Christmas 2021

Merry Christmas to all those who celebrate! After a rough stretch at work, I have several days off around the holidays and that makes me happy! I hope everyone can celebrate a little.

And what better early gift than the annual Supergirl/Batgirl holiday strip by artist Mike Maihack. 

I have gushed about these strips before. They are too cute, too funny, too adorable. 

I love how Supergirl is always cheery, bright, and energetic. I love how Batgirl is always trying to be serious but is often stymied by Supergirl being extra.\

Here they are garbed in the most holiday-based variants of costumes. But, as always, it just isn't enough for Kara. She has to decorate the Babs-tree. 

The banter is wonderful. Their friendship is undeniable.

This is always a palate cleanser and given the current take on Supergirl, it is much needed.

I always appreciate what Maihack does for the holidays. 

But wait! There's more!


DC also posted a Holiday card showing the Trinity hosting a zoom call for many of the young heroes in the DCU.

I like to see this 'next generation' of DC including such newbies as Naomi, Crush, and Wonder Girl. 

But check out the top left!

These were two wonderful Christmas gifts for me. As a Supergirl fan, always good to see her happy.

Enjoy the holidays all! See you soon!

Maihack's Supergirl waaaa-ay aggressive, but she's funny about it so we don't necessarily notice. He even manages to turn Batgirl into a classic "Straight Woman".
Anyway Happy Holidays to All!

Anj, Happy Holidays.

Thanks for sharing the cute SG/BG comic. I love those, and I really need some smiles right now. Xmas is not really living up to what it's supposed to be this year so, some positivity like this is nice to see.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

These are always nice. Mike Maihack always seems to find the right balance between cute and funny. You know you're getting to be an old fogey (or maybe I just haven't been keeping up with the current DC Universe- that's it) when you don't recognize a quarter of the people on the screens.

Oh, and happy holidays everybody.

Merry Christmas, everybody.

Oh I'd say this Supergirl innocently, obliviously and relentlessly torments the poor hapless Batgirl. It's so much fun. They are a classic comedy duo.

Happy Holidays everyone.

Thanks for sharing these delights, Anj, they really capture the fun Supergirl can bring - why the heck doesn’t DC actually commission a book from Mike M?

And thanks for another year of great posts, and for everything you do in other other identity!

Merry Christmas everyone!
