It's the third 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.
How to follow yesterday's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtledoves? Why, with Three French Hens
reading romance comics, courtesy of Dylan Meconis
. Ooh la la!
In the event that you are not familiar with Dylan, her first webcomic was a vampire farce called "Bite Me
," and she's currently working on "Family Man
," about a young religious scholar in mid-18th century Germany who has lost his faith, and finds himself working at the only institution that will have him: an odd, isolated university near the edge of Bohemia full of shadows, secrets, and strange creatures that prowl in the woods outside the town.
I'm a sucker for meticulously researched period pieces, and while I didn't find my way to the comic until recently (sorry, Dylan!), I devoured all 163 pages to date in one sitting the moment I did. Highly recommended! A++ Will read again.

On the third day of Christmas my true love gave to me...
Three French Hens
Two Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtledoves
And a "partridge" in a pear tree.
