“Terrific. A wild ride….I loved it. It hooked me and I couldn’t put it down.”
—Mike Mignola, creator of Hellboy

"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, New York Times bestselling author of Eragon

Acclaimed author and artist Brom raised eyebrows and pulse rates with The Child Thief, his grim, brilliantly audacious, gorgeously illustrated reimagining of the Peter Pan legend. So what does this innovative fantasist do for an encore? He tinkers darkly with the beloved mythology of Santa Claus. Set in Appalachia, Krampus the Yule Lord is a twisted fairytale about a failed West Virginia songwriter who gets ensnared on Christmas Eve in an eternal war between a not-so-saintly Saint Nick and his dark enemy Krampus, aka Black Peter, an ancient trickster demon. Krampus the Yule Lord is Gregory Maguire (Wicked) meets Susanna Clarke (Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell) in the realm of Guillermo Del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth, as Clive Barker (Mr. B. Gone) works his dark sorcery from the shadows. Once again featuring Brom’s chillingly beautiful artwork throughout, Krampus the Yule Lord is a feast of wonder straight from the kitchen of Sweeney Todd.

Over the past few decades, Brom has lent his distinctive vision to all facets of the creative industries, from novels and games to comics and film. In addition toThe Child Thief, he is the author of two award-winning illustrated horror novels,The PluckerandThe Devil's Rose. Brom is currently kept in a dank cellar somewhere just outside...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from traditional Christmas read for me each and every year... This is my first encounter with one of Brom's books and definitely will not be a last. I was captivated by Krampus; and must say I did enjoy Santa's slaughter. I found myself intrigued by Krampus's struggles, annoyances, and compelling need for validation. There was something satisfying about the way he charmed and disgusted me at the same time - mostly charming me - humoring my overall apathy towards things that should matter. I just might give big, tall, dark, and ugly another read this Christmas. This book nears the top of my favorites list and will be a perfect Christmas read for me each and every year. I desperately want to read Brom's novel The Child Thief now...
