vs Santa vs Krampus

The Real Battle for Xmas

Tis the season boys and girls! The season, when the two great lords of yule battle for the souls of children worldwide! Us Americans are more than familiar with the overly commercialized version of Father Chistmas, Santa. You know him as the jolliest of the elfs, always knowing what you do, sneaking in your house at night, kissing your mom etc… But Perhaps not all of you are as aware of Krampus, the Germanic counter to Ol’ St Nick. who brings nothing but lashings pain and death to the misbehaving children of the world.

fight card - Santa Vs KrampusMarkedly different than our rotund, red cheeked, reveler. The Krampus is mostly demon, cloven hoofed, horned and goat faced, with a lolling tounge. He’s covered in mangey hair and carries with him some form punishment delivery, be it chains, birch branches, a whip and occasionally even a tub for drowning children on the spot. Though more regularly he seems to stuff them in a sack to bring back to his lair for a more leisurely reckoning KinderFresser style.

Now both these characters have existed in one form or another for hundreds of years, some might even say they both evolved from the same telling of Odin as master of the Yule. But let’s pretend there’s no room at the top of the tree for both and let the battles lead us to the true master of the season!

judgement Is Complete

our judge In all honesty this has been one of those wacky weeks for me, so I never officially locked in a judge, so me thinks the easiest way to do this is to let the fan favorite voting pick our winners. So get your ass over to the FB page and vote for your favorites, and hell while you’re there, throw some comments in so I have something to post in the judges commentary part, we’ll call it tomorrow afternoon!

And the award for crazy assed, plum eating, set my son on fire Santa goes to this one! Plus it gets points for the most properly lolling tongue and it’s a highlander reference, which reminds me of mario van peebles, which makes me laugh.

Judge’s Commentary

Mr Shirilla, just pounding the competition the last few weeks, possibly just because he just has more friends than you, but I like to think it’s his faux necronomicon paper!

Christmas Punch Kaplow! Who’d of thunk our jolly old elf was such a skilled pugilist? While I’m starting to feel a little bit bad for old Krampus, I’m kind of assuming he deserves it, I mean rumor has it, Santa knows best…

Judge’s Commentary

And down goes Krampus!!! Love the action and as always I’m a sucker for the watercolor style.

So literally took me like three full looks before i realized that was a laser gun sight… first I thought it was a third eye, then maybe a blemish… but now i totally get why he’s so interested in its presence… regardless 100 points for the rope belt!

Judge’s Commentary

This guy was my personal favorite so instead of breaking the tie in my wifes favor I’m going to see if the site lets us have two third place winners!

Geiger meets Garfield! well only sorta but, it’s funny, if they both woulda been willing to talk it out, odds are they both like lasagna, and isnt that where all friendships start? some kind of common ground?…

Judge’s Commentary

Unless Santa is disemboweling said Krampus from a very awkward position, this is the one and only winning Krampus in the batch, for that submittor Mona deserves a nod!

You know except in rare cases of tolerance and even rarer cases of raiders of lost arks, a pretty good rule to follow is to not challenge a fat man in the game of drink.

Aww man I bet even supervillainous holiday beasts of myth hate to lose a popularity contest. You’d think there’d be at least one kid in the batch who was bored enough in the other line to stop over. I mean look how adorable he is!

I sorta like to think that Krampus is sabotaging ol’ Santa by adding children from his drowning tub to under the tree that Santa will have no lists for, creating a kind of brilliant circle of failures… that chimney looks like a space ship btw!

Santa delivering a sackful of coally justice! My absolute favorite part is if you look close it sorta looks like Santa is wearing some sort of microfiber/under armour kinda snug fitting Santa suit? and the fury button! So good!

Oh man even if it were for his kid and a truck, Krampus doesn’t stand a chance… look at the guns on that Santa and didn’t vikings already establish that only hard asses wear fur vests and cuffs? I am a huge fan of that Krampus’ build though…

Not a whole lot to say about this one other than the fact that I’m already looking forward to the book “sean’s been a very bad boy” I mean of all the Seans we’ve seen why this one is so beautifully rendered? holiday magic maybe?
