A Horror Filled Holiday: Wormwood Gentleman Corpse Christmas Special Arrives This Week

by Oliver MacNamee

Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without some holiday horror, right? Well, if such stories were good enough for the Victorians, who virtually invented the very secular Christmas we have today, then they’re good enough for us comic book readers too. And so, we present a preview of Ben Templesmith’s Wormwood Gentleman Corpse Christmas Special out this Wednesday, the 20th of December from IDW.

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.
