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.

X-FACTOR faces their biggest threat in issue 66 – THEIR $%#!ING SHIP!

While X-Factor tries to stop their vessel from the inside, Ship is attacking the city it’s hovering over. Here employs some special cameos, drawn in Portacio’s style. Both The Avengers and Fantastic Four are trying to stop this havoc X-Factor has created. Captain America and Sersi represent the Avengers. It’s interesting that I read this just after the announcement that Sersi has joined the MCU. She’ll make her debut in Eternals, but it’s only a matter of time until she joins her true alma mater in a new installment of Kevin Feige’s mightiest heroes. And for the FF, their two most interesting members are thrown out there: Thing and Human Torch. Also joining them is She-Hulk.
