KLAUS (2015) – Looking Back at Grant Morrison and Dan Mora’s Epic Tale

Morrison managed to take a simple and well known character and made an epic origin story that manages to be both serious and fun. The writing is perfect and manages to make certain aspects that would normally seem silly, like Klaus saying “Ho Ho Ho” after cutting the demon’s head, work but also badass. Though there are a few things that are never fully explained, such as the nature of the forrest spirits, Morrison’s writing helps in still investing us in what’s going on. Jonas’s development from a selfish kid you want to punch to a more selfless kid willing to sacrifice himself is believable and my favorite part of the comic.
