If you’ve ever wondered what the Jolly Old Elf does after he drops off gifts to the good little gentile boys and girls (and by the way Santa, I don’t appreciate your bigoted views against us Jews) then you’ll probably enjoy Santa Claus: Private Eye, a digital comic which delves deep into the noir-ish life that Santa, the Private Dick, keeps up the other 364 days a year.
From dealing with femme fatales, gangsters and guns to snapping pics of people screwing just so he can make a living, Santa Claus is coming to town…or whatever catch phrase seems more menacing.
Created by Jeremy Bernstein (writer on Leverage and the video games Dead Space 2 and Pretty in Pink (wtf?)) and drawn by artist Michael Dorman (Logan’s Run: Aftermath and Tales from the Dark Universe), this weekly serial is available from Thrillbent for a $3.99 monthly subscription (which also gets you access to the entire Thrillbent library).
If you want to take a gander at this interesting view of Mr. Kringle being not so chipper, than read this first chapter for free HERE.
I’m guessing this might crush the childhoods of those of you who Santa did see fit to deliver gifts to, for me, it’s nice to see that he has a tough time making ends meet…yeah, I’m bitter, so what?
