    Krampus: The Yule Lord

    Just noticed this at the Powell's website.

    Gerald Brom, artist and author of the acclaimed illustrated novel The Child Thief, presents Krampus: The Yule Lord (Harper Voyager), a modern fabulist tale featuring the dark enemy of Santa Claus. One Christmas Eve in Boone County, West Virginia, the discovery of a magical sack thrusts struggling songwriter Jesse Walker into the clutches of the terrifying Krampus. Can Jesse help resolve an ancient feud — and bring the magic of Yule to the impoverished townspeople?

    It's funny, I had never heard of Krampus prior to this. It's an interesting folktale.

    I thought it was funny about Surly naming their bike Krampus . . .

    Rad bike fun story - there's a really good play about Krampus that our local theater puts on every winter. Also a few Krampus named brews that come out around the holidays.

    TV Krampus

    Two recent TV sitcoms have Krampus in an episode title, "Suburgatory" and "Family Guy."

    A few years back, a Krampus appeared in the Christmas episode of The Venture Brothers; the Krampus started beating and then humping Dr. Venture. It was awesome. There is a clip on YouTube but I'm blocked from YouTube at work.

    Krampus was on Scooby-Doo today.
    How wired into cartoon scriptwriters ARE surly to predict a sudden boost in the use of the name?
