* Hulk reject crass, cobbled-together, consumer-driven holidays.

* the writer Chris Sims has a list of 10 worst comics-related holiday gifts up here. There are some lousy gifts out there. You know what's sort of odd now that I think of it? I never got comics anything when I was a kid. I think maybe I got some rubber-dart Spider-Man web shooters for a birthday from another kid, and one year my best pal bought me some old X-Men comics from the local pawn shop, but as far as my parents making comics part of the things that were purchased for me, that never happened.

* a small group of good-looking comics publications. For some reason, I thought Sunny was going to end with the second volume.

* finally, here's Zainab Akhtar at some length on Thought Bubble, which according to the way the comics Internet works was 10,000 years ago.
