"I was drawn to the idea of framing Santa Claus as the world’s most famous superhero; the one most kids would already have a powerful identification with —and the one owned by no corporation." -- Grant Morrison

"I’m referencing the whole history and development of the Santa Claus concept, from Siberian shamanic roots in the hallucinogenic red-and-white amanita muscaria mushrooms — the potent ingredients of which were often imbibed by adepts after being strained through reindeer urine (seriously) — to legends of Odin and the Wild Hunt, to the Norwegian semi-pagan Julernisse and St. Nicholas, all the way to Coca-Cola’s popularization of those psychedelic mushroom colors and the 21st-century portrayals of Father Christmas, Kris Kringle, etc." -- Grant Morrison

'The last couple of creator-owned things I've done, "Nameless" and "Annihilator," honestly, was dealing with my mother's death and all of these dark subjects. Coming out of the other side of that, I just wanted to do a big, fantasy, sexy, superhero Santa. The feeling behind it is very genuine. It's like someone coming out of a tunnel.' -- Grant Morrison

"I wanted my own Superman, ultimately. So we're kind of doing the revamp stuff I usually do for DC, on a much more universal character. There are so many more stories we can tell. We can kind of go anywhere with this guy after this." -- Grant Morrison

"This is the tale of one man and his wolf against a totalitarian state and the ancient evil that sustains it. Part action thriller, part sword-and-sorcery, part romance, part science fiction, Klaus has given us free rein to revamp, reinvent and re-imagine a classic superhero for the 21st century. He’s making a list and he’s checking it twice. This Christmas it’s all about psychedelic shamanism, anti-authoritarian guerrilla gift-giving, and the jingle bells of freedom!" -- Grant Morrison

"I keep coming back to, why has no one thought of this? This is like a Mark Millar idea. It seems so obvious, but it's been very engrossing, going back to the roots of Santa, the Siberian shamanistic kind of version of it, and then you've got the character Sinterklaas, and everything built up towards the familiar guy that we know." -- Grant Morrison

I guess posting this has become somewhat of a tradition for me but it's mainly because there's very few EC Christmas stories.

'I thought it was such a franchise-able thing. It allows me to create my own Batman, my own Superman, my own Doctor Who. There's so much you can do with this character. Everyone's familiar with it, but no one really knows him. It was all about just getting to the roots of this thing. Here's a massive icon everyone around the world knows -- how deep can we dig, how can we we make him human? We take this quite seriously, and do it like Frank Miller did "Batman: Year One," but with Santa Claus.' -- Grant Morrison

Hello! I am new here, so I hope I'm not breaking any rules, but I thought this might interest some of you (or at least make you chuckle).

Yes Virginia, there is a Santron )

This is admittedly a repost from last year but alas there's only a few Christmas-themed EC stories...
