Thank you! I was the person last time that asked if you might do a column on holiday comics. I cant believe it YOU DID!! These are my favorite comics. There is just something about them that make these comics special. My personal favorites are the DC Comics Holiday specials. Especially the early ones. I like Christmas with The Superhero's by DC the most out of my collection of holiday comics. . I only have the '88 and '89 issues though. I just don't understand why they would stop doing them. I know sells from them aren't going to reach Ultimate Spider-Man or Batman:Hush numbers but they do sell. The last one I remember coming out from the big two is the Ant-Man Christmas Marvel Knights special.I could be wrong. JSA #54 has them eating Thanksgiving with the JLA and it looks like the next issue will have Santa in it. It doesn't look like we will be getting a Jingle Belle comic this year. Too bad. Maybe next year.
