12 Days of Christmas, Day 6: Erika Moen

It’s the sixth day of Christmas at ComicsAlliance, as our 12 Days of Christmas original art series continues. Every day until the 25th, we’ll be posting a new illustration from a comics creator at Periscope Studio that reinterprets the days of the Christmas carol — with a comic book twist.

Today that creator is Erika Moen. Erika writes and draws the autobiographical webcomic “DAR: A Super Girly Top Secret Comic Diary,” which will be ending on December 28th after six years! You can still read the whole thing online and buy her book collection, though, and wait with bated breath for her next project.

Erika really likes octopuses, so much so that she even started selling adorable, coin-sized potted tentacles on her Etsy page that became a mini-phenomenon among her readers, especially the pots with two tentacles reaching together to form a heart. Now she has used her cephalophilia to turn the six geese a laying into a Christmas moment that falls somewhere between Kafka and Lovecraft, and we are all better, if slightly more disturbed, for it.

Ahem:
On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:
Six geese a laying
Five power riiiiiiings

Four Calling Birds
Three French Hens
Two Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtledoves
And a “partridge” in a pear tree.
