Nightmares Before Christmas

December 17, 2022

If you're looking for something for the horror fan in your life this holiday season (or your dark soul just wants a break from the bright lights and cheery carols) there are some fantastic graphic novels available that will be the perfect fit!

The Last Christmas: What happens to Santa after the apocalypse hits? Even the North Pole is not spared from tragedy, and the world is overrun with evil. But there is still one boy who believes. Will that be enough?

Batman: Noel: Inspired by Charles Dicken's classic story A Christmas Carol, this tale features different interpretations of The Dark Knight, along with his enemies and allies, in different eras of past, present, and future. There are many references to A Christmas Carol strewn throughout, and this really is a perfect darker read for the holiday season.

Wraith: Welcome to Christmasland: This graphic novel is a follow up to Joe Hill's celebrated work NOS4A2, but can be read as a standalone story. Delve into the madhouse world of Christmasland, and enjoy the intricate and detailed art of this bloody, beautiful, book.

Klaus: Comic icon Grant Morrison brings his take on a dark Christmas story to us with Klaus – an exploration into Santa's origins. It's the tale of one man and his wolf against a totalitarian state and the ancient evil that sustains it.

There are also a number of Christmas themed one shots hitting our shelves this month, including Happy Horror Days, a fun romp through Riverdale where Krampus will go toe to toe against Werejug!
