14 posts | 8 read | 6 to read
Comics legend Grant Morrison introduces us to an old friend, Santa Claus, as we've never seen him before. He s a myth. He s a legend. He s loved worldwide by children and adults alike . . . but does anyone truly know the origins of Santa Claus? Set in a dark fantastic past of myth and magic, Klaus tells the origin story of Santa Claus. It s the tale of one man and his wolf against a totalitarian state and the ancient evil that sustains it. Award-winning author Grant Morrison (All-Star Superman, The Multiversity) and artist Dan Mora (Hexed) revamp, reinvent, and re-imagine a classic superhero for the 21st century, drawing on Santa s roots in Viking lore and Siberian shamanism, and taking in the creepier side of Christmas with characters like the sinister Krampus. Klaus finally answers the burning question: what does Santa Claus do on the other 364 days a year?"

Finished 4 books this week, so my #bookreport is not too shabby. I don‘t have any in process books to report on at the moment (quite the achievement, and probably won‘t ever happen again, lol).

Now I need to figure out what‘ll be on my list to finish out the year! 😁

Dark retelling of the myth of Santa Claus with lots of Viking lore mixed in. I enjoyed it more than I anticipated. The artwork is very detailed and extremely well done.

This book collected all seven stories in one. #TeamFestivus #HolidayReads @wanderinglynn #wintergames @StayCurious @Clwojick (20×7)+1=141pts

Loved this retelling of the Santa Claus myth. His white wolf, Lilli, was my favorite. 🐺💕. Great art in this.

The graphic novel itself is really nice with gold edges and metallic etching.

Round 2 of defending my snack, nacho tots, from Kitcat. Drink: Blood Orange 🍊 soda.

Finished all my school 🏫 work for the week, so now I can just enjoy the #readathon 📚! Excited to start Klaus as I‘ve seen a lot of good posts about it.

jb72 LOL I know what you mean. I usually have 2 dogs and my Mallie cat staring at me for snacks. 3mo
CoffeeCatsBooks @jb72 😂 If I am eating cheese, Kitcat will reach out and tap me with her paw, like “hello don‘t forget about your furry companion.” 3mo

I‘m starting this one tonight (it‘s so pretty with the gold edges) and listening to Christmas music. Sometimes when you have a crappy day you gotta find something that makes you happy and to me that is Christmas music. 🎄🎅🏼

Terrible picture, but an awesome book to finish out the year with. I love new takes on familiar stories and this version of Santa was great.

Klaus is the Christmas comic series you never knew you needed (and yes it can be purchased in TPB format now). Klaus gives a badass origin story for Santa Claus, and makes for a ton of fun reading. The art is gorgeous. It is not to be missed. As the holidays approach, definitelt consider putting this one on your Christmas reading list.

Beautiful re-invented classic story about Santa Clause involved Viking style and shamanism. I am very sorry that it didn't come to my attention earlier before Christmas. It will be a perfect gift for a bookish friend who appreciates comics. The main character is beautifully drawn and has brutally sex charisma😍l hope the story will have continuation because the ending was not well developed.
