Product Description

Review

“The creator of The Child Thief, is back — and this time he’s taking on the Christmas Devil. Are you ready for a studly, Nordic Santa Claus, and his scary/sexy wife?” (Charlie Jane Anders, io9.com)

“Brom is that rare breed: a person who is skilled in more than one area of artistic expression. Here’s hoping that he will continue to share his dark and often beautiful dreams with us for many years to come.” (Christopher Paolini, bestelling author of Eragon on KRAMPUS)

“This illustrated horror novel by acclaimed gothic fantasy artist, illustrator, and novelist Brom (The Child Thief) is perfect for anyone who disdains a cozy, sentimental holiday story.” (Library Journal)

“Terrific. A wild ride--the idea sounded like a stretch and I’m not sure how many guys could have really pulled it off, but Brom sure has. I loved it. It hooked me and I couldn’t put it down. Plus, the illustrations are amazing.” (Mike Mignola, creator of Hellboy on KRAMPUS)

“Filled with action, fans will wonder whether Jesse joined the wrong side as increasingly it appears to him that Santa is evil. Fans will relish the Yule Lord ‘is coming to town.’” (SFRevu on KRAMPUS)

“[A] rollicking, non-stop, action-filled, violent and yet touching story.” (Examiner.com on KRAMPUS)

From the Back Cover

Santa Claus, my dear old friend, you are a thief, a traitor, a slanderer, a murderer, a liar, but worst of all you are a mockery of everything for which I stood. You have sung your last ho, ho, ho, for I am coming for your head. . . . I am coming to take back what is mine, to take back Yuletide . . .
—from Krampus

The author and artist of The Child Thief returns with a modern fabulist tale of Krampus, the Lord of Yule and the dark enemy of Santa Claus

One Christmas Eve in a small hollow in Boone County, West Virginia, struggling songwriter Jesse Walker witnesses a strange spectacle: seven devilish figures chasing a man in a red suit toward a sleigh and eight reindeer. When the reindeer leap skyward, taking the sleigh, devil men, and Santa into the clouds, screams follow. Moments later, a large sack plummets back to earth, a magical sack that thrusts the down-on-his-luck singer into the clutches of the terrifying Yule Lord, Krampus. But the lines between good and evil become blurred as Jesse's new master reveals many dark secrets about the cherry-cheeked Santa Claus, including how half a millennium ago the jolly old saint imprisoned Krampus and usurped his magic.

Now Santa's time is running short, for the Yule Lord is determined to have his retribution and reclaim Yuletide. If Jesse can survive this ancient feud, he might have the chance to redeem himself in his family's eyes, to save his own broken dreams, . . . and to help bring the magic of Yule to the impoverished folk of Boone County.

When I read The Child Thief, I wanted to read everything Brom had to offer. Turned out at the time, there wasn't anything else, so I was glad when this one came out, but never seemed to get round to reading it.

Now I have, and the only bad thing I can say is that I'm annoyed it took me so long.

In this story, we take on the age-old fight between the evil Santa Claus, and Krampus. The story portrays Santa as a seriously bad guy, full of corruption and murder, in addition to the whole present-giving part that we all know him for. It kinda makes it hard to know who we should be rooting for, which is weird.

Brom tells a great story, and this is no exception. I would have loved there to have been more on offer from the Belsnickels, but it was equally good to give each of them an ending. After finishing this one, I notice that one of the Belsnickels does feature in the next book; although if I were honest it's my least liked of the group. Hopefully we get more from the others too; especially Isabel's story as she looks for her son.

If you like stories, you won't go wrong here. There aren't many books by Brom, but when you see one you can be sure it's worthy of your attention. I can't wait for the next now, which is apparently out in October...

Another wonderful take on myths/fairy tales by Brom, whose art I am absurdly in love with. Though 'The Plucker' was a little boring, 'Child Thief' and 'Krampus: The Yule Lord' are fantastic, creepy, haunting and utterly delightful. 'Krampus' in particular is unusually grungy and earthy for a novel about a Christmas 'beast' that punishes naughty children at Yule by beating them with switches, or alternately stuffing them into a bag and dragging them off to be drowned.
The one disappointment of the story is how quickly Brom meets, greets and is done with certain characters, such as Santa's wife Perchta, and his six... um... other wives....
Nevertheless, I would absolutely recommend this book for any fan of modern takes on myths, legends or fairy tales, mocern gothic novels, or Brom in general.
Of course, if you like that sort of stuff, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend that you seek out 'Child Thief' by Brom as well.

I really enjoyed reading Krampus. Brom has again delivered a brilliant story. The illustrations are excellent although I would have loved more coloured ones. An easy quick read especially around Christmas. Perfect!

I had never heard of Krampus before reading this book. I found it fascinating to learn about him and do indeed find him more interesting than our Santa Claus. The story itself was a very good read, nail biting and impossible to put down. I recommend this book whole heartedly.

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.
