This Comic's Cast:

This is a nice combination of the Four Swords comic from earlier, plus last year's Christmas special. And it seems perfect, with Alec being the only one to really believe in Santa he'd also be the only one qualified to take over the gig.
The familiars as the reindeer was quick ad lib when I was searching for a punchline. And, really they sell the comic.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
