Celebrating New Year’s With Joe Kelly Comics

Finally, in Joe Kelly’s final issue of his Action Comics run, it was also a New Year’s story, with Superman and Lois celebrating 19 New Year’s celebrations in a single day!

Superman also helps people along the way. The art in the issue is by a whole bunch of different artists. It ends with a throwback to the first villain that Superman fought in Kelly’s Action Comics run…

Very heartwarming stuff.

Finally, a story from when Joe Kelly was part of the Amazing Spider-Man “brain trust” (the “brain trust” was a group of writers who co-wrote Amazing Spider-Man when it was coming out three times a month. They would trade off arcs. When Kelly joined, the group was Joe Kelly, Mark Waid, Marc Guggenheim, and Dan Slott. Eventually, they just reduced the release schedule to twice a month and had Slott be the sole writer). Amazing Spider-Man #617 was drawn by Max Fiumara and Fabio D’Auria and it was set during New Year’s…

The issue was a heartwarming story that involved the Rhino being challenged by a new Rhino. However, the former Rhino had found love and Spider-Man convinced him that there is honor in passing up a fight to help the one you love…

Of course, this being comics, she gets murdered later, but in the short term, this issue was very sweet!

Happy New Year’s, everyone!
