Bah! *munch, munch* Humbug!

If you’re looking for something seasonal to counteract the christmas wharrgarbls, you could do much worse than Roman Dirge’s heartwarmingly disturbing (or perhaps disturbingly heartwarming) It Ate Billy For Christmas.  Dirge’s writing style works much better for me in bite-sized pieces (such as the Lenore books) than in full-on wall-of-text story mode, but damned if he doesn’t do a good job of uncovering all the major tropes of childhood angst, bundling them up, and bringing them to a satisfying (and messy) conclusion.

Bonus points if you’re a Skinny Puppy fan and catch the little allusions thereto in the illustrations.
