THE CHRISTMAS BONANZA BEGINS! Starting today, Far Out There goes into DAILY updates. That's a new page EVERY day from now until December 25, PLUS new Voting Incentive comics Tuesday and Friday! (speaking of which, go see the new one!) Just my little gift to you guys!

So, with that out of the way, OH SNAP, WHAT'S GOING ON? Why are our beloved zombie children and mad scientist mama *gasp* STEALING CHRISTMAS? Or, better yet, how exactly could you say that an NOT look like the bad guys?

...well, that part's actually not that hard to imagine. There's actually a longstanding tradition of comic books having covers where the heroes LOOK like they've gone nuts, but the proper context renders the same event downright mundane (and, usually, looks very different from what was depicted on the cover anyway) Why, there's a whole website about that stuff... but I can't really mention the name without endangering this website's all-ages status.

And, sadly, I must report that this story is NOT a rhyming Dr. Seuss parody. I thought about it, but it just would have been too hard to write (at least, given the time frame involved)

Only half of 'em will be as... "rustic" as this. As with last year, the second half of the Christmas stuff will be standalone pictures rather than a running story. Therefore, I'll be able to make 'em look better than some kid's crayon doodles (well, sort of, at least)

They certainly look pleased with themselves up there...

Ichabod's right.
And still very Doctor Who-esque.

It's Bridget and Alphonse, I don't care if you did it with stick figures. I do like this style though, its ... nostalgic.

Now to read all the other Christmas comics, again!

Don't encourage him... XD

It's funny you should mention that, actually. The first time I pulled a Pencils Only stunt like this was with the first Bridget and Alphonse Christmas comic, and it was an attempt to evoke the look of an old children's book.

...and kind of failed at that, if you ask me. However, I also discovered that I can't pump out a page a day AND properly ink/color pages AND properly handle the storytelling elements. Best I can do is two of those at at time.
