Yeah it's that time of year already. Marvel's getting ready to share the spirit with us. Normally I don't really get into these sort of comics. I mean, realistically, is anything really going to happen? Is there going to be any shocking event that will forever have an impact on the continuity of any of the characters involved. The way I see it, I'm not sure if it's worth my $4.
Buuuut, then you have to look at the list of creators involved. Dang it! Looks too good. Especially since Fred Hembeck's involved (you've read my interview with him, right?). Too much good talent on this. I think I have to get it. Plus Spidey and Wolvie "rushing a cake" to Aunt May's? How could you not want to see how that's going to turn out?
Tis the season to be a Marvel fan, as the Marvel Holiday Special dashes into stores with extra helpings of merry mutants, holiday cakes and…a rogue Santa? Featuring the talents of Mike Carey, C.B Cebulski, Fred Hembeck, Shaenon Garrity, Andrew Farago, Nelson, Alina Urusov, Lou Kang and more, this action packed extravaganza is perfect for the holidays! As Spider-Man and Wolverine rush to get a cake to Aunt May’s house, will a seemingly evil St Nick destroy the occasion? And just what happens when the Loners play Secret Santa? Plus, Power Pack looks back at holidays past! This extra-sized issue is wrapped up in a brand new cover (different than solicited) by fan-favorite artist Ron Lim!
It’s the perfect time of year to celebrate all you love in life and c’mon True Believer, what could be better than spending time with your favorite Marvel heroes? It’s the Marvel Holiday Special and it’s the best way to commemorate the season, bub!
