Wraith: Welcome to Christmasland (sometimes stylized as WRA1TH: Welcome to Christmasland) is a comic book miniseries written by Joe Hill, illustrated by C. P. Wilson III and published by IDW Publishing. It is a prequel to Hill's 2013 novel NOS4A2 and is partially derived from material cut from the novel.[1] Hill describes it as a "sleazy '80s horror film I always wanted to do." [2]


The story follows a group of unlucky cops and prisoners who find themselves in Christmasland, where they are terrorized by Charlie Manx and his abominable "children".
