I love "space cloaks." I've loved them ever since the cosmic superhero Quasar donned his third costume in the early 90s. To me a "space cloak" shows off the scale at which a magic user or cosmic-themed hero operates, and since Miranda is an archmage and has the spotlight in these last few comics of 2010, I felt it was appropriate to showcase the true extent of her magical power by setting her against the backdrop of the vast, awesome grandeur of the universe.
Why so much space talk today? It may have something to do with the lunar eclipse on this day, the winter solstice. And it's a full moon tonight, too! This is a rare cosmic event so be sure to head outside and give it a look if you can!
Of course, it's forecast to be cloudy and snowy tonight in my area, so I'm gonna miss it.
I wish I had a space cloak.
That all from me for now.
EDIT: The lunar eclipse happened overnight between the 20th and the 21st... and it was so cloudy that I missed it.
