I still need to do a comics catch-up post but for a quick hit, of all the various advent things going around, my favourite is the Phoenix's Santa-Thon. This is not JUST because Miss Holly's suggestion got chosen to be drawn by Art Monkey (after all, she has form for suggesting curious Santas for Santathons) but because this year, as in previous years, it is shaping up that there will be some wonderfully weird and hilarious suggestions.

I genuinely recommend the Phoenix as a great, broad-ranging comic for kids. It has the funny, but also the emotional, the educational, and the interactive. It's a bit of a bugger to get hold of - my nearest stockist is OK Comics in Leeds - but it's well worth it for kids of any age up to adolescence. They have some great subscription options if you trust me enough to plump for that.

Or if you just want crazy Santas you can get em direct from the struggling artist here.

Oooh, thanks for the Phoenix recommendation. We might try a few issues to see what C makes of it.

You're tempting me too. I have an 8 year old who has run out of Tintin and the Rainbow Orchid and is writing his own screenplay featuring ninjas.
