The Dinicartoons cast of characters includes: Little Rashy and Superrica the sock monkeys; Polly Green the Halloween witch; Ida Red, the spunky Texas cowgirl; Tashi Ounce, the snow leopard girl; and Hyper Hyena the… well, the name says it all.
“Some Dinicartoons books will feature already known characters like Jingle Belle and Sheriff Ida Red,” said Dini. “Others will be completely new creations.”

Paul Dini’s Jingle Belle comes to Top Cow in a special “Halloween collides with Christmas” one-shot written by Dini and drawn by Stephanie Gladden (Powerpuff Girls, Chowder, Hopster’s Tracks). In years past, Santa has triumphed over a variety of enemies including the Devil himself. Now, St. Nick gets ready to face his greatest challenge ever in Jingle Belle: Santa Claus Vs. Frankenstein!

Inspired by Mary Shelley’s original novel (sort of), the story of Frankenstein’s monster takes a new twist when he is found by Jingle in the Arctic wastes and “rehabilitated” to fit in with the elves at Santa’s Workshop. All goes well until an ultra-PC city declares Santa Claus taboo and awakens Frankie’s monstrous side in a misguided attempt to help his friend. It’s up to an ailing Santa and a reluctant Jingle Belle to stop their monstrous “apprentice” before he destroys the town and ruins the reputation of Christmas forever!
