Because we're feeling the pull of the yuletide (whatever the heck that is), ComicsAlliance decided to start a countdown to Christmas in the tradition of that old holiday standard, The 12 Days of Christmas. Except we shook it up, tossed it over to some of the craziest and most talented comics creators we know, and made our own version: The Twelve Days of Comic Book Christmas. Each day until December 24th, we'll post an original piece of art from a creator telling a very different story about what their true love gave to them. So enjoy this gift to you, fair readers -- and make sure to spread the good comics cheer!

"On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me: eleven carbines piping!"

- Nathan Fox

About Nathan Fox: Nathan Fox was born in 1975 in Washington, D.C., and raised from the age of 5 in suburban Houston. An early addiction to cartoons, commercials and video games led to a lifelong exploration of narrative art and the over-stimulation associated with his generation. In the hopes of making such an addiction his full-time job, Nathan left Texas for Missouri where he attended the Kansas City Art Institute.

Fox has recently worked on FLUORESCENT BLACK, the graphic novel, available for pre-order at http://www.heavymetal.com and is currently working on DMZ #56 with BRIAN WOOD and DOGS OF WAR thru SCHOLASTIC BOOKS. As if that wasn't keeping him busy, he's wrapping up a 30 POSTCARD BOOK with CHRONICLE BOOKS as well, and much more - check out http://foxnathan.com/ and http://www.aolartists.com/profiles/nathan-fox/.
