- It looks like the next page wont be finished in time, it may or may not be up before the New Year though.
I wanted to thank everyone who reads this comic for allowing it to continue for a whole year so far. I wouldn't have been able to do it without you guys and your comments!
When I started this, I had a lot of content planned but I really wasnt sure how long it would continue for if no one read it. I was really happy that it managed to get such a decent reader-base in just a year. I wanted to draw something much better for this, but I didnt have much time so I just went with a simpler style, although I kind of like how it turned out.

Darwin's riding a White Boomer - from the Australian version of Santa who rides a sleigh pulled by six of them. (A Boomer being a male kangaroo.) Australia still has santa with reindeers too; I guess it's kind of like the Easter Bilby, which doesnt actually replace the easter bunny here, just acts as an alternative, although this seems more for fun while the Bilby thing is a little more serious seeing as the purpose is to try to save them. Anyway, I'm pretty sure kids at most primary schools in Australia still sing "Six White Boomers" around Christmas time; they were when I was volunteering there last year.

I hope you have a Happy Holidays! I'll be momentarily returning to Australia for mine.

Merry Christmas Torino!
Back when I was in primary school, my mature friends and I always sang the song with our own lyrics. Though to be honest, a pure white kangaroo would be kinda freaky in real life xD.
Also obligatory Adelaide comment. I'm amazed she can sleep with everyone, especially Sydney making such a racket.

Please please please do more character art like this. I love this art so hard that it makes me pee myself a little bit. I love this.
