Decking the halls with boughs. Putting up trees. Frantically searching online for gifts for the one annoying relative who always says they’re “fine with whatever!” We all have traditions this festive time of year. For Grant Morrison and Dan Mora, it’s releasing another chapter of their bonkers take on Santa: Klaus. And Kotaku has your exclusive look inside.

While Quentin Coldwater might technically be the central focus of Lev Grossman’s book series The Magicians — as well as Syfy’s adaptation of the series — a new comic book from Boom Studios is set to explore the life of one of Brakebills’ largely unsung heroines.
We’re so close to being free from the freezing cold of winter. Spring is nearly upon us, with its budding flowers, twittering birds, and the scent of pollen in the air. We’re not scientists, but we’re pretty sure it’s scientific fact that these are the perfect conditions to read a ton of new comics in. Good thing there’s some on the way!
Power Rangers has a mixed legacy when it comes to marking anniversaries. Forever Red, Wild Force’s all-Red-Ranger special, was fine. Legendary Battle, Super Megaforce’s spectacular botching of an incredible anniversary Sentai series, was... well, not fine.
At the end of this month the show will try again, but honestly, so far the comics are giving us one hell of a 25th anniversary special.
R.L. Stine, the master of ghoulish, goosebump-inducing kid’s horror, is making a welcome return to comics after his debut last year with the weird and sinister Man-Thing for Marvel. This time around, it’ll be a whole new series of spooky happenings, as part of a wide-sweeping new deal he has with Boom Studios.
Since it first began, Boom Studios' excellent Power Rangers series has been masterminded by writer Kyle Higgins - but that's about to change. A new creative team is on the way, and the currently-ongoing Ranger mashup event that is Shattered Grid means that some unfamiliar faces are going to be the new Power Rangers for a while.
This week, Boom Studios' Power Rangers comics are uniting Rangers from across 25 years of dramatically flipping away from giant pyrotechnics for the line's first major crossover event. To celebrate, the original Green Ranger himself has donned the spandex once more... but not to play the Tommy Oliver you remember.
The original Planet of the Apes is an all-time classic, but the beloved movie wasn't the first crack at bringing Pierre Boulle's work to the big screen. Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling wrote an early draft for the screenplay, featuring a ton of moments that never made it into the final film. And now, his story is being used as the basis for a new comic.
When you're a regular reader of a comic, you're always somewhat prepared to process whatever's about to happen in it. Forging that kind of relationship is a challenge that all new series with new characters have to face, and some comics handle it better than others. With that in mind, we've selected three new titles out this week that meet this challenge head-on - and have the potential to become your favourite new series.
A new year is upon us, filled with new opportunities and new hopes ... and lots of new comics for you read instead of fulfilling those new opportunities and hopes. Unless they were "read more comics," because boy howdy, do we have some new series we're looking forward to in the first few months of the year to show you!
