    This second issue continues an action packed, clever and dare I say festive (I doth dare!) action adventure for those who love to believe in a Christmas hero. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Mark Henely Dec 17, 2015

    Klaus #1 was incredibly strong and this second issue does not disappoint. Readers get to see Klaus on his very first night of giving gifts and what the fallout of that night is. This story has no signs of slowing down on a creative level, although it will be weird to read a comic book about Santa Claus in March. Although, if there is any pair that could make a man want to read about Santa Claus in April, it would be Grant Morrison and Dan Mora. Read Full Review

    This is an awesome series, especially for the holidays. Santa is an ever-popular myth that will never go out of style. Morrison does a fine job of contributing his own theories to an insanely entertaining comic book series. Read Full Review

    Add a little holiday music in the background with a little eggnog on the side and Klaus #2 hits all the right notes. It has all the right themes. It effectively mixes classic fairy tales with modern grit to create a fitting holiday treat, courtesy of Morrison. What he's done with Christmas mythology here should put him on Santa's “nice” list for years to come. Read Full Review

    Klaus is a sparkling tale of holiday magic set in a barbaric wonderland, and its just the thing to revive your vigor for Christmastime. Morrison and Mora have created something truly unique in an industry rife with competition and creators, and the result is purely breathtaking. If youre missing out on this series, be sure to put BOOM! Studios on your radar before the six issue run is complete. Read Full Review

    The Hub City Review - Matthew J. Theriault Dec 20, 2015

    Its a shame on the second of six issues is out. Id have loved this wonderful series to have been finished by Christmas day. But even when the the Calvins of this world go back to pelting the Susie Derkins with snowballs indiscriminately, the fear of Santas reprisal far from their thoughts for eleven months more, my mind will still be squarely centered on Klaus, eagerly anticipating every issue.

    Regardless of your bias and expectations, there's no denying that this is a fun comic with some gorgeous art. It should help get you into the Christmas spirit, but I also hope that people won't let the end of the holiday season stop them from sticking with this series to the end. I'm excited to see where this goes. Read Full Review

    KLAUS is an intriguing concept that delivers a fun story, with some darker undertones. Grant Morrison and Dan Mora provide an entertaining and thrilling issue that continues to build the mythos of Klaus. BOOM! Studios has something awesome here that is great to read for the holiday season. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jennifer Cheng Dec 21, 2015

    Klaus' eventual victory is, of course, assured, so -- while the smaller gears of the story have some surprises -- the larger arc is predictable, and a showdown between the Baron and Klaus is inevitable. Despite these constraints, Morrison and Mora keep the suspense taut throughout with expert pacing. "Klaus" #2 is a great read, and its skillful reworking of myth is for all seasons. Read Full Review

    First Comics News - Richard Vasseur Dec 19, 2015

    This is not how you picture Santa Claus and Klaus is not him. Klaus is though a representation of how the stories of Santa may have started. Or maybe he is just something completely separate. Either way Klaus is a entertaining read with some good art. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Asa Giannini Dec 16, 2015

    As is, Klaus seems intent on continuing to flesh out the back story of its muscular, pre-jolly hero and his fight to bring toys to helpless tots everywhere in as dull a manner as possible. Perhaps the inevitable introduction of his traditional red outfit and reindeer friends will be worth the wait, but at this point, I highly doubt it. Read Full Review
