I agree with IDW that Christmas has become too commercialized. They should be pleased to know that I did my part in fighting the commercialization of the holiday by not paying to read this comic.
The comic doesn’t seem to know what it’s trying to say. It’s like "Commercialization is bad except when people like it. Then you’re a jerk for pointing out how they’re being swindled. Buy our comic for all your friends and family!"
The art was good overall. I appreciated the care taken with giving everybody a new winter outfit but Hickey goes too far with expressions sometimes when the situation doesn’t call for it.
