Synopsis: Collecting The Comical Tragedy Of Punch And Judy, and Punch And Judy: A Grand Guignol. If you can imagine Tim Burton collaborating with Rankin & Bass on a Jingle Belle vs. Itchy & Scratchy Christmas Special or Grant Morrison penning a kids book with such things in it as palindrome bears, pickled children, and a protagonist who merely wants two bags of harps and the Double Jesus for Christmas then you can imagine what absurd delights await you."-- J.

Synopsis: Some of SLGs top creators and a few guests join forces to tell the stories of Kyle & Kelly Hatcher; a lonely brother and sister who get a Strange Egg delivered to them every week, by the dapper egg deliveryman, Roger Rogers.
The eggs hatch into problems that the kids need to solve. Problems like aliens, dinosaurs, crazed ventriloquist dummies and several hobos.
