Episode Twenty One-Christmas Comics
35 mins. No news, and no what we’ve been reading. It’s our most streamlined, aerodynamic episode yet, and it’s all about Christmas themed comics. Also, singing cats, Angelina Jolie’s tattoos, Under Siege and a dodgy Christopher Walken impersonation.
Fables #56 in which Santa Claus is a natural fit, and he explains just how he visits kids the world over all in one night!
1980’s DC Super Star Holiday Special. Large format, 5 stories.
Vertigo’s 3 issue Winter’s Edge mini-series. Now re-printed!
JLA #60 which shows Plastic Man recounting a tale in which Santa Claus joins the Justice League.
The classic Lobo Paramilitary Christmas Special. Poor, poor Santa. And yes, there was a two issue Lobo/The Mask cross-over a decade ago.
The Tick Big Yule Log Special from 1997. Spoooon!
Batman Returns. Yes, it’s a festive superhero film, with lots of snow, nose biting and awkward speeches.
Dear Dracula. It’s a kids’ book showing young Sam writing to his hero Dracula instead of Santa. From Silverline Books.
