Here is the latest in our year-long look at one cool comic (whether it be a self-contained work, an ongoing comic or a run on a long-running title that featured multiple creative teams on it over the years) a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the comics posted so far!
We continue the Cool Christmas Comic Countdown with the impressive Marvel Holiday Special from 2005l…
This one-shot had a really strong trio of stories.
First, Shaenon Garrity, Roger Langridge and Al Gordon tell the tale of the Moloids trying to find Santa Claus to bring their missing leader back to them…
Man, Roger Langridge is an amazing comic book artist. He is like a freaking wordsmith, only with drawing. Garrity’s story is fun, no doubt, I don’t mean to take anything away there – it’s just, man, Roger Langridge. SOOO good.
Jeff Parker, Reilly Brown and Pat Davidson follow with a very cute Avengers story starring none other than that rascally villain, Santron!
By the by, the mistletoe joke at the first page was in reference to Iron Man and Hank Pym designing a roving mistletoe that is always above Spider Woman.
Finally, Mikes Carey and Perkins do yet another one of their awesome Christmas tales (they did three in a row for Marvel, I believe), this time showing a former supervillain forced into the role once more to provide for his family on Christmas…
A top notch collection of comic stories by Marvel, and all wrapped up by a bee-YOOOOO-tee-ful Stuart Immonen cover (then again, once I told you it was by Immonen, I figure the “beautiful” part is sort of implied, no?).
