It’s that time of year again where the bravest of us venture to malls filled to the brim with over-caffeinated parents trying to get that last talking Elmo plush. Or maybe you’re trying your best not to drink too much eggnog (what’s really in that stuff anyway) while suppressing an overwhelming desire to snicker at your girlfriend’s mother’s overly festive sweater. I don’t know about you guys, but I would rather spend my holiday season knocking back a few cold ones and picking the brains of some of the most talented people working in the industry. Wait a minute, what did I just hear? Was that a jolly fat man and eight tiny reindeer ? Not quite, but it’s a holy Christmas miracle, Batman. The fine peeps at Boom! Studios are giving me exactly what I wanted for the holidays! Check out their latest announcement.
