Comfort and Joy

Happy Holidays! Five new drawings.

Snow Patrol Spidey

Peter and Felicia stay warm on a snowy night. I love Pete and MJ together, but I really like this fun and sexy couple.

X-Force, X-Mas 1992

The ‘90s mutant rebels celebrate Christmas in the IPAC. I like this roster; this was the team after Cable’s disappearance and their costumes were nicely redesigned by Greg Capullo. I remember the Cannonball-led X-Force leaving Xavier’s School in the title’s December 1992 issue, and in this drawing, I imagine them spending a quiet Christmas together after a mission. Yeah, they didn’t notice Ric and Shatterstar getting chummy all those years ago.

You’re a Dear One, Mr. Grimm

It’s cuddling time! Ben Grimm and Alicia Masters, among the most enduring Beauty and the Beast-ish pairings in the Marvel Universe.

12 Bats A-Singing

Bat Caroling! Damian Wayne, Dick Grayson, Bruce Wayne, Jason Todd, Cassandra Cain, Kate Kane, Helena Bertinelli, Stephanie Brown, Jean-Paul Valley, Barbara Gordon, Alfred Pennyworth and Tim Drake form a Bat Choir. I imagine them doing a medley of “Happy X-Mas (War is Over),” “River,” “The Christians and the Pagans,” and of course, “The 12 Days of Christmas.” Happy Holidays, Bat-Fans!

Herc and Northstar: Winter Fun

“Ho, friend Northstar! Mayhap ‘tis best if thou stayest in Avengers Mansion until yon snowstorm hath passed!”

“But it’s not a snowstorm, Hercules… I mean, of course, mon ami!”

Yup, they hooked up, as implied in Hercules: Fall of an Avenger a few months ago. I’m a little surprised that nobody’s done and posted fan drawings of the secret lovers on DeviantArt yet. So here’s one. They probably got tryst-y after an Avengers-Alpha Flight Christmas party.
