Grant Morrison and Dan Mora’s Klaus Returns in December

BOOM! Studios has announced Klaus and the Crying Snowman #1, the next chapter in the Eisner Award-nominated bold reimagining of the Santa Claus mythology for modern audiences from visionary writer Grant Morrison and superstar artist Dan Mora, debuting in December 2018.

Santa Claus is  a myth. He’s a legend. He’s loved worldwide by children and adults alike . . . but does anyone truly know his origin and greatest adventures? Launching in 2015, Klaus has revealed this hidden history, from a dark fantastic past of myth and magic, to modern stories of holiday cheer and terror.

Klaus and the Crying Snowman #1 continues the annual holiday tradition of new Klaus comic book releases, dating back to the franchise launch. Now, Klaus must help an absentee dad-turned-snowman make amends before melting away for good. And probably before he’s defeated by a pantheon of Norse Gods and their minions.

All in a day’s work for Santa Claus, right?

Klaus and the Crying Snowman #1 features a main cover and a variant cover both illustrated by Mora.

Waves from Ingrid Chabbert, Carole Maurel, and BOOM! Studios comes to shelves February 2019

BOOM! Studios has announced Waves, a new hardcover original graphic novel on-sale in February 2019 that poignantly captures a woman’s exploration of her pain in order to rediscover hope. Waves is a deeply moving story based on author Ingrid Chabbert’s own experiences trying to conceive, with art by Carole Maurel.

After years of difficulty trying to have children, a young couple finally announces their pregnancy, only to have the most joyous day of their lives replaced with one of unexpected heartbreak. Their relationship is put to the test as they forge ahead, working together to rebuild themselves amidst the churning tumult of devastating loss, and ultimately facing the soul-crushing reality that they may never conceive a child of their own.

Making her graphic novel debut with Waves, Ingrid Chabbert is the author of nearly sixty children’s books and continues to excite audiences of all ages worldwide. Artist Carole Maurel first worked in animation before devoting herself to comics full-time, drawing critical acclaim for her 2018 graphic novel Luisa: Now and Then.

Waves will be available for sale on February 27th, 2019 at local comic book shops and March 5th, 2019 at bookstores.
