Cartoonist Tom Beland, best known for True Story, Swear to God, has posted a series of sketches showcasing comic book heroines — and in one case anti-heroines — as they enjoy a little time to themselves.
Medusa multitasks while reading the newspaper and Storm whips up a fluffy cloud elephant, while Sue Storm won’t allow a little thing like a multi-pronged attack by villains tear her away from a good book. It’s not all Marvel, though: You’ll also see Alana and Hazel from Saga, and Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy from DC Comics.
Inspired by Skottie Young’s popular baby variant covers, artist Luigi Monaldi created the adorable “Indestructibles” — featuring pint-sized versions of the Invisible Woman, Incredible Hulk and Wolverine — for a “baby comics” contest on treddi.com. The details are pretty amazing (click on the image below to super-size it), from the Reed Richards doll in Lil’ Sue’s hand to the splintering floor beneath Hulk’s fist to the claw marks on the chalkboard.
