    Overall this issue was yet another amazing issue for this series, the artwork in particular being a huge selling point. Every image in this book is stunning, and with a plot that supports the amazing artwork and allows for readers of any age, I could easily see this series being a staple for years to come of how to do a seasonal comic book right. I can not recommend this series more highly, and even though it may be summer, this is a book that everyone should be reading to get into the Christmas spirit all year round. Read Full Review

    It goes without saying that the master of the medium Morrison has written in Klaus a great comic, both for the series as a whole and issue #6 in particular. It's well paced, action packed, and crammed with compelling characters. But where he truly deserves praise is just how well researched Klaus is, how smartly and subtly he synthesizes the real pagan roots behind Santa Claus with the superhero tropes the comics medium demands. Small touches like the meaning of several Anglo-Saxon runes are sure to be overlooked by the vast majority of readers, but such details demonstrate the depth of Morrison's world-building. And like Klaus himself, that which Morrison builds is made with magic and always gives the gift of joy. Read Full Review

    "Klaus" #6 is the penultimate book of this limited series, and that's exactly what I don't like about it; as much as I want to know how the good guys are going to save the day, I don't want to see it end. "Klaus" is a masterful reimagining of Santa's origins as told for grown-ups. This definitely isn't your innocent Rankin/Bass "Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town" rendition of the story -- and issue #6 sets up what will have to be a concussive supernatural conclusion in the final issue.

    This issue definitely stands out from the rest in the best way, creatively. Morrison and Mora have really outdone themselves in turning this story from fantasy to horror. There’s only one issue left, and I can’t wait to see what happens. No matter what way it goes, I know it’ll be impressive with this creative team. Keep reading to find out how Santa’s story ends!
