It’s my cruelest portrayal of Superman that I’ve ever done, that makes him out to be the worst he can possibly be. I’m hoping people will really dig it, because it’s almost a roast of modern comics, including my own.

– Grant Morrison

Hal Jordan and the Blackstars will stop at nothing to bend the planet to its leader’s whims, and Earth’s greatest heroes pull out all the stops to fight these fascists. Betrayals of cosmic consequence abound! And why is Earth’s sun turning orange? We can only hope Superman figures that one out before it’s too late…

What has Hal Jordan done? Following the catastrophic events of The Green Lantern #12, no Green Lanterns can be found patrolling their space sectors…and not a single power ring lights the darkness. Across the universe, once-familiar faces now wear a different uniform and enforce a new type of galactic law. The Green Lantern Corps is dead-long live the Blackstars! Who are they? What are they? Answers will be revealed as the unstoppable Blackstars set their sights on the demons of Ysmault, Mongul…and a tiny, backwater planet called Earth. A dangerous new chapter of the Green Lantern mythology starts now!

He’s a myth. He’s a legend. He’s loved worldwide by children and adults alike…but does anyone truly know the origins of Santa Claus? Set in a dark fantastic past of myth and magic, Klaus tells the story of how Santa Claus really came to be—the tale of one man and his wolf against a totalitarian state and the ancient evil that sustains it. 

Award-winning author Grant Morrison (All-Star Superman, Happy!) and Eisner Award-nominated illustrator Dan Mora (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Go Go Power Rangers) revamp, reinvent, and reimagine a classic superhero for the 21st century, drawing on Santa’s roots in Viking lore and Siberian shamanism, and taking in the creepier side of Christmas with characters like the sinister Krampus. 

Klaus is “Santa Claus: Year One” and finally answers the burning question: what does Santa Claus do on the other 364 days a year?
