Santa's got a brand new bag and he's helping a sinister witch bolster her wicked forces with an army of wooden soldiers on the moon because, you know... comics! Boom!'s Klaus mini-series was one of the surprisingly refreshing series of the year, taking the legend of St. Nick and melding it with Game of Thrones-like theatrics, painterly landscapes and terrifying mythological creatures. Written by the always captivating Grant Morrison and complemented by atmospheric art by Dan Mora, the seven-issue series ended in August of 2016, with fans worldwide clamoring for more of this savage Conan-ish crusader. Now Boom! has granted us a holiday wish in the new one-shot, Klaus and the Witch of Winter, with the original creative team aboard this superhero Santa's sleigh, and our burly Father Christmas engaged in a lunar adventure perfect for this Christmassy time of year.
Here's the official synopsis:
Klaus returns for an epic oversized one-shot, perfect for any comic fan’s stocking! Brought to you by legendary creator Grant Morrison and 2016 Russ Manning Award winner Dan Mora, join the continuing adventures through space and time of the man that would become Santa Claus. Trapped on the moon for decades, Klaus is magically freed by the Witch of Winter to do her bidding: create an endless supply of wooden soldiers to conquer the world!
