Boom! Studios has announced that Grant Morrison and Dan Mora are reuniting this December for Klaus and the Crisis in Xmasville, the third tale in the critically acclaimed reimagining of the Santa Claus origin story.
“Last year’s Klaus special drew on a lot of traditional Christmas lore from around the world,” said Morrison. “This year, the influences are more contemporary, and Crisis in Xmasville takes some of its inspiration from the history of soda marketing and Santa.”
“It is a pleasure to once again be working with Grant Morrison on a new Klaus story,” added Mora. “I’ve been waiting for this all year!”
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.
Klaus and the Crisis in Xmasville is set for release in December 2017.
