How This Book Came To Be:
Originally it was set up as a one-shot for Christmas about a unknown creature Santa made, Nacht Klaue, to fight the forces of ultimate evil as he made his delivery on Christmas night. While working on the book, I decided to make it a yearly one-shot. It was derailed a bit as there were MANY Santa adaptations from 2013-2016 so I took a break, but now I’m moving ahead to finish up his mini-series! The story is told in a classic fable style, with no dialogue, just narration boxes. Nacht Klaue was also the first time I used an ink brush pen and markers to make a comic.
