The prospect of a graphic novel featuring Krampus was enough to send me squealing and running for my checkbook. Sigh. . . It starts out well enough. We meet the world's worst department store Santa, who sobers up quickly when a horde of nasty, bitey "elves" descends on the mall. Santa's got mad survival skills, but will they be enough to save the good girls & boys when even the toys aren't playing nice on this Christmas to remember dismember? Then that story abruptly ends and we're onto the [...]
In the world of Michael Dougherty, Halloween reigns supreme however his foray into the world of Christmas is just as fun if not a little less cult likeThis graphic novel is good, it's not great but it's good, the artwork is really quite cool, particularly the second story, the thing that stops it from being great like the 2 Trick R Treat graphic novels is the fact that the stories really aren't that Christmas(Y) and barely feature Krampus. The main reason I bought this book was to add it to my c [...]
I was a little disappointed in this one. I was really looking forward to it, because I like all things Krampus. The book contained three short stories featuring encounters with Krampus and his minions. None of the stories were that great, and Krampus did not appear enough. The stories all take place on the same night in the same town, but otherwise barely intersect. This could have been so much better.
Such a good, creepy sort of retelling with an evil twist of Dicken's The Christmas Carol. This novel focuses on those jerks during the holiday season who ruin things for others, except Krampus has had his eye on you and he and his evil elves are going to teach you a lesson!Much more enjoyable than most holiday stories, but I also don't celebrate Christmas so all the more reason to enjoy this!
Loved this so much! The artwork was fantastic and the storyline was just twisted enough the keep me guessing. Admittedly, there were some weird plot holes and confusing sections, but not enough to keep me enjoying this immensely. Especially all the beautifully flawed characters :)
Not the best graphic novel. Good for the season. Check out his other stuff. It’s better.
A Krampus comic book! I expected great things. Mediocre, no origin story, punishment or killing for evil doers :(
Great artwork. Simple storylines. A fun little holiday read.
This novel was okay but it did not live up to my expectations. I was expecting it to be a story similar to what would happen in the movie, but instead it was more of an anthology where events seemed to be happening at random without clear direction in any of the stories. The first was mostly about a Santa who is very surly and easily irritated. Then the story transitions where Santa is now fighting to protect everyone whom he was cross with in the beginning and finally has a sense of purpose.The [...]
Like most collections of separate stories, I enjoyed some of these more than others. The story set in a mall is definitely a five, but I liked none of the rest as much. Michael Dougherty is good at coming up with interesting characters. With the exception of one of the stories, I was completely invested in all of them. Even though the plots are all likable old-fashioned horror tales, it is the characters that kept my attention. The homeless family needed more pages to fill out their characters c [...]
The blurb on the back describes what this is about perfectly. Three tales, involving Krampus; "At the most wonderful time of the year, a drunken mall Santa comes under siege from some very mischievous Christmas spirits, a dysfunctional cop becomes trapped with the man who ruined his life and the wealthy town “scrooge” must face the shadows from his past as his home comes under invasion from the homeless. This Christmas, Krampus will make sure they all get what they deserve." Reminds me of go [...]
We selected this book to be read by the RVA Horror Book Club as part of Krampus Week in Richmond. Because of that I don't want to say too much YET. I'll wait for after our discussion.Until then, this story is NOT the same as the soon-to-be-released movie. It is three different Krampus-y tales. They are brief but terrifying in the most festive of ways. Wonderful art and a fascinating interpretation of the traditional folklore ( I can't wait to elaborate on this one!). For those that are Christmas [...]
Still missing a good scary read? Still pining for Halloween? Don’t worry, for Christmas is also famous for scary stories. And Krampus: Shadow of Saint Nicholas will make you wonder if you’ve been bad enough for a visit from Krampus too. Gruss vom Krampus!I give Krampus: Shadow of Saint Nicholas 5 ‘You Better Watch Out! You Better Be Good!’ stars.Read the rest of the review at ismellsheep/2015/12/co
I loved the movie, Krampus, but I just found the graphic novel to only be okay. For me, it was the last story in particular that I felt was weakest. It was way too chaotic for me and the ending where everything is wrapped up in a nice little bow, different from the darker implication of the end of the movie, felt wrong.
Really excited for the film now! As a stand alone book though it's just alright. Hopefully this didn't use all the same twists and what not that the movie will, or I might have spoiled my expectations a little
