I've been writing full-time for ComicsAlliance for almost a year now, but it was only a few weeks ago that I realized what may be the most important thing I've discovered since I quit my day job: Since I work from home, I can watch two hours of Walker, Texas Ranger every single day. And that has been a life
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
Every week, ComicsAlliance Senior Writer Chris Sims steps up put his knowledge to the test by answering your comics and comics culture questions! This week, it's a holiday spectacular, as we bring you The Ask Chris(tmas) Special!

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
As anyone who knows me can attest, I'm a pretty big fan of Christmas, and this time of year, I start going through my set of holiday traditions.

It's probably pretty obvious at this point that I'm a fan, but one of my favorite things about Cameron is that every year, he takes suggestions from his readers to create an artistic Advent Calendar, counting down to Christmas with a series of permutations on Santa Claus, from the bizarre to the hilarious to the downright awesome. This year's Santa Sketchfest is going on now over at Cameron's site, but to get into the spirit, I went back and collected my fifteen favorites from 2009!
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! First up, artist Dean Trippe (Butterfly and Project Rooftop) joins us for a trip back to the Silver Age of Christmas Comic
This week sees the release of the "DC Holiday Special 2009," and while this is their latest shot at a Christmas special, it's far from their first. In fact, DC's been doing holiday comics for a full 70 years now, ever since Superman first teamed up with Santa to encourage kindness and generosity in "The Christmas Adventure!"
So with seven solid decades of holiday fun, some of them are bound to rise to the top, which is why we've asked ComicsAlliance contributor and Christmas comic aficionado Chris Sims to rifle through the long boxes at the North Pole and
