He knows when you are sleeping…he knows when you’re awake. And in advance of Krampus, directed by Trick ‘r Treat’s Michael Dougherty (starring Adam Scott and Toni Collette), Legendary Comics has released Krampus: Shadow of Saint Nicholas, a movie prequel graphic novel.

Based on the ancient folklore of an anti-Santa Claus who does a little more than just leave coal in the stockings of naughty children, the graphic novel explores the tale of Krampus with three horror-filled tales from Dougherty, and artists Fiona Staples (Saga), Christian Dibari (Hoax Hunters), Maan House (Witchblade), and Stuart Sayger (Bram Stoker’s Death Ship). View exclusive preview pages below.

Krampus hits movie theaters Dec. 4, and Krampus: Shadow of Saint Nicholas is available in comic shops today.
