Alan Ford - The Christmas Tree

If you are tired of the usual happy and romantic stories related to the holiday season, this and the next comic could be for you your.

And by “doing everything” we mean everything, even the most unspeakable things.

Dylan Dog n.196 - Who killed Santa Claus?

Not satisfied with Alan Ford - The Christmas tree and are you looking for something even more shocking? So here is the representative par excellence of Italian comic art: the Investigator of the Nightmare of Sergio Bonelli Editore. Already from the cover you can realize that it is certainly not a work to give to children. In this comic, in fact, the screenwriter Pasquale Ruju and the designer Giampiero Casertano have decided to tan poor Santa Claus for the holidays by dyeing the white snow with blood red. The register tells the story of Ronald Thornsen who one day, in the hospital-prison where he is staying, receives a strange Christmas letter. As you can understand, it is not a letter of gifts.
