Not Even Remotely Timely

I was originally going to put this up around Christmas, but I received plenty of more suitable pics.

Leave it to Rob Liefeld's comic company to manage to make Santa a musclebound, knife-wielding, pouch-bedecked psychopath. But wait...

Is that Hitler in the pile?

One thing I could have told you wouldn't be in the pile: feet.
Eh, close enough.

This tastelessness appeared in Santa the Barbarian #1, and was actually drawn by Dan Fraga (who is, I suppose a step up, artwise from his crosshatch-prone employer). I actually hadn't heard of this comic until recently, since I pretty much stopped reading comics for a decade when they all started looking like this.

And no, Virginia. To the best of my knowledge, there has been no Santa the Barbarian #2.
