I got a wonderful e-mail the other day from Cynthia Shelton, who lives on a boat with her dog and makes comics about it!. Not am I only very envious of her boat and trying to figure out a way to go visit her on the California coast, the comics have a real warmth to them that makes me want to go and trawl through all her archives.
A great Shiny Shelf review of David O'Connell's Tozo comic. And have a look at the daily panels he's posting over at tozocomic!
Russian Christmas postcards from outer space
Lovely Scott Campbell drawings
Nicola Linder has made some fab Very Literal Dresses.
(Thanks for those three, web designer Dan Fone)
Some very dodgy Santa photos
Garen Ewing just posted a link over on the Super Comics Adventure Squad to Patrice Aggs' new comic, Midnite Owl.
Some great things going on with Stitch and Bitch London. Read a hilarious interview with Derek the Sheep here! (And you can win a signed copy of his book!)
Morris the Mankiest Monster reviews!

Lovely pacey rhyme and bright illustrations will make this a favourite for years.
I can't believe I'm posting a cute kitty video, but here you go:
