Merry Christmas!!  This was the comic I always wanted to finish.  I've had a lot of time on my hands since Hurricane Maria, so why not put my time to good use and work on some long-overdue comics?

UPDATE: FESTIVUS IS DONE!  I wanted to post it on the 23rd but I couldn't finish it on time.  I'm sure it's still the 23rd somewhere, like the East Coast... 

Next Sunday (hopefully): Five Stages of Jury Duty.  

Originally sketched on paper in 2008.
Redrawn, inked and lettered in Manga Studio.
Colored in Photoshop.  

First Comic: fav.me/d2nijk1
Previous Comic: fav.me/d9g0blv

Love how Thailog just wipes off his infection off his arm, as if to say TGC never happened.

Dead.  Cause of death: this comic.

Origin story for this. Every year in the Station Eight comment room, people would ponder what the Manhattan Clan would think of Christmas. Would they celebrate it? Now, I am against the humans with wings concept, and usually this debate ended with the idea that they'd celebrate the Winter Solstice.

Anyway, one year I just got tired of this debate and I asked "Why Christmas? Why not Hanukkah or Kwanza or Festivus!" ... and, well, it went from there.

Well I Got a Grievance For YOU Goliath!


When You were Being Prosecuted for that Robbery You Did'nt Commit, Why Did'nt You Take Xanatos's Offer For a Lawyer? He Could've Gotten you the BEST Lawyer in the State if Not The Country and he would've Crushed Yale in Court  and Got you out of Jail FASTER!

That would’ve made a lot more sense.

Yeah!

Nah, that wouldn't have happened. I mean, it'd be logical... but that was "The Goliath Chronicles" and logic doesn't exist there.

Angela: "Look! Half our family is evil! Or clones! Or evil clones..."

Thailog "I resent this comment, sis! I'm..."
Angela "An evil clone?"
Thailog: "I... yes."
Angela "I rest my case"
Goliath "This is your fault, Xanatos! I should have know that sending Angela to nightime college to study law was going to bite us in the donkey."
Fox "I think you mean 'ass', dear."

Angela: "Well someone has to look after this family legally, and Father can barely handle a computer."
Goliath: "I get on fine. I was wrecking computers when you were still young, you know."
Angela: "That hasn't changed, father."

Owen, deadpan "Nothing so dramatic. only mild corporate dealing worth a few billions dollars between Scarab Tech and a startup called NVidia. We've got several models of computer pieces between now and 2020 to be sold on specific time, playing with scarcity, offer and demand"

That's so fucked up and funny:rofl:

How is everything over there? I know there are still a lot of areas where there is still no electricity and running water...

We got power back two weeks after the Hurricane.  We were lucky where I live.  There are some places in Puerto Rico that still don't have power.

Oh my goodness! 

As Goliath will say, "Jalapena!"
