12/27/2014 -- Christmas Is Over For Another Year -- Creepsville Marches On

Yep, the big holiday of the year is over... and you really know it is when all those decorations start coming down. The plus side of that is how it makes our house feel larger when all those lights, ornaments, and other decor are down and put away.

Once again, I'm up way too early, but I really seem to have my brain rewired to do so, getting each week's installment of Creepsville posted.

Meanwhile, Colette gave me a spanking new, nifty-rrific scanner... something I have needed for quite awhile. This is going to make working on the Creepsville Collected book so much easier to get done, not to mention fun (yes, I did say "fun" while referring to scanning).

Oh, and though the holidays will officially close on New Years Day, the Wednesday updates will continue.

So, here's this week's page. Click on the image to see a larger, easy to read version. Have a great and safe New Years celebration, too!

A Favorite Christmas Super-Hero Story

A number of great Christmas stories have been done in comic books through the years, and this one is definitely one of my favorites. Paul Chadwick, creator of the Concrete comic, wrote this story, which is a very humanistic story for this genre. That has always been one of Chadwick's strengths. It touches on one of the most important aspects of Christmas, bringing together those who need help with others who can provide such. Superman is the superhero star, one of the few characters whose strength allows him to hold the muscles in check and address the real issue at hand. The title is perfect, though the hand of God evident there is only slightly used, carefully used.

Merry Christmas, everyone.

12/22/2014 - Christmas Comic Book Covers

With Christmas almost upon us, I thought I had better do as promised and put up lots of additional Christmas stuff. The images I'm presenting here are all covers to comic books celebrating Christmas. I have barely scratched the surface of how many of these type covers have been published through the years. Click on the images to see larger versions.

In really don't expect this to be difficult for you to figure out yourself who all these characters are, but there are some you might not have seen (For example: Dennis the Menace comics haven't been published in years). Check back tomorrow for more Christmas stuff.
