Every Picture Tells a Story 1/10/19

I know I've posted this picture before, but since it's really the only picture I have of the man, it will have to do.

You've been gone nearly 24 years, but I still miss you, old man.

Holidaze 12/23/18

Paul Dini's Jingle Belle makes her return in this festive one-shot which, as usual, brings the laughs, but also the feels.

Jing is the rambunctious, rebellious daughter of Santa Claus who is pressed into service every year to help Santa deliver toys to good girls and boys all over the world. Jing, like most acting-out teens, would much rather hang out with her friends (who include a witch and a cowgirl--y'know, like most of our friends do) than do anything her dad wants her to do, but often winds up doing good, in spite of herself (and her parents).

This time around, Jingle Belle has to face off against the mysterious, powerful Queen of Toys, who goes 'round the world to gather all the homemade playthings that get discarded each year. The Queen has a plan this year--to take down the Kringle family and make Christmas her own! Only one person could stand in her way. Who could it be? Aw, you guessed...

Writer Paul Dini (author of many a Batman tale) knows how to deliver the funny and the heart, imbuing the bratty Jing with just enough caring and sensitivity to melt even the most frozen soul, with Nicoletta Baldari on the artwork and Stephanie Buscema (granddaughter of comics legend John Buscema) handling the eye-catching cover. (See above.)
