Merry Fred Van Lente Day To All!

by  in Comic News Comment

I’ll admit, this was shaping up to be a dreary Fred Van Lente Day, indeed. I had forgotten all about the true meaning of Fred Van Lente Day!!

Two years ago, Fred Van Lente Day was a treat (as seen here, here and here). Last year was even more fun (as seen here, here, here, here, here, here and here). How would I be able to recapture the joy of Fred Van Lente Days past?

However, today, I was visited by three ghosts! And what they showed me uplifted my Van Lente Day spirits!! I rediscovered the true meaning of Fred Van Lente Day, which is to talk about Fred Van Lente comic books!! So throughout today, I will share with you what the ghosts showed me.

The Ghost of Fred Van Lente Past made me think to review a number of Fred Van Lente comics that were released since last Fred Van Lente Day.

The Ghost of Fred Van Lente Present had me do a review of the latest issue of Marvel Adventures: Spider-Man, which came out THIS week! Also, we have an interview with Fred Van Lente that some friends of mine helped to make…the strangest interview…EVER!!

Finally, The Ghost of Fred Van Lente Day FUTURE showed up, to share with me previews of Fred Van Lente comics in 2008, including an exclusive announcement of a top-secret brand NEW Fred Van Lente comic that will be released from Marvel in March (and I did a little interview with Fred about the new series, which you’ll also see).

So sit back, sing a Van Lente Day carol, and enjoy!

Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o’er the plains,
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains.

Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

Readers, why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be
Which inspire your heavenly song?

Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

Come to Comics Should Be Good,
Where all of you can see,
the man that we all adore,
Fred Van Lente.
