Put Two Holiday Specials In Your Stocking On The Wednesday Run

dc-rebirth-holiday-specialWith the holidays coming up, you’re due for some laid-back, hot chocolate in hand, relaxing holiday comic book reading.

It’s the best kind of comic book reading, believe me.

Now, you might be getting comics given to you as gifts. (Maybe there’s one or two from this list or this list.) But you might still want to pick up something to read that signifies the season. Something featuring the greatest superheroes and villains the world has ever known.

Lucky for you, both DC Comics and Marvel Comics are publishing their own holiday specials today… you might want to consider getting in on the zany, wintry, heroic fun!

Follow me after the jump for the low down on the DC Rebirth Holiday Special #1 and the Gwenpool Holiday Special: Merry Mix-Up #1!

This one sounds life unbridled holiday fun! With a cast of yuletide writers and artists, the DC Rebirth Holiday Special #1 brings you 96-pages of super heroic cheer!

Witness a Chanukah crisis for Huntress, A Flash family Christmas, Wonder Woman crashing John Constantine’s pagan party… and the return of a niche but notable characters called Detective Chimp!

Oh, and Paul Dini returns to one of his most famous protagonists in a Harley Quinn, story that wraps up every holiday yarn with a red, white, and black bow. She’s Santa’s ‘Lil Monster, after all!

Over in the Marvel Universe, we get Gwenpool and the Gwenpool Holiday Special: Merry Mix-Up #1.

Here, all of the usual holiday traditions seem to be a little …off, and it seems that Gwen is the only one who notices.

With guest appearances from Spider-Man, Red Skull, Punisher and the master of the one-liner, Deadpool himself, you know this adventure is going to be an enjoyable romp!

Both comics are under $10 a pop and you get a lot of story (stories!) and mayhem for your dollar. Whether wrapped up, or stuffed in a stocking, both the DC Rebirth Holiday Special #1 and the Gwenpool Holiday Special: Merry Mix-Up #1 will fill your winter days and nights with enjoyment.

Make the run to your local comic book shop today and pick them both up!
