Merry Christmas to one and all! I hope you’re having a great time out there, wherever you are and whatever you’re celebrating, and that you’re with those who matter most to you whoever they may be! Make merry and be joyous, and I wish you all good cheer!

Please also spare a thought for the families of the victims of the Glasgow George Street Crash, who will no doubt be feeling less festive at this moment in time – We grieve with them for this tragedy, we remember the loss of their loved ones, and we hope that they find the strength to carry on.

Anyway, please enjoy this festive piece of artwork, showcasing original Elf Blood character Mara, who hasn’t really been seen much as of late – My, how she has grown up in the intervening five years! Here she is modelling either the traditional Father Christmas outfit or a more modern Santa’s Elf costume, plus a sneak preview at a new hairstyle – keep your eyes peeled next year, folks!

Do check in tomorrow for the next page of the Hands of Mara arc! In the meantime, have an excellent Christmas, and I shall see you anon!
