Potentially my X-mas card this year...

Andrew Dobson is a talented artist with a truckload of ideas. As one can tell with the majority of witty comics. Not only are they well drawn, but very well written, and "X-Mas 2010" is no exception.

Everyone knows the Earth is in bad shape (for those who don't, get off the Internet), and this art piece paints a perfect picture of how the future of Christmas could become if things don't change.
As with many of his comics and artwork, Andrew combines a sort of Garfield character design with numerous other cartoon styles and does a great job at developing his own style for his characters. They look nice, they're witty, and just overall a pleasure to see time and time again.
Andrew's technique is straightforward. Cell-shade combined with a random brush for the Christmas tree. It would have been even better if he would have added a sort of crayon-ish effect to the tree, but it works.
Bottom line, this is a classic. Beautiful art combined with a witty dialog is what every art and comic observer likes.

Please revisit this series!
Danny can praise Wind Waker HD, thanks to its updated graphics. But then Spot could complain that it's worse than Nintendo's other Zelda ports, due to the loss of the Tingle Tuner and lack of new or extra content.

I have a question to ask you: Is spot a cat or a dog? In the first few comics, he looks like a dog and sometimes you refer him as a dog... but then I get a full picture of him and he looks very much like a cat. Could you clear this up please?

I've never referred to him as a dog.
