There's no Christmas gift quite like personalized, original art from a comics illustrator, which is why I turned to CA favorite Katie Cook to commission some very special holiday gifts: incredibly adorable portraits of ComicsAlliance senior staff and their pets, including Pearl the Pug, the New 52 hardcover-sized Ariel, and Pomeranian duo Yoshi and Harley. In the case of Senior Writer Chris Sims, who has no pets, we used the only fitting substitute: Batman. Click through for the full series, and check out more of Cook's work on ComicsAlliance and her website or online store.
