Klaus will return this holiday season with Klaus and the Crisis in Xmasville, from BOOM! Studios.
Eisner Award-winning writer Grant Morrison (All-Star Superman, The Multiversity) and Eisner Award-nominated artist Dan Mora (Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers, WWE: Then. Now. Forever.) will bring the third story in the critically acclaimed reimagining of the Santa Claus origin story. Klaus and the Crisis in Xmasville is set for December, dating back to the franchise launch in 2015.
In Klaus and the Crisis in Xmasville, an evil Santa from an alternate dimension has founded a soda corporation that uses Christmas and holiday cheer as a marketing tactic to build their fortunes. Only Klaus can defeat the Pola-Cola Corp. and the zombie-like Santas that are in the evil Santa’s thrall.
“Last year’s Klaus special drew on a lot of traditional Christmas lore from around the world. This year, the influences are more contemporary, and CRISIS IN XMASVILLE takes some of its inspiration from the history of soda marketing and Santa,” says Morrison.
“It is a pleasure to once again be working with Grant Morrison on a new Klaus story,” says Mora. “I’ve been waiting for this all year!”
Klaus and the Crisis in Xmasville features a main cover illustrated by Mora and a variant cover by John Cassaday. Print copies will hit local comic book shops and popular digital apps carrying Boom! titles, this December.
