Bullseye


Comedian Brian Posehn and television writer Gerry Duggan were looking for a project to write together. Duggan was fixated on the idea of Santa Claus with a gun in his hand when Posehn posed a provocative question: "What does Santa do after the apocalypse?" The comic that grew from that question is The Last Christmas.

PLUS: a bonus holiday sketch from our pals at Elephant Larry.
