Set in a dark fantastic past of myth and magic, Klaus tells the story of how Santa Claus really came to be. Where did he begin? What was he like when he was young? And what happens when he faces his greatest challenge? Drawing on Santa Claus’ wilder roots in Viking lore and Siberian shamanism—taking in the creepier side of Christmas, and characters like the sinister Krampus—Klaus is “Santa Claus: Year One.”
Ho! Ho! Ho!
Yes, a Christmas read was needed for today. I don’t really like Christmas but the world finds a way to get you in on the season.
Klaus is the story of how Santa came to be. This was before he wore the red suit and rode the sleigh pulled by reindeers.
When I found out about this comic I immediately wanted to read it. This year my obsession has been over Krampus- basically the anti-Santa. This story was different in the sense that Santa wasn’t who we know him as…not yet.
A young man comes to a town and it’s dark. Not as in the time of day, but the town was devoid of love and happiness. And all around the world we’re taught that Christmas time is when we should spread the love and happiness even more than we usually do. Of course, the man is outraged and after speaking his mind is kicked out of the town and left to be hunted in the woods.
I loved the wolf that was in the story. She and Klaus clearly have a very special bond.
This was only the first issue so it was quite short. I can’t wait to see where the rest will take us. The writing style was great and easy to get into and the artwork was amazing and very detailed.
