Grant Morrison and Dan Mora’s Klaus returns in ‘The Crisis in Xmasville’

BOOM! Studios is excited to announce KLAUS AND THE CRISIS IN XMASVILLE by Eisner Award-winning writer Grant Morrison (All-Star Superman, The Multiversity) and Eisner Award-nominated artist Dan Mora (Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers, WWE: Then. Now. Forever.), the third story in the critically acclaimed reimagining of the Santa Claus origin story. KLAUS AND THE CRISIS IN XMASVILLE continues the holiday tradition of a new Klaus release from BOOM! Studios in December, dating back to the franchise launch in 2015.

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.

“Last year’s Klaus special drew on a lot of traditional Christmas lore from around the world. This year, the influences are more contemporary, and CRISIS IN XMASVILLE takes some of its inspiration from the history of soda marketing and Santa,” says Morrison.

“It is a pleasure to once again be working with Grant Morrison on a new Klaus story,” says Mora. “I’ve been waiting for this all year!”

“Grant and Dan have established a new holiday tradition by delivering a brand-new Klaus story two years running now,” says Matt Gagnon, Editor-in-Chief, BOOM! Studios. “And with a new villain being introduced in KLAUS AND THE CRISIS IN XMASVILLE, the rogues gallery gets bigger, the mythology of the world expands, and our love for this series continues to reach new heights!”
