BOOM! Studios has announced that the Grant Morrison and Dan Mora super buff Santa Claus is to return with a new installment. The original series, Klaus, is getting a continuation with Klaus and the Crisis in Xmasville. This year, an evil Santa from an alternate dimension has founded a soda corporation and uses Christmas and holiday cheer as marketing to create a fortune. Klaus must defeat the Pola-Cola corporation, and their zombie-like Santas 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!”
Look for the new installment this holiday season.
