The Last Christmas

Those great guys over at PA have done it again, other then bringing in a wallop of toys and cash for kids at children's hospitals all over the States (http://www.childsplaycharity.org/). They have also crafted a timeless Christmas tale for a new generation. Beware, it includes Cthulhu. They have posted the first few pages, and the rest are forthcoming, presumably it will also be published in a physical format. I think this just proves me right, that terrifying and horrible things are great topics for children's books. I originally wanted these guys (in my imagination) to illustrate my stupid Spinal Fairy story, which still makes me chuckle (worry about my sanity, but chuckle.) I mean this is raw fairy tail material, dating right back to those crazy Brother Grim who fed Grandma to the wolf, and stuffed a bunch of fat Hungarian children into the oven. Over time these tales got toned down as kids got wussy, but at their heart they were bizarre and strange.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled program.
