Saving Santa is a humorous and lightly satirical holiday fantasy for all ages, reimagining Santa Claus as the conflicted C.E.O. of a modern business enterprise. Written by Arun Narayanan and illustrated by Jessica Warrick, Saving Santa is published by Scout Comics. Lucy Goodshoe, an idealistic young elf from the North Pole inner city, just landed her dream job: assistant to Santa Claus, the CEO, founder, and face of the multibillion-dollar, global toy manufacturing and distribution empire known as North Pole Industries. But Lucy quickly discovers things are not so jolly on the top floor. While Santa has been distracted by fortune and fame, his bitter co-founder Rudy Rednose has pushed the company to ruthlessly focus on profit over everything else, firing hundreds of hardworking elves in favor of soulless robots. And this year before Christmas Eve, Rudy plans to replace Santa and his reindeer with a robot Santa and drones! But Lucy loves Christmas too much to let that happen, and now that she has access to the company's inner workings, maybe she can stop him! If she can remind Santa Claus of who he used to be before corporate interests sapped his Christmas spirit, then Lucy and Santa just might be able to take the company back and save Christmas—before it’s too late!
