMarr limbo league needs Vamp, though– he’d surpass even Hermes.

Wow, Bender is very popular!

Chaz’s pieces is kinda trippy and it made my head feel funny. I really dug it.

I want to know how Canaan finds time to keep up with the column, post new Max Overacts strips, and get the Max Overacts book ready for production!

One of the pieces has a typo… can you find it?

And Zoidberg as King of Atlantis is awesome!

Great work from all the artists, but I’m a bit let down that Bender dominated the whole thing. Futurama has a ton of great characters. I’m especially sad Zapp Branagin didn’t show up, perhaps to arrest the Starjammers or run crying from Galacticus. I guess that’s what I get for not tweeting.

A suggestion for the Zoidburg caption:

“That underwear! I found such a pair once! The tastiest in the dumpster!”

(V)_(;,,,; )_(V) Hooray for Zoidberg!
And also, Bender is great. So. There’s always that.

Dammit, Brian. If you’re trying to get me to register a Twitter account, you’re doing a damn good job.


November 17, 2011 at 12:41 pm

“Someone tell the Lost City of Atlanta that we found their village idiot!”

Suddenly, a Brain Michael Bender comes to mind . . .

“Bight my shiny, metal, decompressed ass!”
