In a recent article on AintItCoolNews.com Harry Knowles wrote "What I love about Jingle Belle is here's a character that is instantly a new layer to the Christmas legend. Santa Claus goes all over the world giving presents to good boys and girls, but in his own house he has a naughty teenage daughter. She's an immortal teenage girl who can't help being Christmas-y no matter what."
Paul Dini is a five time Emmy winner and is best known for his work on various Warner Brothers animation projects, such as "Batman: The Animated Series" and "Batman Beyond: Return Of The Joker." Dini's other forays into comic books include his best-selling large format DC Comics titles with artist Alex Ross including this year's "Wonder Woman: The Spirit Of Truth."
