X-Mas Special: "Present Tense" by Ty Templeton

One of my all time favorite Christmas comic tales comes from the second DC Universe Holiday Bash from way back in 1997. It is a very simple two page affair, but it is honestly just an amusing juxtaposition of Santa in the DC Universe.

Thankfully, it has been heavily re-posted online, even by artist/writer Ty Templeton himself. So as Santa readies for his long ride in a few weeks, let's all find the answer to the question: what is Christmas like on Apokolips?

Don't you miss the days when Darkseid could be used for comedic purposes and no one was bothered by it? I know I do.


  1. I think I'd enjoy a comic pitting Darkseid against Belsnickel.

    1. I feel like it was a great loss by DC not to continue producing two page Darkseid holiday stories over the years. There's a dozen gags beyond this one that could easily be made.
