Well, everyone – you might have thought that I’d miss this one for the holiday, but no, sir!  I have done the page!  Oh yes.  Did you see this one coming last week?  Yeah, I bet you did.  But still, I like how this one progressed from the last sequence.  I couldn’t tell you why, exactly, but drawing these scenes in the UNA hospital area is really interesting and enjoyable for me.

So anyway.  To all Christians out there, and anyone else who celebrates it, this is a pretty important holiday.  I know it may not be a holiday that appeals to everyone, these days, and I know, also, that it’s not one that everyone observes, but I do, and it’s very important to me, since for me, it’s the commemoration  of the dawn of the Messianic Age, and pretty much one of the critical defining events of Western history and religion.  And whatever you think of the dogmas surrounding it, or the various ways in which we humans have fallen short of the goals that it represents to us, I think we can all agree that peace, compassion, and mercy towards our fellow men are worth struggling towards, and that struggle goes forward for another year.

I’ll be off first thing in the morning to visit my family for most of the week.  I hope you all will find time to enjoy some peace and quiet.  And I hope, also, that I’ve managed to bring you all a little bit of entertainment this year, as well.  I’ve enjoyed it immensely.  I hope you have, too.

Merry Christmas.
