"Santa's Final Days"

One reason why this strip will always have a special place in my heart is that it was my first chance to fulfill a childhood dream of publishing a full-color, Sunday-funnies-style comic strip in a real newspaper (namely, the Christmas 1983 issue of the Village Voice).

Unfortunately, in The Other Sides of Howard Cruse we've had to go with b&w.

The strip parodies a media spectacle that's familiar to us all, wherein a previously esteemed public figure is brought low by scandal while the public watches with a mob's brew of outrage and glee.
