Are you ready to discover the true story of Santa Klaus? Stephen and Matthew go down the rabbit hole of Grant Morrison and Dan Mora’s Klaus #1 from BOOM! Studios.

Klaus1coverKlaus #1 (of 6)
Writer: Grant Morrison
Artist: Dan Mora
What’s to Love: Grant Morrison is one of the most prolific and best-selling writers in comics, earning a reputation for his ability to effectively revamp superheroes like Animal Man, Batman, and the X-Men. His creator-owned titles are also highly praised, including The Invisibles, Nameless, We3, and Joe the Barbarian because no one tells mythical stories better than him. In Klaus, Grant reimagines one of the biggest cultural myths in history, and we could not be more excited to pair him with one of our homegrown talents, Dan Mora (Hexed)!

What It Is: Set in a dark fantastic past of myth and magic, Klaus tells the story of how Santa Claus really came to be. Where did he begin? What was he like when he was young? And what happens when he faces his greatest challenge? Drawing on Santa Claus’ wilder roots in Viking lore and Siberian shamanism—taking in the creepier side of Christmas, and characters like the sinister Krampus—Klaus is “Santa Claus: Year One.”

  1. Spoilers for spider-verse: In Spider-Verse earth-001 is Loomworld where the inheritors were using the master weaver to go to different earths to absorb spider totems. When they defeat the inheritors Spider-UK some others learn that their worlds are destroyed so they decide to stay in Loomworld to go and help the earths that lost their spider totems. And as for the jesus thing there is some literature that talks about a theory that the story of jesus originated with tribes that used the amanita muscaria.

  2. Ok… after listening and constantly hearing my name I had to look up Matthew’s profile. Oddly Matthew and I share a name and before I moved we shared a comic book store! Even more oddly, Matthew and I never met, but I was known as the other Matthew Peterson at Gatekeeper. Such a fantastic store, miss having a store of that caliber to go to.
