“Klaus” has been a hit for BOOM! Studios, buoyed by its high-profile creative team — superstar writer Grant Morrison and artist Dan Mora — and its unexpected premise of an origin story for Santa Claus.
As revealed in the freshly released BOOM! Studios’ April 2016 solicitations, the next stop for “Klaus” will be a “Pen & Ink” edition released that month. It’s an oversized, 11″ x 17″ collection of the first two issues presented in Mora’s black-and-white inks, along with commentary from the creative team.
It’s the latest BOOM! release to get the behind-the-scenes “Pen & Ink” treatment, following prior series such as “Six-Gun Gorilla,” “Day Men,” “Hit” and “George Perez’s Sirens.” Here’s the complete solicitation:
