From The Line It Is Drawn Week 180:
Our own David Branstetter has this ambitious topic idea – comic book characters mashed-up with popular internet memes! Kitty Pryde in “Gerseberms / Mah fravrit berks,” Monet St. Croix is not impressed, stuff like that.
A snafu with wifi on an Amtrak train caused this piece not to email on time, but here it is: "Aquaman and Mudkips."

Ironman and Dexter's Laboratory

From week 179, the theme was:
Comic book characters teamed-up or mashed-up with Saturday Morning cartoons!
Twitter follower, JohnnyUnusual suggested: Dexter’s Laboratory/Iron Man.  I muss Dexter's Laboratory.

Straight Outta Gotham

From week 178, the theme was:
Every fifty installments, this will be the theme! Mash-up a comic book character and a famous music album cover!
Avid Twitter follower, BigMike20X6 suggested: Batman, Ace, and the Batmobile on the cover of Weird Al Yankovic’s Straight Outta Lynwood.  I had to oblige and like how the piece came out, even though I ran out of time for a color treatment.

Speaking of running out of time, here's a bonus piece.

I had remembered doing this suggestion for Week 128 and upon investigating the CSBG blog's archives, I noticed it was not present with the other submissions.  I had finished the drawing, most probably too late to submit to the Line that week.  Another Big Mike suggestion: Nextwave on They Might Be Giants’ NO! album.  Better late than never.

Check out the other great pieces from Week 128 and Week 178.
