Grimm Tales of Terror 2016 Holiday Special comes with four alternative covers – three of which leave you in no doubt what good little boys want in their Christmas stocking!

To quote the inside cover blurb: “What would the holidays be without joy, happiness, celebrations … and some tales of terror?” This traditional antidote to the saccharine overload of family festivities in favour of more Scrooge orientated twisted and perverse delving into the human psyche is as old as Christmas itself and is looked forward to with no less fervour than mistletoe and mince pies. Joe Brusha and Ralph Tedesco serve up a deliciously perverse smorgasbord in Grimm Tales of Terror 2016 Holiday Special, all presided over by a red-headed cutie whose advent calendar holds a real surprise behind every door.

Mall Santa is the opening gambit of Grimm Tales of Terror 2016 Holiday Special and the delicious artwork of Alessandro Miracolo gives you a clue as to why this Bad Santa wears a red suit! A festive variation on the theme of every action has an equal and opposite reaction, writer Ryan Lynch show us why you don’t want to be on the naughty list.

Office politics and the perils of being a Secret Santa come courtesy of Dany Roth and Moy R. and when Kevin fakes being sick so he can look for his Christmas presents he gets much more than he bargained for in “Sick Day” from Michael Dolce and Babisu Kourtis, but cat lovers everywhere will want to skip “Mr. Mendesohn” by Sina Grace and Marika Cresta (don’t say I didn’t warn you kitty people!)

If this is the season to be jolly Grimm Tales of Terror 2016 Holiday Special may just be the stuffing your turkey needs to give it that extra holiday zing.
