How the Gruumsh Stole Needfest

Welcome back Greyhawk fans, you've been on Santa's nice list so here is another classic Christmas (Needfest) comic of mine from over 10 years ago. I have rarely had such a good run of parody ideas than I did for the World of Greyhawk Comic strip. My theme for the Neefest specials was always to do "evil" versions of classic Christmas stories. I'm particularly proud of this one:

"December 21st 2006: Here it is! The second annual Needfest Special! Last year's 'A Needfest Story' is regarded as among my best work to date. It is certainly my favorite piece and as such it should be tough to top. Well this one goes the distance to try that. You will find some absurdities and stretches of Grey-logic but that's what the comic has always been about. No, it is not a parody of a Christmas Carol either, that would be too easy! Anyhoo, feel free to share this one with all your friends and have a Happy Needfest. Also, kudos go out to Cebrion, the mad verse editor whose love for the subject covered by this Needfest Special, has made it work out so perfectly. Enjoy! -Mortellan"
