(12 Days of Sweet) Christmas is Canceled


I thought I had several good ideas for posts, but I think my idea of 12 Days of Sweet Christmas was too ambitious. I may still post a few of the holiday M&M things I come up with, but my heart (and creativity) just aren't in it like I thought they would be. I will leave you with these two cool Marvel Christmas pages I found though.

Ash Wednesday - Hellbillies

Hillbillies and rural folk to tend have a bad rep in horror flicks. Don't believe me, look at Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the Hills Have Eyes, and the Wrong Turn series. It seems the American wilderness is full of mutant hillbilly psychos. Tucker and Dale Versus Evil played nicely with this cliche'. Expect to see those two in a future Ash Wednesday post.

Evil Dead: Hail to the King featured deadite hillbillies, known as hellbillies. The Evil Dead remake also included creepy hillbillies, although they are revealed to be working against the evil of the book. Your Army of Darkness needs cannibal hillbillies too.

12 Days of Sweet Christmas - Killer Snowmen

As evil plastic-based aliens and sorcerers have been proving for years, frostbite is not the only danger winter and snow brings. Killer snowmen seem silly initially, but are no laughing matter. Unless damaged by extreme heat or fire, they just keep coming.

12 Days of Sweet Christmas - Christmas Elves

Santa wouldn't be anything with his elves. These diminutive fey keep Santa's operation at the north pole going. Most modern elves are tech whizzes and a few have been known to leave the North Pole and make gear for vigilantes, or if rumors are true... villains.

12 Days of Sweet Christmas - S.A.N.T.A.'s

How does Santa deliver all of those toys in one night? While the old elf does use some magic, in modern nights he mainly relies on his S.A.N.T.A.'s (Seasonal Awesome Ninja Teleporting Androids). He also learned to never let elves hopped up on gingerbread and Christmas gluehwein name things.

The high tech stealth androids have the ability to silently move at incredible speeds and teleport short distances. They even have the ability to transform materials into presents and Christmas decorations. 

Of course this means if some dastardly villain was able to gain control of them, they would have an army that would make perfect thieves....

Tabletop Props: Covered Wagon Kickstarter (Final Hours)

Just a quick reminder that you guys should check out the Tabletop Props: Covered Wagon kickstarter. The project has been funded and has about 35 hours left (as of the time I'm posting this). The extras have changed since the last time I posted about it and the paint job on the battle-worn variation has changed. Right now I'm locked in for three with the early bird price. I'm getting a gypsy and a battle-worn and my friend Remy is grabbing the classic.
