Grant Morrison and Dan Mora are returning to their reimagining of Santa Claus with Klaus and the Crisis in Xmasville that lands in December.
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,” said Morrison in a press release from BOOM! Studios.
“Grant and Dan have established a new holiday tradition by delivering a brand-new Klaus story two years running now,” said Matt Gagnon, Editor-in-Chief, BOOM! Studios. “And with a new villain being introduced in KLAUS AND THE CRISIS IN XMASVILLE, the rogues gallery gets bigger, the mythology of the world expands, and our love for this series continues to reach new heights!”
There isn’t an exact date for this release, but we know it will arrive on one of the four Wednesdays in December.
