This Week's Releases: December 13, 2006

I love Christmas Specials.

Keep your snark to yourselves: they fill me with nostalgia and happiness.

I don't care if I'm killing comics - DCU Infinite Christmas Special will sit at the top of the stack as I hot the register at 2005 Will Eisner Spirit of Comics Retailer Award Winning Night Flight Comics.

There's also some Holiday fun coming from Marvel tomorrow. I've been reading Wolverine through the Civil War tie-ins, because the Guggenheim/Ramos collaboration has been quite a bit of fun. I'll be dropping the title like a really hot thing that was burning my hands as of next month, when Loeb/Bianchi begin their run. In the interim, however, comes a Christmas tale by the 2000 A.D. team of Rob Williams and Lawrence Campbell which will keep me reading the title for one more double-sized issue.

Fresh off my first reading of New Frontier, I'm also pretty excited about The Spirit. It won't be Eisner, but that doesn't mean it can't be damn good. I'm certainly hoping that Clark, Diana, and Bruce get up and stretch during Justice League Of America, and also hoping that The Escapists does something in it's last issue to redeem a disappointing run.

I desperately want Curses, but need to hold off until after the 25th. I don't much like waiting.
