Despite the fact that a good chunk of my floorspace is taken up with long boxes and bookshelves, I consider myself more of a "reader" than a "collector," except for two things I hoard shamelessly: Christmas comics and Abraham Lincoln appearances. If I see Santa Claus or our 16th President in a comic book, I buy it -- no questions asked.
And as a result, I've picked up my share of Christmas stories that are truly bizarre -- and considering this is a weird little sub-genre that routinely features stories about Ultron being reprogrammed to give out toys, Batman stopping all crime in Gotham City by singing "Joy to the World" with the GCPD choir, and a Jack Kirby tale entitled "Santa's War Against the Seal Men," that's saying something. So this year, I've rifled through the comics under my tree to bring you The Five Most Insane Christmas Comics of All Time!
Earlier this month, ComicsAlliance brought you some yuletide cheer from one of our favorite artists when I put up the best Santas of his 2009 Santa Sketchfest. But like I said then, it's a yearly tradition, and this years have somehow managed to be even

Though the menace that is Krampus traditionally taunts/beats/drags children off to meet the devil during the first two weeks of December, it's always a good idea to maintain vigilance throughout the entire holiday season - especially if you're a ComicsAlliance reader. If you read our stuff, we can only imagine the kind of comic book content you indulged in over the co
Nothing quite says Christmas like Santa Claus battling against an ancient order of Japanese assassins!
At least, that's the premise behind this month's Twitter Art Jam theme, as suggested by Rusty Shackles (former artist of ComicsAlliance's own Great Comics That Never Happened), and while it might not be quite as traditional
In our recurring feature, ComicsAlliance writer Chris Sims and a rotating cast of talented artists imagine a finer world to bring you a look at the Best Comics Ever that Did Not, Will Not, and occasionally Can Not Happen! For December, we're switching it up a little to bring you a GCTNH Holiday Special every week 'til Christmas! This week, artist Nate Bellegarde (Hector Plasm) returns to GCTNH with the story that rocked the Chris
I've said it before, but I'm a guy who straight up loves a good Christmas special, especially when it comes to the cartoons from my childhood. I mean, I'm the type of person who owns the Rankin/Bass specials on DVD so that I can watch Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town whenever the mood strikes instead of waiting to catch 'em during their annual airing.
