Klaus by Grant Morrison & Dan Mora

It's Yuletide, but there is no holiday for the working people, and no toys for the children. What they want is a superhero. What they get is... Klaus.

Here at last is the origin story of (buff barbarian superhero) Santa Claus!

A fabulous action adventure story utilizing traditional Santa story elements combined with Viking-esque myth elements and lots of magic. Klaus flies through the air on a sled pulled by a magical Arctic wolf, and fights the evil forces of a Krampus-esque demon; in his leisure time, he creates and distributes fabulous magical toys to the children of the beleagered City of Grimsvig, entering homes secretly via the unguarded chimneys.

DC Comic author/artist Grant Morrison has created a fast-moving epic story that appeals to children and adults, ages 12 and up. No nekkidness (it's COLD in all that snow!); some blood and violence.

The events may not have happened; still, the story is true.  --R. Silvern
