    As for the artwork, the illustrations are pretty effective, as Rick Remender puts away his typewriter and picks up his pencil for this limited series. His drawings of snowmen and walking dead are equally solid, and the inking by Hilary Barta is smoothly incorporated into some of the frightening close-ups of Santa. The art is not spectacular, but it does give the issue a feeling of quality which is exacerbated by the wonderful coloring of Michelle Madsen, whose work I have always enjoyed. Yes, believe it or not, there are elements of Last Christmas I did like! Why else would I give it a moderate grade? I also liked Gary the Snowman and his grammatically-incorrect narration, which should have highlighted the fairy tale nature of the story. Instead, his appearances were a stark reminder of what could have been with the first two issues of Last Christmas, illustrating the need for atmosphere instead of simple bathroom humor and undead guts.
