"Before reading the script the graphic novel" Daddy Santa "like I imagined this story, I imagined a pickpocket trying to find all sorts of ingenious ways, all kinds of tricks to steal from people. But, reading stories and knowing him better, I think he is a thief principles. Although at first he is an antihero. Commonly, thieves are caught comic heroes. But our character goes through a journey, trying to get somewhere. He helps his family even if by theft, and often caught and punished, trying to find peace of mind, goes through a series of adventures, through two major wars at a time, even save some lives. I think of an anti-hero, Santa Tata becomes the hero of this story!”, He believes Mihai. I. Grajdeanu.
