We all need a little pick-me-up, so how's this?
A lovely picture of Ice, a.k.a. Tora Olafsdotter, looking all cute and adorable and holding an even cuter and adorable-er baby seal. Awww. Look at the cute little expression on his face! And his cute little flippers! And Tora's holding him so gently so he's not all scared. Wouldn't it be nice if comics had more scenes like this in them? Who doesn't love cute little furry animals being held by sweet, nice superheroines? (Judd Winick, I guess. And maybe Satan.)
You know, this is much better than scenes like in last week's Generation Lost where Ice's outer self freezes off revealing her deep-down-off-the-chain ice elemental/bad girl center. Let the Freudian analysis commence on that one.
Actually, forget the analysis and just look at Tora holding a baby seal. It's a lot more relaxing this way.
Hooray for denial!
