This week’s The Line it is Drawn is all about TV superheroes meeting. The entry by Xum Yukinori features a Flash (1990)/Flash (2014) mashup with the John Wesley Shipp incarnations of Barry Allen and Jay Garrick in an homage to the classic Infantino/Anderson cover for Flash #137, “Vengeance of the Immortal Villain.”
Head over to CSBG to see crossovers with 1970s Wonder Woman and Captain America, Batman ’66 and Gotham, and more!
I finally found this picture again so I could scan it: Costume design for Princess Anna of Arrendelle, aka Impulse.
Background: The four-year-old was watching Frozen for the 538th time, and I found myself thinking of Paul Hostetler’s Disney Princess Justice League from The Line is is Drawn.
Watching Anna go from half-asleep to fully dressed and running around the castle in two seconds, I remarked, “You know, they should have made Anna the Flash instead of Rapunzel.”
Katie and I looked at each other, and she replied, “No…Impulse!” A few viewings later, she drew a costume design.
Crisis on Castoff Earth by Xum Yukinori, from this week’s The Line It Is Drawn feature at Comics Should Be Good. You may recall his Flash of Two Worlds homage from a previous installment featuring the Earth-1 and New 52 versions of Barry Allen.
This week’s topic: post-apocalyptic versions of comic book characters. rodtownsend suggested: “Wally West, Donna Troy, Stephanie Brown (and anyone similarly deNUded) hanging out at the end of the world.”

Two entries in this week’s The Line It Is Drawn feature at Comics Should Be Good. This week’s theme was cover homages.
First up, Flash of Two Worlds featuring the Earth-1 and New 52 versions of Barry Allen, suggested by Ecovore and drawn by Xum Yukinori.
So which Flash is better, Barry Allen or Barry Allen?
And then there’s X-Men: Days of Future Past featuring a younger Wally West (Kid Flash) and Donna Troy (Wonder Girl) trapped in the alternate world of the New 52. Suggested by starpilotsix and drawn by John Trumbull.
I so wish this one was real so I could read it.
