A Very Again With the Comics Christmas


"The Sensual Santa" from Eightball #14, by Dan Clowes

If Again With the Comics seems to be chock full of public domain reprints and lazy posts lately, you can blame Santa Claus and his stupid birthday for eating up all my free time and depriving you of my insights once again. Indeed, every year, valuable bitching about old comics time is lost to the annual time and money vacuum known as Christmas.

Sign the cards. Mail the cards. Buy the gifts. No, she already has three of those. Return the gifts. Buy other gifts. Mail the gifts. My God, the lines. Great Mammon, the crowds. Put up the decorations again. Then take the decorations back down! And what all this has to do with begging the magic giant in the sky to please, please bring the sun back, is beyond me. Bah, humbug to Christmas, sir! Humbug indeed!

But now that the big day is here, my heart has grown three sizes, Xmas spirit, magic of giving, etc... In that spirit of sharing and brotherhood, enjoy a cornucopia of holiday reruns, courtesy of Again With the Comics:
