Cool!  Turns out a setting in Chrome was stopping her seeing it.

Glad Shako was a hit! It's great what you can do with a cheap Xmas decoration, a biro, and red paint!   :D

I was going to get Satanus in there too, but it was starting to get a bit busy.

Just read the story from Abelardsnazz - nice one!  Short, sweet, and given Dredd's ice cold character cracking over these last years, another good example of that!

I do like PJ’s Mean 👍🏻 - there seems to be an age to him (old man mean)

It is indeed beginning to feel a lot like Christmas - this advent calendar is looking great!

Eamonn - the bookclub is always a highlight (and a regular part of my work week). Fun to see how my favorites stack up against others.

Steve - Snowpocalypse War is a pun worthy of Dredd! I wonder, does Walter the Snowbot have a support role...

Snazz - I enjoyed the short story, Christmas Dredd's are always a favorite of mine, that old softie.

PJ - Awesome entries! I especially like the gruesome City of the Damned Dredd... after all, red is a great Christmas colour.
As for requests, Anderson might be an obvious one, so maybe Sov judge Kazan or one of my new favorites, Heston?

Fantastic Calvin parody today - I recently came across my collection of books and reread them after a long time getting dusty and ending in a few laugh out loud moments but those last 3 windows look very familiar (&  Funny).
Looking forward to the rest of the Advent. Keep up the good work everyone 👍🏻

Oh gosh just realised I didn't add an 'after Watterson' as I have in the past - these are essentially direct lifts from specific Calvin and Hobbes cartoons just 2000ad'd up.

All humour is almost entirely stolen!

Conrad - awesome poem! Lots of great references, and very long too - we appreciate the effort! There is no way Fox reads the whole thing, this is the text story of poems  :D

Colin - Awesome strip! A Calvin/Flesh crossover was inevitable considering all those Dinosaur! Great work!
