"It’s the Most Wonderful Time Of The Year... For EVIL!

The miserly villain Doctor Scrooge hides behind legal technicalities as he steals from the pockets of the impoverished... explorer-gone-mad Jacques Frost preys upon the peoples of the north with his resurrected prehistoric murder monsters... the immortal Baroness Blackheart quests for the Elixir of Life, threatening to destroy all foundations of happiness for mankind...

... and it’s up to Nick Saint—Codename: Secret Santa!—his Reindeer Men, and you to save the holidays from their vile clutches!

Spirit of the Season is a holiday treat from the minds of Evil Hat Productions and Atomic Sock Monkey Press. Featuring characters and new rules compatible with both Spirit of the Century and Truth & Justice, Spirit of the Season is your ticket to two-fisted holiday pulp adventure!"

"Onli Studios is reviving the seriously ill fanzine from back in da day. Future Funk... will explore the best in the Black Age of Comics and more. It is a 'zine for the independent, a pricing guide, a calendar for the contemporary arts. Various independent writers, artists, collectors, fans, students, or educators... contribute to da funk.
