Merry Christmas from me and The Venture Bros

Feliz Navidad! Thanks to the good folks over at Robot 6, I now have a link to every single Venture Bros. X-Mas song, including the new one they just let out today! Why, it's a Christmas Miracle!

Wherever you are, I hope you're enjoying a lovely holiday. Now, I'm off to eat my traditional X-Mas Tamales & Turkey with the family and hope I get gifts relating to Batman.

Merry Whatever, everybody!

Venturing Towards Christmas

On this quiet Winter Solstice, I wish you joy. And nothing brings more joy to me than hearing the cast of the Venture Bros singly treacly faux-carols!

(They do a new one every year but I can't seem to find any newer ones, alas.)

Speaking of horrible new Christmas songs, comedian/actor Patton Oswalt discusses what all bored kids did at some point to Alvin & The Chipmunks Christmas Song here (a tad NSFW due to language):

(I kid. Mostly. I actually loved that song growing up but Demonic Dave is always funny.)

While neither of these videos have the slightest relation to comic books, I do hope they amuse all of you. Perhaps Santa will see fit to bring me some comics for X-Mas and I'll blog about them then.

More importantly, I sincerely hope you all are having a lovely holiday season. I suggest you go here for an appropriately geeky Holiday wish of joy.

So, in closing, Merry Whatever And A Happy New Year!

Comics Interweb - You Have The Ability To Inspire Great Joy

So, check these awesome images out! (both courtesy of Ragnell)

The above is from an upcoming Marvel Series called Girl Comics. This series will feature some of the best and brightest female talents in the biz jamming on whatever they think is awesome. Clearly, this is great news (just ignore the rabble-rousers in the comments section at the above link to stay in a good mood).

And also? We all know about the Disney/Marvel merger by now but this giant picture by T Campbell and John Waltrip is beyond stupendous. I especially like Emma Frost and the Disney Princesses expressions.

Quick links to amuse and possibly horrify

This excellent part of a series about characters nobody likes coincidentally numbers a goodly number of Chris Claremont's kinky fetishes. All of which are troubling, of course, but none as bad as a certain reoccurring theme of Mr. John Byrne (yes, he's done that more than once). It kinda blew my mind that Magma was your entry character in that first Ultimate Alliance-y X-Men video game instead of Jubilee or Kitty Pryde.

Also, they're making a documentary about Grant Morrison's life. Hell, I'd watch it.

And in the spirit of the Season, Chris Sims has collected his 12 favorite DC Comics' Christmas Stories. Man, that Impulse story was delightful. I miss wacky Impulse.
