LOS ANGELES, CA (November 14, 2018) – BOOM! Studios today unveiled a first look at KLAUS AND THE CRYING SNOWMAN #1, a brand new story set within the world of the Eisner Award-nominated reimagining of the Santa Claus mythology for modern audiences from visionary writer Grant Morrison (The Green Lantern, All Star Superman) and superstar artist Dan Mora (Power Rangers: Shattered Grid), available in stores on December 12, 2018.
KLAUS AND THE CRYING SNOWMAN #1 continues the annual holiday tradition of new Klaus comic book releases, dating back to the franchise launch, and features a main cover and a variant cover both illustrated by Mora, as well as a variant by Humberto Ramos.
Warrior. Legend. Gift-giver. Klaus is many things to many people worldwide, but this year he is the defender of Earth, alongside a host of other wintery warriors, as a threat of galactic proportions invades the planet and endangers all humans, naughty and nice alike.
“Only Grant, Dan, and Ed could bring you this epic addition to the Klaus mythology, with our hero battling giant tree-monsters on Earth and alien invaders on the moons of Saturn, all while making time to unravel the mystery at the heart of the Crying Snowman,” said Eric Harburn, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “And as with every new adventure, Klaus reminds us what lies at the heart of the holiday season: helping those who need it most.”
