Contest Rules:
1. To enter all you have to do is leave a comment to this post telling me what currently published book you would most like to see me draw.
2. You may enter only ONCE on this blog. You may also enter ONCE on Laura's Lunchnotes blog.

Thanks for your support and Good Luck!

Eric! said...

Brave and the Bold....Love your Batman and would love to see you take on other characters....kinda why I like this Blog.

takingbackjavio said...

X-Factor, you do wonderful with crimish noir stuff.

David A Price said...

Grendel. Especially some Hunter Rose stories. That would make me so, so happy.

Dave said...

Green Arrow/Black Canary

Fred said...

I'll second Eric!'s Brave & the Bold suggestion for the exact same reason. Chris, will you be selling your sketchbook on here?

Brian Jones said...

Detective Comics (of course!)

erica said...

I'd love for your to work on Dynamite's Zorro!

I'm super excited about the sketchbook! The cover looks awesome, Chris!!

...Can't wait to see the content inside!!!

Patman said...

How about you working on "Criminals" with Brubaker (as much I like Sean Phillips art, you'd be just as effective in tone and storytelling).

Matt W. said...

The Spirit! Your flare for the noir, sense of humor, and creative layouts would be perfect for taking up the Eisner torch!

Ian said...

i would love to see you do X-Factor as well

folkes said...

The Walking Dead...nuff'said
That sketchbook looks Fantastic!

Lee said...

Detective Comics would be pretty spectacular, but I also really like someone's suggestion of The Spirit.

Alex said...

Personally, after last week, I'd love to see you on Green Lantern!

Brian said...

I am also going to vote for X-Factor. You did a great Madrox commission for me and everybody who sees it asks why isn't Samnee doing X-Factor? (For some reason they must think that I'm the editor of the book!)

Nathan T said...

Queen & Country. FOREVER! Really, anything spy or crime related (if only Gotham Central weren't cancelled...)

Ryan the Iowan said...

Even though it makes no sense since Darick Robertson is co-creator, but I'd love to see your crack at The Boys. You've got the chops for the series' noir-feel, but can also handle the superheroics with ease.

That being said, I'm sad that Checkmate is no longer being published because your fill-in there was simply astounding.

Mike Sudduth said...

For me, Hellboy immediately comes to mind. You and Mignola both have a great sense of light and dark.

chip said...

An Angel (from buffy) series from IDW. While the stories have been good for the most part, the art hasn't always been on par with the writing. You would rock an Angel story.

sjh said...

I think you'd be great on Punisher

Jose said...

argghh, It's hard to come up with one choice. umm, How about Iron Fist? Yeah that could work. Iron Fist.

RLS said...

Wow, that cover looks amazing, Chris.
As for what I'd love to see you draw, Batman's such an obvious choice so I will say The Spirit.

Justin said...

I love my son because he kisses whatever boo boos I might have.

Mavlock The Midnightman said...

Moon Knight, without a doubt.

Nick said...

I have to agree on the Spirit. Superhero wise I'd have to go Daredevil, as your Tranantula one-shot was great.

On a side note, it was nice to meet you this weekend at the show in Bridgeton. It's a shame you didn't have these sketchbooks there (and if you did, it's a shame I missed them). I dig my 50's sci-fi print though.

Ordyjohn said...

Has to be Green Lantern.

Scotty Don't said...

JONAH HEX!

Terence said...

I'd love to see you working on Hellblazer! I think your style definitely lends itself to that book!

Craig Zablo said...

I'd love to see you do Scalped. Tell me that wouldn't rock.

AnthonyF said...

another vote for Jonah Hex

my runner up is 100 Bullets

Dan said...

My vote is for Tales from the Crypt. I hate to insult, but the current book isn't all that hot. And for me it's a fantastic property. Of course there would need to be some help with the writing as well.

Shane said...

CURRENT Title? Secret Warriors! You drawing Nick Fury and SHIELD going after Strucker and Hydra would be so fanatastic!

DREAM Title? Suicide Squad! That would rock even more, but, there is no current book =(

Momar Van Der Camp said...

I would love to say the Mighty forever and ever and ever. If that continues, solid gold.

Beyond that:

Daredevil. Daredevil Daredevil Daredevil.

Also: Sin City. Truthfully. Your use of blacks would be fantastic there.

Andrew Hanna said...

You MUST do a run on Daredevil someday!

rico said...

Sean Phillips can't draw Criminal forever right? I'd love to see you on that book!

fistfightatthearthouse said...

I think you'd do a fantastic Hellboy/BPRD book.

alan said...

Something Saturday Morning cartoony, like Battle of the Planets.

Though I totally concur with some previous suggestions: Bats, Spirits, Lantern

hopskotch SunDAY said...

Your Batman Daredevil drawing is my wallpaper right now. I love it. I would love to see you on Daredevil. Your work is so clean and dark. You would be perfect 8)

push the pull door said...

Captain America--especially if it could be in black and white.

tonci said...

it'd be great to see you on a well written punisher story... (but looking forward to the mighty as well =)

cheers!

paintopolis said...

BPRD -- in glorious black and white

JMTurnham said...

Punisher origin story. Black & White; the tone growing ever darker as the lighting changes and the character evolves. Very organic with a loud splash of red when his family is killed.

Guy Mann said...

Daredevil. Definitely, Daredevil. Or if, God forbid, something happened to Guy Davis, then I'd like to see you doing BPRD.

Jim said...

This is easy. The answer is Amazing Spider-Man, and Chris, you'd be drawing a 6 to 12 issue story arc involving a showdown between Spidey and the Kingpin. Actually, seeing you draw ANY of Spider-Man's rogues would be quite awesome, but the Kingpin has that noirish, brooding feel to him that you capture so impeccably with your pen. I would vote to have the story arc in black and white. I would also vote to have only myself gain access to purchases of original pages.
TEE HEE!

kid__av said...

i'd love to see you on justice society of america, because of your love of dc comics and its history.

but i have to agree with nathan t... if gotham central were still coming out, that book would suit your style perfectly!

kid__av said...

i'd love to see you on JSA, due to your love of DC Comics characters and their history.

but, i also have to agree with Nathan T... if Gotham Central were still being published, you would rock that book! it was perfectly suited to your style!

Doctor Fantastic said...

I think you should draw Daredevil!

thedave said...

I would love to see you doing (in a perfect world) an issue of the "Invisibles"

Ryan said...

Greg Rucka's QUESTION with Renee Montoya! Your style would be perfect for that series.

Rob said...

Would love to see you on a revival of 'His name is... Savage'.

John D. Young said...

Long time lurker...

Daredevil would be great! I'd love to see your take on the greatest fictional character ever, Dakota North!

Luke said...

Captain America! You and Brubaker would be magic. This is a great ensemble book with great characters like Black Widow, Falcon, and Sharon Carter.

juand182 said...

X-factor is one of my favorite series but the art has been up and down, you on the book would be amazing.

Link said...

I'd like to see you on Hellblazer.

Dirk Shearer said...

THose blacks and great use of negative spacing would be wonderful for a Phantom comic. Whether it's in the jungle or city, you could def pull it off well.

Scott said...

I think you on the Goon would be incredible

Chris Samnee said...

Thanks everyone for entering! Contest is now closed!

mattcrap said...
