Tired of remaining an unsung?so to speak?icon of the holiday season in spite of her best efforts, Jingle defies her father's "no publicity" edict and creates an animated TV special with her elfin friends. But before it hits the airwaves, Jing must overcome new adversaries ... contemporary TV executives! Next, determined to prove herself worthy of the Claus legacy, Jingle leaves the North Pole to take over a struggling Santaland amusement park.

And what's an elf-girl to do when the local mob tries to horn in on the action? Raise the stakes, that's what! In addition to vignettes from Jing's past boyfriends, this also includes short stories illustrated by J. Bone and Stephanie Gladden, featuring other characters Paul Dini has created?such as Sheriff Ida Red of Mutant Texas! Collecting the four-issue miniseries.
