I’m a fan of Klaus and I thought it had outlived it’s potential. Holy mistletoe, was I wrong!

Being straight with you, if you even watched Christmas Chronicle skip down and click the buy link.
Grant Morrison writes a previously unknown account of Santa Claus known as the gift giver Klaus, a warrior who looks like Thor and takes up a warrior mantle to take on invaders from beyond the sky. He fights alongside the other personas of Santa Claus from around the world.
Together, the gift givers fight the fight that Asgard lost. By Dan Mora’s hand, Christmas meets Ragnarok. Dan’s art carries what is actually a yarn of redemption.
My criticism of the book is that there are time jumps that have less fluidity while missing enough contrast.
Nits! Who cares? Klaus is as cool as Thor used to be!
This is a buy.
