Delightful and dark!, 30 Dec 2012
What do you get when you mix Santa Claus feuding with a giant horned philosophical demon, a paternal musical bum squaring off with a crooked police chief to get his wife and daughter back, and an underground drug family holding the reigns to a small, desolate southern town? The answer is a wacky, imaginative, and too often thought-provoking thrill ride from the twisted, brilliant mind of author Brom. "Krampus" is exactly the nutty holiday tradition you want to fall into. I'd be more worried you didn't, actually. Because Krampus, as they say, is coming to town.
P.S. If you enjoyed this book, do yourself a hell of a favor and buy Brom' s masterpiece "The Child Thief," a tour-de-force murderous re-imagining of Peter Pan.
