Thrillbent Answer Question “What Does Santa Do for the Rest of the Year?” – He’s a Private Detective

Duh.

Thrillbent have announced a new series starting up called Santa Claus: Private Eye, by Jeremy Bernstein and Michael Dorman. A noir tale with colouring from Rob Schwager and lettering from Troy Peteri, the series will be looking at the other 364 days of Santa’s year. What does he do when he’s not delivering toys to girls and boys? He’s off patrolling the streets, working as a detective for hire.

The series starts off with a new case for Santa, in which he has only two days to solve a mystery before Christmas starts and he has to get on his sleigh. Will he crack the case in time? And so on. It’s a fairly nihilistic take on everybody’s favourite chimney user, but the holiday hook may well be the thing which pushes this a few steps above the typical comics noir.

You can read the first chapter for free over on Thrillbent right now.
