Guest: Daniel Kibblesmith
Challengers is so very excited to host DANIEL KIBBLESMITH (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, "How to Win at Everything", "Doorman", "Quantum and Woody", etc.) for the release of SANTA'S HUSBAND!!
Everyone knows that Santa Claus is jolly, but in Santa’s Husband, this cherished symbol of the holiday season is also black and gay, and married to an equally cheery man.
Offering a fresh twist on Kris Kringle, a clever yet heartfelt book that tells the story of a black Santa, his white husband, and their life in the North Pole.
In this witty and sweet illustrated Christmas tale, humor writer Daniel Kibblesmith introduces us to Mr. and Mr. Claus, and gives us a glimpse of their lives together. We see the Clauses sitting by the fire at their cozy North Pole home, vacationing at the beach, having an occasional disagreement, celebrating their wedding day, and comforting each other when some loudmouth people on television angrily dispute Santa’s appearance and lifestyle.
In the weeks before Christmas, Santa’s husband helps with all the pre-Christmas work, from double-checking lists, to feeding the reindeer (organic gluten-free grains, of course), to negotiating labor disputes with the restive workshop elves. At the height of toy-making season, he even fills in for his busy hubby at the mall to ensure every child can meet the Big Guy in the red suit, and give him their wish list.
Featuring beautiful watercolor art by AP Quach, this charming book reminds us Santa Claus can come in all shapes and colors and sizes— just like the children and families he visits all over the world each Christmas Eve.
Daniel will be appearing at Challengers on Saturday, November 25th, from 1pm to 3pm.
Daniel Kibblesmith is an Emmy-nominated writer and comedian from Oak Park, Illinois. He is a staff writer for The Late Show With Stephen Colbert (2015) and a founding editor of ClickHole (2014).

Hey Third Eye Faithful, we’re proud to say we were a part of the very first Small Business Saturday ever a few years back, and we’re totally pumped to be celebrating the day again this November!
After nearly 10 years of existence, Third Eye is STILL independently owned and operated, and we’re extremely proud of the fact. No matter how much we grow as a company, we still consider ourselves to be a locally operated, independently owned business that values the comic & fan community of Maryland & DC more than anything else.
As such, a day like SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY is extra-special for us, because it’s a celebration of ALL the independently owned small businesses that help make each and every town and city unique. Whether it’s your favorite local diner, or your friendly neighborhood Third Eye Comics — it’s vital to have unique, and interesting places for people to have experiences and build relationships.
So, we’d be so honored if you guys would join us for Small Business Saturday to celebrate just how awesome small businesses are!
In celebration of Small Biz Saturday, we’re offering the following awesome promotions:
Get DOUBLE Third Eye Card points with EVERY purchase! That’s right, you spend $20 – you get 10 points instead of 5, you spend $40, you get 20 points instead of 10, etc. Fill that card up even faster!
Get the totally awesome all-new RE-USABLE Third Eye Tote Bag AND a FREE Third Eye T-Shirt with any purchase of $30.00 or more!

Porcelain: Ivory Tower, number three in the much loved series (out right now from Improper Books!), continues to explore the themes of consciousness, self-determination and the corruption of power in a beautifully illustrated and tightly plotted journey through a fully realised and troubled world. Mixing gothic horror, sci-fi, a fairy tale sensibility and an epic sense of scale we’re certain the Porcelain series is a future classic of young adult fiction so we’re thrilled to have the creators with us!
