Over the past few days, Starchie Spudnoggen has been posting pages of a semi-obscure Toybox comic by Steve Purcell (could the two internet personalities somehow be related?)
It starts with nine pages of “The Visitor” from the Dark Horse Hellboy Christmas Special, and ends with Ernie’s Holiday Ditty. (The Toybox story from Fast Forward is up there, too).
This is great, because I haven’t been able to find the Hellboy Christmas special for years. I’m pretty sure I owned it at one point, because the story seems awfully familiar. And as much as I love Sam & Max — which is a lot — I think the original “Toybox” story is my favorite thing Steve’s ever done.
