Ben Templesmith has a Wormwood: Gentleman Corpse Holiday Special one-shot coming up at IDW you won’t want to miss his conception of Santa’s workshop. Santa is a CEO whose efforts are failing, automation is setting in, and the polar north is melting.
Here’s the full description:
All is not well in the far north. As the Arctic slowly melts, automation increases, and labor costs go through the roof, CEO Claus is under increasing pressure to answer to his stockholders and his lenders. Rebellion is in the air and only Wormwood can potentially come in to help—and hopefully not bugger it up too much.
The taglines for the comic will certainly tickle your fancy:

I saw Wormwood killing Santa Claus! Underneath the mistletoe last night!
More Wormwood already? It’s a corpse-mas miracle!
The comic features two different covers that are rather priceless in their blend of holiday and horror styles:
