Merry Christmas from the Etherington Brothers!

Dear readers!

We Etheringtons wish you all a very, VERY merry Christmas! To capture the feeling we get at this time of year, we turn to the great Bill Watterson, whose skills for illustrating the simple pleasures in life as they really are were never greater than when Calvin and Hobbes were knee deep in freshly fallen snow, or curled up by a toasty fire after a hard day's adventuring! There is no gift greater than the company of a friend with whom to go exploring!

Lorenzo and Robin

Way back in January, The Phoenix comic took to the air for its inaugural flight.  Every week since, the adventures of Bunny Vs Monkey, Pirates of Pangaea, Cogg and Sprokit, Simon Swift, Von Doogan, Corpse Talk, Star Cat, Long Gone Don, and DOZENS of equally amazing marvels have flown through countless letterboxes across the country and into the minds of our audience - the kids.
