BOOM! Studios surprised everyone yesterday afternoon by announced Grant Morrison is writing a book for the publisher. Even more interesting is the subject matter Morrison is taking on – Santa Claus!
Klaus is an all-ages fantasy epic starring one of the most well-known figures in the world, re-created for an audience raised on superheroes like Batman, Thor, and Iron Man. This is the story of how Santa Claus really began, drawing on his wilder roots in Viking lore and Siberian shamanism: What was he like when he was young? Why does he do what he does? And what happens when he faces his greatest challenge?
Klaus will feature art by Dan Mora and will arrive in November, just in time to get us all into the holiday spirit!
What do you think of this announcement? Are you ready to jump on the Morrison train to the North Pole?
