Myself and Chris Denton would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thanks to the readers of Zarjaz for your lovely comments, feedback and support regarding our strip 'Zenith Invasion'. Many thanks :)

Happy Christmas, everyone. Enjoy!

Okay, some background...

I have been known to write a spoof song or two, and the idea for this one fell into my head. It was a daunting task, as there's bloody loads of verses, all of which had to be different AND tell a coherent story, just like the original. I am so happy it finally came together, and am proud to share it with you guys. Feel free to share it with any bugger you want to out there (I expect a viral Facebook campaign at the very least!)

Here it is: "Judge Ernie (He Drives The Fastest Lawmaster In The Meg)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eqtuev7n_H4

And for those who will watch it with a puzzled face, watch the original by Benny Hill: "Ernie (The Fastest Milkman In The West)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8e1xvyTdBZI

This got to number 1 in the UK in 1971. appropriately at Christmas  . I've tried to use as many similar or copied lines as would fit into my own story, my favorite being the one where he "fills his judge boots".

As a bonus for new boarders, here's last year's effort, an "unashamed love letter to 2000AD", to the tune of "Hey There Delilah"...

Well merry chuffin' Christmas one and all, from myself and the ABC warriors!





Some of the details aren't quite clear but go here - http://www.darkjimbo.deviantart.com/#/d4j422t - and click 'Download image' to the right of the picture to get a nice big version. Feel free to use for wallpapers or whatever, it may need resizing but should be the right dimensions.

Sorry it's not 2000ad related. By the time this occured to us, it was too late. Still, Goodwill to all and a Merry Christmas from Jon and I.

Just to be clear, the top quality art here is all Jon's work. I wrote it, so the mental issues are mine. The art is all his.

Slight technical difficulty.  Please ignore the man behind the curtain.

Okay, I'm obviously a technical twit.  My picture is too wide to display in full but resizing it doesn't seem to make any more of it show up without a scroll bar.  Any ideas?

Hi everyone,

And after a fantastic 17 days of awesome time for the quality to dip low

A fantastic prescient comment from The Monarch there, seeing as it's my turn now.  This was all meant for the splurge on the 24th but has come forward to fill a gap.

I can imagine the amount of time & effort that has again gone into some of the magnificent creations we've seen this year, but remember that it's a law of nature that for every ace present you get, you will also get some horrible hairy socks you wouldn't want in a million years.  Or to put it another way, the tin of Quality Street has been round the room already and you're looking down at the leftover chewy ones.

Anyway, Merry Christmas to everyone on the board, the team at Rebellion, the writers and artists and letterers and colourers, the old hands and the new blood.  It's a great Board to be on and a "value add" to the comic.  I hope you enjoy these and that they go some way to thanking you all for making the Board a great place to hang out.

Right, now that's out of the way are you ready for a rash of Dash? (Don't worry, I've got some cream you can put on it).  Here we go!

On the first day of Christmas, Dash Decent brought to me -
