KLAUS AND THE LIFE & TIMES OF JOE CHRISTMAS (Grant Morrison / Dan Mora)

C’est la tradition : chaque année, Grant Morrison et Dan Mora nous racontent une nouvelle aventure de Klaus. Mais cette fois-ci, les deux auteurs nous proposent quelque chose d’un peu différent, une bande dessinée muette construite comme un calendrier de l’Avent.

Klaus and the life & times of Joe Christmas sortira le 18 décembre.

« Nothing’s calm but all is bright in this once-in-a-lifetime special Klaus event – a completely silent issue! Meet Joe Christmas, a regular human man who’s known Klaus all his life, and fought beside him for most of it. Each of the 25 two-page vertical spreads will feature a new Christmas adventure with stunning illustrations by Dan Mora depicting a day in the incredible life of Joe Christmas, a very special young boy who grows up to become one of Klaus’ staunchest allies and closest friends. »

Ah tiens donc, faut voir ce que ça donne.

Grant Morrison :

"As ever, working with Dan Mora on a new Klaus story is a highlight of my year. For this year’s special we decided to do something a little different by creating a Christmas advent calendar story featuring 25 iconic scenes from the adventures of Klaus.

« We wanted to give Dan free rein for his remarkable creativity and imagination while also providing a narrative element that allows the images to tell the exciting, poignant and completely wordless life story of one Joe Christmas, from his humble beginnings to his inevitable end, as we see how that life has been affected and changed by his encounters and adventures with Klaus. »

Dan Mora :

“Every year I look forward to working with Grant on a brand new issue of Klaus. I love visiting this world and drawing all new characters, monsters, and planets, but this year is going to be very special because the entire issue is silent. That means I’ve worked overtime to capture every nuance of storytelling, character, and action to bring this Klaus story to life and introduce everyone to the Life & Times Of Joe Christmas, making this a very exciting challenge for me and hopefully a very exciting issue for fans."
