Todd Nauck makes one couple’s anniversary a comic dream come true

Recently promoted Marvel Associate Editor Ben Morse moonlights as a blogger at The Cool Kids Table, where he posted an amazing piece of art he received as a wedding anniversary/birthday gift from his wife Megan.

Spouses of comic fans take note: Ben’s wife commissioned comic artist Todd Nauck to draw them from their wedding photos, surrounded by Ben’s two favorite characters Nova and The Flash. Swooping in from above is Miss Martian, who Megan identifies with. Captain America was thrown in to balance out the DC/Marvel split.

Original comic art and commissions are a great gift for any husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, friend or family. It’s unique, and you can even personalize it like this.

Megan more than identifies with Miss Martian — Geoff Johns named the character, M’gann M’orzz, after her!

Wow, very cool! Lovely art from Todd. Agreed that these are great gifts; one of our most cherished wedding gifts was an original art piece from our friend Alan Davis, who drew us as Hulk (a book Robin worked on for a number of years) and Monstress (from when I was active in Legion fandom). It hangs on our bedroom wall to this day.

For my anniversary in 2009 I commissioned a piece from Lauren Montgomery (director of the Wonder Woman animated series):

At our wedding, we had a cake topper of Superman and Wonder Woman wearing a talis and veil. The actual poses and facial expressions are based on photos of us at our wedding.

Best gift ever, if I do say so myself. :)
