“Andy Williams had one. Cliff Richard too. And by golly we’re ten times better than Cliff Richard. So fall on your knees, hear the angels voices – it’s the Comic Cast Christmas Special! Where, from beside a roaring fire, we review Lint by Chris Ware, The Little Prince by Joann Sfar, My New New York Diary by Julie Doucet and Michel Gondry as well as the latest in Irish comics – Windells’ Supernatural Showcase by Gar Shanley and Cathal Duggan, Finn and Fish by Leeann Hamilton, Eclectic Micks Sketchbook Volume 2, Something Wonderful Eats Babies by Tommie Kelly and Other Work by John Cullen. After dinner we’ll be watching (and reviewing) A Town Called Panic on DVD and MegaMind 3D. And what would Christmas be without family? Cartoonist extraordinaire Bob Byrne joins us direct from his villa in Spain to talk about his latest book Dr. Moku’s Hiragana Mnemonics and his current online comic saga Today we worship Michael Landon.”
