He’s a myth. He’s a legend. He’s loved worldwide by children and adults alike . . . but does anyone truly know the origins of Santa Claus? Set in a dark fantastic past of myth and magic, Klaus tells the origin story of Santa Claus. It’s the tale of one man and his wolf against a totalitarian state and the ancient evil that sustains it. Award-winning author Grant Morrison (All-Star Superman, The Multiversity) and artist Dan Mora (Hexed) revamp, reinvent, and re-imagine a classic superhero for the 21st century, drawing on Santa’s roots in Viking lore and Siberian shamanism, and taking in the creepier side of Christmas with characters like the sinister Krampus. Klaus finally answers the burning question: what does Santa Claus do on the other 364 days a year?
As one of the most influential comic book writers of the past twenty years, Grant Morrison's contributions to the comics industry are undeniable. Known for his nonlinear narrative and countercultural leanings, Morrison was voted the #2 favorite comic book writer of all time by Comic Book Resources in 2006. His work includes many popular works for DC Comics, including the Multiversity and Arkham Asylum, as well as 2005's iconic All-Star Superman.
A newer face in the American comics industry, Costa Rican artist Dan Mora's previous work can be seen in the Hexed comic series.
