When someone murders one of your flying reindeer, you’re supposed to do something about it.

So begins this whimsical Santa noir, LAST POLE ON THE LEFT. There’s a murder at the North Pole in Christmas Town and Santa investigates down the dirty snow-covered streets, encountering drunken penguins, closed-mouth reindeer, and a crime boss Walrus. It’s all in good fun to bolster your holiday spirit, but keep it away from the kiddies. This isn’t the Santa they’re looking for. But it just might be the Santa we need.
