Christmas is finally here, and while the CA staff, we'd like to take a look back at one of our favorite original art series every, the 12 Days of Christmas by the comics artists of Periscope Studio that reimagine the 12 days of the classic Christmas carol with a nerdy twist. Join us now as we count down through all twelve wonderfully nerdy images like 10 Lord Vaders a Leaping, 7 Bella Swans a Swimming, and 2 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtledoves, from comics creators like Steve Lieber, Jeff Parker and Colleen Coover. Click through to embiggen the images, and have a very Merry Christmas!
When it comes to the holiday gift-giving season, comic book readers are notoriously difficult to shop for. I mean, most of us are down at the shop buying our favorite stuff every single week, so when the time comes for people who like us to get us something we want, well, a lot of times we already have it. That’s why we’re stepping in with a public service, bringing you comics-related items sure to make the season brighter, whether you’re browsing for a gift or just looking for something to drop hints about so that you don’t get stuck with a random assortment of back issues again.

A $50 donation will even get contributors print copies of the six books. That is, provided the project meets its $25,000 funding goal.
You probably know that the thick lineup of talent at work over at Portland's Periscope Studio has not escaped us. Cat Farris comes from their ranks, and for anyone into pixies or cake, her online sketch pile is a veritable buffet of adorable Family Circus-sized characters and at least one rendition of a Disney princess spliced with Portal imagery...
