After wars, mutations, exterminations and living dead Christmas is in peril: the living children that belive in Santa Claus are less and less.
Even Santa’s village is attacked by mutants and marauders: after Santa’s wife death he understands that he can not die – despite the various suicide attempts – until there is at last one children believing in him. Leaving with an elf and booze Santa is willing to kill the last boy and then die in peace, he will change his mind and fight against mutants.
Book that who loves the shining, full of goodness Christmas must avoid: here there is not scraping on blood, rough stuff and spectacular deaths, the protagonist himself is not a model to anyone.
The graphic novel, maybe somewhat excessive, can make the reader smile in the most splatter scenes, but the plot it’s too much predictable.
Thanks to the publisher for providing me the copy necessary to write this review.
