For the first year in several years, Whovians around the world will not be gathering ’round their television set in their Christmas pajamas to watch another Doctor Who Christmas Special. They only have to wait a few more days for New Years Day, but still…

HOWEVER, there is a solution that does not involve real-life time travel. That solution is Titan Comics’ Doctor Who: The Thirteenth Doctor Holiday Special #1!

Kickstarter/Indiegogo of the Week: The Gingerbread Gang

It’s Christmas in Julyyyyyyy It’s Christmas in Julyyyyyyy. Bring on the Gingerbread cookies… wait… are they…. aaaaaargh*

OK, that’s my brain right now this. Sorry, not sorry.

Every year, since well before The Rat Hole launched, I’ve done a series of holiday reviews to celebrate the winter season.

The Bad

The Summary

Geek-o-Rama’s Geeky Gift Guide Part 2

– Kotobukiya Harley Quinn Bishoujo Statue
List price of $59.99
Official Kotobukiya Store

I absolutely love Kotobukiya figures.  I especially love the ones that treat comic characters to the Japanese stylization, and to have that done with my favorite villainess is wonderful.  They did Harley proud with this figure, posing her in her classic black and red outfit and straddling her giant hammer.
