Klaus and The Crisis In Xmasville #1 Header

Klaus and the Crisis in Xmasville #1
Written by Grant Morrison
Art by Dan Mora
Letters by Ed Dukeshire
Cover by Dan Mora, John Cassady and Laura Martin, Frank Quitely
Boom! Studios
Release Date: December 6, 2017
Cover Price: $7.99

Now here is a comic that breathes all new life into the lyrical line “Santa Claus is Coming to Town.” In Klaus and the Crisis in Xmasville #1, our hero is determined to right wrongs by kicking the most ass possible. If you have read the previous comic then you know he is a stubborn immortal with a penchant for getting what he wants.

Klaus has no vested interest in the mortal world, for the most part. But when one of his favors is called in, he is forced to see that a century old enmity has been revived and that which he thought was finished, is in actuality not. But this is a can of worms that he is not quite initially prepared for, though that changes quickly.

Cover by Jae Lee, June Chung, Andre De Freitas
BOOM! Studios
Release Date: July 19, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

Sisters of Sorrow #1 is possibly one of the most violent comics I have read in months. So obviously I loved it from start to finish, of course. You know that saying that starts with “Hell hath no fury…” and has been around longer than we can remember? Yeah, it’s not wrong and this comic is a perfect reflection of that same righteous anger.

Victor LaValle’s Destroyer #2 (of 6)
Written by Victor LaValle
Art by Dietrich Smith
Colors by Joana Lafuente
Letters by Jim Campbell
Cover by Micaela Dawn
BOOM! Studios
Release Date: June 21, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

I seldom like modern twists on what I would consider a classical piece of literature, even when I’m not a huge fan of the original work. There is something almost perverse about modifying something that old. However, I will be the first to admit that sometimes what I think is going to be a modification or a reboot is instead an invigorating chapter or work unto itself. Case in point, Victor LaValle’s Destroyer #2 is a spectacular sequence of events that do not in any way tarnish Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Never would I have thought this would entrance me so.

The Unsound #1
Written by Cullen Bunn
Art by Jack T. Cole
Letters by Jom Campbell
Covers by Jack T. Cole, David Lafuente, Michael Dialynas
BOOM! Studios
Release Date: June 7, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

I’m pretty much game for anything written by Cullen Bunn, therefore it should come as no shock that The Unsound #1 would make its way onto my desk. Always creepy and a little twisted, his horror stories tend to be dependable sources of entertainment and each comic series unique.

This one finds a nurse making her way to her first day at work at a mental institution. But as she makes her way there, we see the world outside is just as dark, twisted, and suffering as anything that could be inside the hospital. That is, until we see what is inside.

Imagine a dimension where in 1958 the whole world goes wonky and suddenly there is no electricity, no technology. But as a trade off, mankind is presented with divinity. Not for themselves, per se, but suddenly every human has a god that helps them in a variety of ways with a variety of abilities. Everyone gains a powerful companion. Well, almost everyone, as we see in Godshaper #1.

Letters by Jim Campbell
Covers by Ashley A. Woods, Elsa Charretier & Margaux Saltel
Boom! Studios
Release Date: January 25, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

Ladycastle #1 is candid look into what would happen if all the knights and soldiers went off to war and (mostly) got themselves killed. Bordering on satirical, this story focuses on a group of ladies that refuse to accept the roles that their society tries to place on them. From a picky princess who isn’t going to marry a prince just because the king insists, to a blacksmith’s wife who is apparently just as good of a ‘smith as her husband.
