Heroes like Wolverine and Rogue aren't normally the type most picture as adorable; however, the X-Men Pigs actually makes them out to be irresistibly cute.
The X-Men Pigs cartoon drawings were illustrated by Ian of Citric Comics. The talented artist has taken several of Marvel Comics' finest mutants and transformed them into pigs. Some of the familiar faces fans of the series will recognize include Gambit, Cyclops, Professor X and Nightcrawler. While they are tough in the comic book world, these characters have been made over to look harmless and adorable at the same time. It's also nice to see how well Ian has incorporated the costumes on to the illustrations.
The X-Men Pigs illustrations shows a whole different side to the mutants and it works surprisingly well.
