Happy Thanksgiving!

While waiting for our Thanksgiving dinner guests to arrive, I wondered if I had anything in my archive of artwork appropriate to the occasion... and then I remembered this oddity. It's another one of those "tryout"-type pages which I drew with the intention of using to try to get a job drawing comics for Marvel or DC, but never actually did anything with.

This one is unfinished. I don't recall exactly WHY I drew this scene of several of the X-Men having Thanksgiving dinner with the Fantastic Four, but I suspect that I was thinking that it would be a good idea to include some non-superheroic scenes in my tryout pages. I think my favorite part of this piece is Wolverine slicing the turkey with his claws.

Again, please excuse the poor quality of the image -- I lit the piece badly when I photographed it. -- PL

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family Pete. I love that drawing. I always wondered what Thanksgiving would be like for the X-men and Fantastic Four. I always thought that every year Professor X would make Logan carve the turkey.

The expression on Thing's face as Reed reaches over and grabs one of the wings is just too good. I was a little depressed that I couldn't go back home for Turkey Day but this lifted me just a bit, thanks for sharing!

That is so cool! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family and all the Mirage people!

Buslady will flip to see Ben with the turkey-- next to Raph, her faves are Ben Grimm and Hellboy.

Adorable! Yes I adore Ben :D

Hope turkey day was good for you up there in the freeze! Bundle up!

A perfect thankgiving greeting for this little comics geek. I especially grinned over the fact that this is from the "Storm goes punk rocker" time period.

And yes, Wolvie would have to carve the turkey. He comes with his own Ginsu.

Hope your turkey day was awesome Peter, for you and yours!
