At Last, A Santa Claus I Could Really Get Behind

blockadesantahead As part of my continuing effort to make this blog your one-stop homoerotic Santa Claus headquarters, I'd like to present some panels from "Gumby's Winter Fun Special" #1 (Comico, December 1988).

Turns out ol' Kris Kringle is more of a sailor-type. Check out the sweet anchor tattoo! Also his real name is "Ray Crabbe" but I'm choosing to ignore that part.

Better yet, Santa is a total bad-ass. He's not the morose whiner from "The Year Without A Santa Claus" or the irritating bumbler from all those godawful "Santa Clause" movies. Nope! He's an action hero, pure and simple.

Aw, yeah! So, Santa, you've escaped from hell itself and saved Christmas once again. What should we do now?

Aye aye, Santa. Aye, aye.

Oh this bites. All of a sudden this morning, photos on flickr are being blocked for me at work. Flickr's site isn't blocked, but all the pics hosted there are. I'd totally quit if it weren't for the delicious smiley faced cookies on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
