A Word From One of the Creators

From the desk of Eric Ratcliffe

Hey, we’re all still alive!

Anyways, this strip is awesome for 2 reasons. The first being that it is the official start of our new coloring schedule. (Anna’s doing Wednesdays and Alyssa’s doing fridays) The second being that I have solved the mystery of Santa! Seriously though, while writing this 2 part arc I think this was one of my favorite bits because even so far back as Miracle on 34th Street, I think every person that has encountered and believed in Santa has been curious about just how he can travel through 1 night all across the world.

Of course, there’s a whole bunch of theories: time travel, the Doctor helps him, he’s an alien, Rudolph can freeze time, the rest of his friends help him, Magic…personally I believe that while we may never know the truth it’s certainly one of the more mystical and interesting things about the big jolly guy in red.

The fact that we all grow up just hoping to catch a glimpse at the big guy delivering those presents as well as idolizing him. It’s just fun and probably one of the best things about being a kid. Plus I really really love his hat; whenever I don’t have a Santa hat, I totally buy one.

Merry Christmas, folks!

Today’s recommendation: Epic Chef (; it’s the new cooking show from the Epic Meal Time guys and Harley is a fellow Deadpool fan. I really like the show so far and think it will get better over time.

Next week…has Eric survived the apocalypse? Well you’ll just have to tune in Wednesday to find out!
