Jingle Your Way To “DC Universe Holiday Special 2017 #1” On The Wednesday Run

Outside, the snow is falling and friends are calling “yoo-hoo!”

Come on, it’s lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you!

Well, we’re inching closer to the end-of-year holiday season. Maybe you’ve noticed that your local mall is decked to the gills in tinsel? Perhaps you’ve guiltily watched one or two bad made-for-TV holiday movies on some run-of-the-mill specialty channel (so that’s what Winnie Cooper is up to these days! Also, she was great!)? Maybe you’ve been busily writing, then scratching, then re-writing various dinner engagements with friends and family in your December calendar?

Well, DC Comics and their stable of writers and artists have been busy getting various superheroes and villains in the spirit of the season, working tirelessly on a holiday-themed production of their own.

Today sees its very timely release!

Get set to jingle all the way to the DC Universe Holiday Special 2017 #1!

31 Days Of Horror: The Wednesday Run Goes BOO! With “DC House Of Horror #1”

We’re literally six sleeps away from one of the best times of year!

And with all the little ghosts and ghouls and goblins (and, let’s face it, superheroes) ringing your doorbell and asking for tricks or treats next Tuesday evening, you may want to shake things up a bit.

Instead of the usual candy and chocolate bars and chip bags handed out on Halloween, why not a comic book as a loot bag stuffer?

It’s a great idea: the gift of four-colour literacy! Of pop culture personified! Of imagination and excitement!

Then again, it can get pricey handing out all those comics.

So, treat yourself (or a select few) to some comic book scares this Halloween with the just-released, over-sized, frightfully awesome, completely fun, and altogether appropriate, DC House of Horror #1!

Obscurity Today But LEGENDS OF TOMORROW #1 On The Wednesday Run

Legends of Tomorrow #1 coverLegends of Tomorrow: the television series that united the DC cable programming universe!

Legends of Tomorrow: the big-budget weekly broadcast series that spun out of the hit The Flash, which, in turn spun out of the hit Arrow.

Legends of Tomorrow: the highly anticipated pop culture phenomenon that, although childishly fun, up until now has really only hinted at comic book fan kind of fun.

The series has been a bit of a guilty pleasure for me and many other viewers – as it aims to emulate the highs of the shows that birthed it Still, it’s pretty awesome to see Rip Hunter on television.

But if you think that Legends of Tomorrow doesn’t have long and storied following, you’d be wrong. Four-colour wrong, in fact. And the brand new DC Comics releases of the extra-sized Legends of Tomorrow #1, out today, aims to prove that!

Follow me after the jump for what is sure to be throw back comic book excitement!
