Sorry for the delay, folks! Today’s Top Five is the Top Five Comic Books about Thanksgiving!
5. Batman: The Long Halloween #2
Fairly routine issue – but it has Solomon Grundy AND Thanksgiving!
4. JSA #54
Another fairly routine issue, but pleasant enough.
3. Uncanny X-Men #308
Scott Lobdell’s best moments were when he could just write slice of life issues.
This was one of them.
A very strong issue (with good John Romita, Jr. artwork).
It also features a wedding proposal!!
2. Franklin Richards: Son of a Genius: Happy Franksgiving!
This just recently came out – see here why it was so awesome.
1. Power Pack #19
If you recall the original run of Power Pack at all, you will remember that the book never sold as well as it should have been selling, for the level of quality it had. Therefore, Louise Simonson often had guest-stars in the book. What helped is that two of Marvel’s biggest writers at the time, Chris Claremont and Walt Simonson, were big fans of the book as well, so they gladly lent their characters to Simonson to use (and they even worked her characters into THEIR comic, as well).
The pinnacle of this was this issue of Power Pack, where Wolverine, Kitty Pryde and Beta Ray Bill (among others) show up for Thanksgiving dinner with the Powers!
