Colin, if you are going to swipe- swipe from the best! Cracking work and loving PJ's works as well. The Mean machine is my fave so far.

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

Oh no! Conrad did the text piece in this year's Christmas annual?

Wonderful start to the calendar with fantastic gifts so far, not least the generous prizes offered by Eamonn for cancer research - hope that does well.
Cracking little festive story from abelardsnazz, and I loved SpaceSpinner2000's poem - Dredd shouting out the various modes on his Lawgiver like Santa calls out to his reindeer is inspired!
A wonderfully bonkers dash of humour from shaolin_monkey and Steve Green do indeed help to make the season bright, as does Colin YNWA's adorable Carver & Reagen tale!
And of course, we're being truly spoiled by pauljholden's Dreddcember head portraits - fantastic skills, that man! Looking forward to seeing more...!

As a warmer for my submission on the 6th, here's something I did for the calendar but didn't think it was good enough in the end, so I'll share it here. See you in the morning...,! ;)

Round of applause for Andy Lambert, that's fantastic. Love Archangel Carlos,
and wondering how Mills would react to being cast as the Blessed Virgin! Great to see new characters like Kurtis and Ritterstahl in the lineup too.

Just caught up with this - what an amazing lot of submissions we have! Love the Calvin and Hobbes take off but Andy's nativity really came out amazingly well.

One thing, I thought each day was for the named contributor only. PJ's art is brilliant but could he hold back until the free for all day rather than going on top of other people's days.

Pete might correct me, but I don't recall there ever being a stipulation that only the named contributor can post — people's plans change and there's always been a certain amount of people posting when they get the time. I'm hoping to get something in this year, but my schedule is so chaotic just now I can't commit to a day.

I've been enjoying everyone's contributions this year, and props should be given to PJ for his fantastic daily efforts. The more the merrier I day!

Andy,  I enjoyed the one you posted in this thread too! Imagine waking up Christmas morning to that..

The calendar continues to be a treat. I'm going to print Colin's offering and put it on the fridge. A*.

My bad. Happy to back off and move it somewhere else. (bah humbug, etc)

Nothing against you personally and I love the pics, just that otherwise why bother putting yourself down for a day!

Well, I understood the day thing to be a commitment to ensure there's something fun per day- then people tend to pile in with whatever fun thing they've done - but that might have been me conflating previous advent calendars.

If some admin wants to go in a delete my pics from the thread (please!), I'll create a Dreddcember thread and just post them all in there. Can't guarantee I'll get through the whole month (it's one of the reasons I don't do something in the advent) but I'll do it for as long as I can find the time.
