Kaus #1 Cover by Dan Mora

Around this time last year, US publisher Boom! announced they’d be working with Grant Morrison (The Multiversity, Joe the Barbarian, We3, Action Comics and 2000AD’s “Zenith”, to name but a few of his works) on a new title.

Now, as part of their ramp-up to this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, they have announced that project – Klaus, an all-ages fantasy epic starring one of the most well-known figures in the world, re-created for an audience raised on superheroes like Batman, Thor, and Iron Man.

This is the story of how Santa Claus really began, drawing on his wilder roots in Viking lore and Siberian shamanism: What was he like when he was young? Why does he do what he does? And what happens when he faces his greatest challenge?

Klaus will feature interior art and main covers by Dan Mora (Hexed) and is set to debut in November 2015.
