Leap of Wha?! / Merry Christmas! / Gift Comic Strip by Kevin Magpoc

Hey everyone!
So, it's Christmas Day, 2012!  This being the season of giving, later on I'll have some gifts for you!  Woohoo!
Firstly, I apologize for the irregular update schedule but I've been so busy lately that this current storyline should have been done last September but it's still ongoing!  One of the things that has been keeping me from regularly updating this webcomic is the newspaper run of Callous in the Manila Bulletin.  I've been sending new gag strips which haven't appeared on the website yet.  Which also means that I now have quite a large buffer come the time I finish this storyline and go back to publishing gag-a-day comic strips here!

But today is Christmas, so I'll be posting a couple of holiday-related comic strips that haven't appeared on this website yet!  Enjoy!

For the third year (though not in a row) I participated in the Webcomic Secret Santa Exchange.  What follows is the great gift comic strip from my 2012 "Secret Santa", Kevin Magpoc of IDGet comics!  Be sure to check out the rest of the gifts at!

Thank you so much, Kevin!

Well, have a wonderful and merry Christmas, everyone!  And I wish you all a fantastic New Year!
