Explosive comic book publisher BOOM! Studios has released a first look at Klaus and the Crying Snowman #1, kicking of a brand new story in the reimagined Santa Claus mythology from comics wizard Grant Morrison and artist Dan Mora. BOOM! revealed the preview via Morrison mentally projecting the terrifying images directly into the minds of members of the comic book press, and also via a press release:
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.
Said BOOM! Senior Editor Eric Harburn:
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,. And as with every new adventure, Klaus reminds us what lies at the heart of the holiday season: helping those who need it most.
Klaus and the Crying Snowman #1 hits stores on December 12th. Check out the preview below:
