Marvel Holiday Special

    (Marvel, 1991-1997, 2005-2007)
™ and ©1991 Marvel Entertainment Group

A one-shot for the 1991 Christmas season, this special features many of the most popular Marvel characters in holiday storylines. This is not to say that the stories are all sweetness and light. The Fantastic Four feature is a warm tribute to Charles Dickens’ Scrooge, with young Franklin Richards rewarded for donating his last quarter to a needy apparition. On the other hand, the Punisher storyline seems to indicate that his idea of a merry Christmas is a mob deal that goes sour, killing his target for him. Other stories feature the X-Men, Captain America, Ghost Rider, Captain Ultra, and Spider-Man. All are good, some are excellent. Overall, The Marvel Holiday Special, is a great holiday season present from Marvel.
