“Terrific. A wild ride….I loved it. It hooked me and I couldn’t put it down.”
—Mike Mignola, creator of Hellboy

Acclaimed author and artist Brom raised eyebrows and pulse rates with The Child Thief, his grim, brilliantly audacious, gorgeously illustrated reimagining of the Peter Pan legend. So what does this innovative fantasist do for an encore? He tinkers darkly with the beloved mythology of Santa Claus. Set in Appalachia, Krampus the Yule Lord is a twisted fairytale about a failed West Virginia songwriter who gets ensnared on Christmas Eve in an eternal war between a not-so-saintly Saint Nick and his dark enemy Krampus, aka Black Peter, an ancient trickster demon. Krampus the Yule Lord is Gregory Maguire (Wicked) meets Susanna Clarke (Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell) in the realm of Guillermo Del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth, as Clive Barker (Mr. B. Gone) works his dark sorcery from the shadows. Once again featuring Brom’s chillingly beautiful artwork throughout, Krampus the Yule Lord is a feast of wonder straight from the kitchen of Sweeney Todd.

    " I loved this so much! Brom has a way of making all of his characters kind of grey and morally ambiguous. There are no clear-cut good guys or bad guys, which is sort of awesome. One thing's for sure though, I'll be decorating a Yule tree and putting out offerings for Krampus this holiday season! "

    " Dark, funny and sad. I enjoyed the blend of Norse mythology with the Santa Claus myth. If you can get past the cover, this is a great read. I couldn't put it down. It made me think of American Gods by Neil Gaiman but not as complicated. None of his books are for children but adults who still enjoy children's literature and mythology will enjoy his dark fantasy blend. "
