If you have been itching for more tales of Klaus from Grant Morrison and Dan Mora, Christmas is coming a little early this year as BOOM! Studios has announced Klaus and the Life and Times of Joe Christmas #1.

“Just when you think there’s nothing special left to say about Santa Claus, Grant and Dan rise to the challenge. With over fifty pages of Dan Mora’s art and Grant’s masterfully minimalist storytelling, this year’s special may be our most powerful yet,” said Eric Harburn, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Grant and Dan have truly outdone themselves with this wordless issue of KLAUS that will delight longtime fans and astonish new readers.”

Nothing’s calm but all is bright in this once-in-a-lifetime special KLAUS event—a completely silent issue! Meet Joe Christmas, a regular human man who’s known Klaus all his life, and fought beside him for most of it. Each of the 25 two-page vertical spreads will feature a new Christmas adventure with stunning illustrations by Dan Mora depicting a day in the incredible life of Joe Christmas, a very special young boy who grows up to become one of Klaus’ staunchest allies and closest friends.

KLAUS AND THE LIFE & TIMES OF JOE CHRISTMAS #1 continues the annual holiday tradition of new Klaus comic book releases, dating back to the franchise launch. Now, get a glimpse of a never-before-seen period of Klaus’ past, complete with gigantic battles against monsters, beautiful moments of holiday spirit, and special guest appearances from old allies and new foes.

“As ever, working with Dan Mora on a new KLAUS story is a highlight of my year. For this year’s special we decided to do something a little different by creating a Christmas advent calendar story featuring 25 iconic scenes from the adventures of Klaus,” said writer Grant Morrison. “We wanted to give Dan free rein for his remarkable creativity and imagination while also providing a narrative element that allows the images to tell the exciting, poignant and completely wordless life story of one JOE CHRISTMAS, from his humble beginnings to his inevitable end, as we see how that life has been affected and changed by his encounters and adventures with Klaus.”

Klaus has been a very interesting series, and though some find the tale Morrison and Mora are whipping up, I rather dig what they are offering the comic community. The best part is, Christmas comes early as Klaus and the Life and Times of Joe Christmas #1 arrives on December 18, 2019.
