TLIID #161: Dr. Strange, M.D. by johntrumbull
TLIID #161: Dr. Strange, M.D.
I just realized that I never posted this piece on DA... So here's a blast from the past!

The Line It Is Drawn #161 for 10/18/13! This week's theme was comic strip/comic book mashups. I chose to do Marvel's Dr. Strange as Rex Morgan, M.D. This panel is of course an homage to a Steve Ditko panel from Dr. Strange's origin from STRANGE TALES #115.

And yeah, I know that Rex Morgan is a multi-panel strip, but the gag worked in one, so what the hell.

TLIID #200: Brand New Super Teams! by johntrumbull
TLIID #200: Brand New Super Teams!
I made a return to TLIID for #200 and for my birthday, 8/1/14! 

The theme was Brand-New Super-Teams. The rule was to make up your own super-team consisting of one Marvel character, one DC character, one character from an independent comic book company and two characters from any other form of fiction (novels, movies, whatever). I'm a big pulp fan, so I chose a team consisting of Tarzan, Tom Strong, Doc Savage, The Phantom, and The Shadow. This thing took me FOREVER, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Hope you like it!

Special thanks to letterer supreme Todd Klein for helping me get copies of logos for the Phantom and The Shadow!

I would ask if you could do a LIID of One More Day, but considering how its so well known with out bad it it, might make the idea way too obvious to do lol

I have a feeling if we did a OMD theme week, we would just get a bunch of suggestions bashing the story, and God knows there's plenty of that on the internet already. I honestly like to keep my stuff more positive and fun than that.
HeartlessSlayer Featured By Owner May 3, 2013
Makes sense, the only reason I suggested that was because I saw your take on the Sins Past story so it just made me think of OMD since JMS was involved in a way. Speaking of which, do you have any thoughts on Maximum Carnage?

Nope. Never read it.
