    The maturity of the story is also a check-mark in the positive column. While it doesn't have the weighty gravitas of Fables, it certainly isn't a kids book. The mystery that continues to deepen isn't a cheap and flighty tale through fantasyland. There are adult crimes afoot, and the cadre of villains has thought this through. Krampus! isn't a trivial tale of who stole the Toothfairys wand, its a power struggle that threatens the holidays that is both expertly written and beautifully drawn. Read Full Review

    This book is still one of the better examples of bawdy, joyfully violent fun and even endures beyond the holiday season, so I still recommend giving this look at one of Christmas most forgotten figures a look. The characters may not be fully fleshed out, but it has only been two issues and what I have seen is likable enough and compelling enough as well. The visuals, also, do a great job sustaining the books tone and purpose. Read Full Review

    This issue had some exciting moments, as well as showing an interesting future for the series. It was however a slight let down due to it's inconsistent pacing. In spite of that I do still recommend this issue as it was an overall enjoyable read. Read Full Review

    I wish there was a bit more to say about this issue. I don't know if I really need to review each issue, but I'll definitely read it until the end. I just don't see a lot happening that will bring about something new to say each time. Of course the cliffhanger could change that, but again I'm not a fan of what happened so the change could be worse. If you really liked the first issue then check this issue out, but if you were kind of on the fence with it then you'll come to a decision with this issue for sure. Read Full Review
