A Buckingham Family Christmas

The comic size format doesn't do that much justice, so here's the big-ass version: Worked on this off and on for several months. Got it in under the wire, per my style. XD Hope you all have a very merry Christmas! Will have another comic up ASAP. Love you. -Chris

  1. Merry Christmas to all and have a Happy Holiday. Thanks again and perfect timing in this picture. It was worth it. And First Bitches!!!

    1. No, I would think that the Sister’s Council would overrule you with the resident THOT over there who shall not be named because of the Beetle breakfast drink rule.

    1. Someone tell Tarra she can’t get extra credit in Christmas either, no matter how irresponsibly large her 3D-printed tree is!

    1. “Restraining order? Those are only valid in the jurisdiction in which they’re issued! Once he leaves the Pole, his ass is mine.”

  2. *happy clappy* So many details to explore, this is amazing! Thank you very much, Chris, and I hope you’re enjoying the holiday.
    Just the eight, I mean seven, sisters together. Why is Quinn side-eyeing Cinnamon, I wonder? Who let Anise get away with that stocking (never mind the gun)? Nothing says Christmas-time quite like Die Hard! Pumpkin’s outfit is superb – I am imagining her shoes to be point-toed felt numbers.

        1. I’m guessing the gift contains a few Santa cookie crumbs and an oily spot that’s the right shape for a Santa cookie.

  3. Santa should be done with the lower 48 in a few minutes I think.

    Sooooo…

  4. Oh geez. I’m flattered, but I think we should just stay friends.

    Alternatively: Sorry Chris, but I already have my eye on someone with a prettier face, better figure, and access to more advanced technology.

    Also, if anybody asks I never doubted your ability to get this done on time.

  5. To my dear friends from the chat, to those whom I have briefly met, to those whom I have yet to encounter, and to Mr. Rusche who has been here with us from the start. Merry Christmas to all and may a happy New Year soon follow. May we be a gift unto the world and a joy unto others so that they may join in the wonders of our adventures as it unfolds into something to magnificent to be remembered throughout the ages.

        1. I would certainly hope so given hiw much that poor SCREAMING RAT was coughing. I certainly hope the sjaven plague can be remedied by Heimlich maneuver. The Skaven problem in general could hopefully be solved by a Hindenburg maneuver in every corridor of the underway around Skavenblight and Hellpit.

        2. Too bad Lucius and Ahriman didn’t do a Special this year. I really hoping Sly Marbo would make a repeat appearance and I hoping Fabius Bile got the kinks worked out on Ahriman 3.0.

        3. I am surprised we have not seen a Nurglenacht given how jolly the pestilent father is around this time of year…and every time of the year.

        4. Me and CHAOS are good, have fun with the Corpes Emperor! Oh wait, fun has been outlawed in the Imperium!

        5. Why the Slayer Engineer Malakai Makaisson of course. Inventor of the steam ship Unsinkable (which sank), the airship Indestructible (which exploded), and the airship Spirit of Grungni (which he wanted to name Unstoppable but was overruled by his patrons for reasons that elude him).

  6. And it’s time to feel bad for Juniper, again, as somehow, she gets the smallest stocking.

    …but why in the world is Anise’s double the size of anyone else’s?

    1. Heh, first comment of 2019.

      On a more relevant note I can’t quite figure out what Tarra’s expression is supposed to convey. Satisfaction at how her machine is working? Irritation at it not going faster? Worry that she’ll be called away for a last minute rescue of New Year’s Day?

      1. I’m not sure how you got that impression given that it’s repeatedly come up that I’m ahead of the rest of you.

        Plus there’s my comments on my Pennsylvanian excursions. Not to mention my mentioning that I drove through Ohio to get to Indianapolis which I know you saw because you responded to my mentioning driving past that one guy’s home of Dayton.

        Oh, speaking of Ohio I’ll be ending her “always a bridesmaid” status in regards to card tournaments this weekend. So wish me luck.

        1. Sorry, that’s a personal in-joke. In my head I’ve tended to personify Ohio as a pretty temptress trying to lure me in with her obscenely cheap gas prices. And since I’ve never been to a tournament there and have only ever passed through on my way to Indiana I’ve said to myself that Ohio’s always a bridesmaid never a bride.

          Fortunately there is a tournament there this weekend that I will be attending and hope to do quite well at. So Ohio will get to become a blushing bride at long last.

        2. Well Ohio remains a shameless flirt. I swear with gas prices this low it’s like she’s charging nothing at all… nothing at all (Stupid sexy Ohio.)

          I’ll also add that I’ve realized that Ohio is kind of the Helen of Troy of America since America’s desire to have her lead to the French and Indian War and subsequently the American Revolution.

          Anyway, while my first outing with Ohio did not result in a show stopping success that left her short of breath like I would have liked I was Most Honorable so I think I left a good impression.

          Although I did get a knife pulled on me. So that was a thing that happened.

  7. Ok serious question: I’m taking my family to Disney next week. That’s a little over an hour away from Lakeland. Is that a wide enough radius to be safe from any Buckingham-related disasters?

    1. I think that depends on your definition of ‘Buckingham-related’ since the Wall Walker is in D52 and thus associated with some of the Buckinghams so the radius could extend at least as far as the Yucatan. Plus Tarra has a pilot licence so her ability to get to places quickly should not be underestimated.
