Hey, Colin: I didn't know you were an art talent. Great job rendering a kid Torque.
Frank would know.

Gosh that's very kind but I'm no more than a doodler. Especially when compared to many on these parts.

I've been waiting to do this one since I started doing these Calvin and Hobbes mash-ups. But was waiting until I'd run out of X-Mas ones I could rip off!

The Christmas Charity raffle results are in, and are covered in the video, unfortunatly the video didn't record properly for the draw but hopefully you trust me ( and my wife!)

https://youtu.be/XI1HzusMP34

1st prize the 2000AD notebook and pen go to Damian and Helena Edwardson
2nd the Carlos portrait goes to Craig Dawson
3rd the signed Turbo Jones goes to Sheridan and Rachael
4th the John Higggins prints go to Kevin Symonds
And 5th the Dredd pin goes to star of stage and screen, Jamie Beamish

We raised £362 with the raffle bringing the grand total to a stonking £9791.44
Getiing very close to the £10k target I set myself for this project.

Thanks all for all the donations and shares, and congratulations to the winners. I'll be in touch.

I love your Calvin & Hobbes / prog mashups.  You've absolutely nailed Watterson's style again.

Colin that was brilliant! Even though I dribbled tea on my trousers laughing it was worth it.

Great stuff everyone.

I will be along later with mine. Been under the weather over the last few days with a very bad cold so had to abandon my main piece and go for something simpler.

In the meantime if anyone has something ready and wants to double up for today, fine by me.

I put a wee bit of writing up to fill the gap.

Thanks Darren. I should've added 'after Buscema' as my effort was based on this image from 1974. No doubt the text in my post didn't make much sense to some.



I'm was (still am) a fan of these old giant Marvel treasury editions especially the Xmas themed ones.

This was my second less involved piece. Had to put my main one on the back burner. I'm kind of running out of ideas for these advent calendars as I've been submitting at least one a year since the first one.

Would have liked to have tightened up the inks on mine but at 5am it was time to upload.

Great day for the calendar. I can't seem to see the crossword though and I'm keen to do it.

There's a link in the post above the one with Dredd-inna-Santa-hat image, which I love.

While I didn't get the reference - never really been one for the superhero comics - I absolutely love your version.
