I normally stay far away from holiday tie-in comics. You will never see a “Science of Love” post on Valentine’s Day or “Why Turkey Turns You Into a Lizard Person” for Thanksgiving. But last week I was at Target and couldn’t help but notice that the nutcrackers they sold wouldn’t be of any use as an actual nut cracker. Comparisons were made, dog breeds were thrown under the bus (metaphorically, you monster) and now we have today’s comic. Sadly, this won’t be the last seasonal comic this winter. But I think you’ll enjoy what I’m cooking up next.

Hey, Boxplot fans, recently I set up a Patreon as a way for readers to support my comic work. If you’re an avid reader and want a backstage look at how all this stuff comes together, You can subscribe for as little as $2 a month. At higher levels you even get new books like OTP as they’re released. Check it out!
