Have a Holly, Jolly Fred Van Lente Day!

Can you believe it's already that most wonderful time of the year?

The timing could hardly be any better this year for Fred Van Lente Day, as Thursday saw the release of THREE new Marvel Comics written by Fred!! WOW! What are the odds?!?

So expect reviews of those three books throughout the day.

In addition, for Fred Van Lente Day, I'll be having FIVE special TOP FIVEs sprinkled throughout the day, as well.

I'm going to reprint Alex Cox's recent in-depth (and quite good) interview with Fred. That'll be at 6 AM.

What would Fred Van Lente Day be without some Van Lente Day news? Well, we'll have a little scoop announced at noon.

Finally, the spotlight of this year's festivities - at 3:30 PM, Fred Van Lente himself - the man, the myth, the legend will be stopping by for a live online chat with the fans!

(All times are Eastern)

Awesome, right?

Oh, as an extra bonus - I finally broke down and added a "Fred Van Lente Day" category, so you can check it out to re-experience the joys of Fred Van Lente Days past!

I'm dreaming of a white Fred Van Lente Day

Just like the ones I used to know

Where the treetops glisten

and children listen

To hear sleigh bells in the snow.
