    Klaus is quite simply a joy to read. Every issue delivers on a simple yet epic story combined with gorgeous artwork, and while I'm a bit sad to see it go, I could easily see it being incorporated into a holiday tradition to read it every year. I would honestly recommend this book to anyone even the least bit interested in the premise, or simply want to pick up something festive to get themselves in the holiday spirit. Any praise that I give this series I don't believe could be enough, and it's something that I think people will be really missing out on if they pass it by. Read Full Review

    It's more a spiritual successor to All Star Superman than The Multiversity and that's going to be a refreshing thing for a very specific reader. More than most comics, Klaus makes a compelling case for itself to be added to the Christmas comics canon and your seasonal entertainment rotation. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Josh McCullough Aug 17, 2016

    Klausmade me feel like a kid again in all the best ways. It's Morrison at his best, alongside a sure to be A-star artist Dan Mora delivering pure brilliance in comic book form. Everything I love in Morrison comics is present here, in fact everything I love in comics is here; inspiring heroes, despicable villains, huge scale battles and an ending that makes you feel sad that it's over, but deep down you know the story never really ends.I have a feelingKlauswill be a new holiday favorite, and I encourage you all to read it and experience the story over and over.

    AIPT - Matthew J. Theriault Aug 17, 2016

    The reader has always known that Klaus' character arc demanded for him to become a supernaturally long-lived yuletide gift-giver. And yet, much to my own surprise, that thankfully hasn't meant he had to surrender the adventuring spirit of a comic book superhero which defined this incarnation of the character. Moreover, Morrison marries these to aspects in this parting thought. Since Saturnalia, solstice festivals such as Yule and Christmas have always been about the conquest of light over darkness, and long before comic books stories of heroes across all cultures have been about the same. Morrison's genius is in making explicit a connection so obvious it's easily overlooked; so simple it becomes sublime. These are words which should permeate popular culture on the same level as Moore's "Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night." After all, there've been many stories told about Santa before and after The Night Before Christmas " but none of them better than Klaus. Read Full Review

    i REALLY hope to see Grant Morrison and Dan Mora team-up again in the future!!! . . . . . the two together is truly magical! . . . . . . . . . . this is one of my favorite comics Grant Morrison has put out in a long while! . . . . . . . and this issue had almost slipped by me, but thankfully i caught on just in time to ride out this adventure from the very beginning. . . . . the series started out really strong and thankfully ended strong. . . . . . . the story was a lot of fun, and the art was wicked cool!!! . . . . . . . i can really see thing being made into one HELL of an awesome animated movie!!!! . . . . . it'd also make for a cool live action flick, but the art stylings of Dan Mora already look very animated. . . . . . . . even thoug more

    Only Grant Morrison would make DMT hallucinations (google "machine elves" for more info) a foundational part of the origin of Santa Claus and still end up with a comic that could play well to the mainstream. Well played, sir.
