My entry for the third tryout week for The Line It Is Drawn on the website Comics Should Be Good! The theme for this week was Cover Homages.
The suggestion that really caught my eye was "TINTIN IN TIBET with Rorschach, Nite Owl, Ozymandias and Bubastis from WATCHMEN." As soon as I read that idea, I immediately saw the potential humor of juxtaposing the humor & innocence of TINTIN with the seriousness & darkness of WATCHMEN. The fact that Hergé and Dave Gibbons both have nice open, clean-line styles made a fun challenge, too.
BTW, if Hergé ever used word balloons on his covers, Ozymandias would DEFINITELY be saying, "I did it 35 minutes ago."

I sent Watchmen artist Dave Gibbons a link to this piece on Facebook, and he was nice enough to tweet the link to his followers -- Sweet! Check out the tweet: [link]
