It's the seventh 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's illustration comes from Steve Lieber, the artist of the graphic novel "Whiteout" -- an Antarctic murder mystery that was recently adapted to a feature film -- and the creator-owned "Underground" miniseries with Day 5's Jeff Parker, about murder and intrigue in the depths of disputed caves in a small town.

Steve brings us an incredible illustration of seven Bella Swans a swimming, which manages to make the frighteningly incompetent and co-dependent "Twilight" heroine worse in the only way that might be possible: by there being more of her. Enjoy!

Ahem:

On the seventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:

Seven Bella Swans a swimming

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.
