    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Dec 14, 2021

    Tis The Season To Be Freezin #1 will put DC fans in the holiday spirit, as their favorite characters get into the Christmas spirit. I definitely recommend it to readers of all shapes and sizes; at least one of these tales will put a smile on your face. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 14, 2021

    Some of these stories don't quite have the same holiday zing a good enough twist for its characters to call them must-read, but in general, each story is well crafted and well done. The opening story is certainly must-read though, and the general holiday cheer is unmistakable. You just don't get comics like this regularly, unless of course, you love DC Comics anthologies, in which case it's a tradition well worth investing in. Read Full Review

    Overall, this anthology didn't really live up to the quality level of past ones, but had some real high points that make it worth a recommendation. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Clint Theron Dec 14, 2021

    The Blue Snowman is one of my personal favorites, so I was ecstatic to see them given a chance to shine in this holiday special. Despite being labeled as a team-up, however, it was very clear that Harley Quinn was the star of the show with Blue Snowman tacked on for a wintry theme. Regardless, it's a fun adventure that bonds two completely unrelated characters. And who knows, maybe we'll see them together again in the future? (Probably not.) Read Full Review

    Not quite a lump of coal, but at best some quality socks. Nice, but not quite what you wanted. Read Full Review

    Anthologies are almost never all good. My favorite stories here were Bizarro Love Holiday and The Holiday Pact. None of these stories were bad aside from Bizarro V. Seasonal Depression: Dawn of Climate Change! The reason this story is bad is because Bizarro is so fucking annoying to read. I guess I commend the writer for being able to write such a thing, as it did seem consistent, but it's just so fucking annoying. It gave me a headache. Bizarro sucks. I don't know what it'll take for idiots to realize climate alarmism isn't a thing. Do they have to die of heat stroke during an unseasonal week of high temperatures? Do they have to burn to death in a wildfire? Do they have to drown in their home? What would it take? I'm guessing they'd die s more

    A bit of a mixed bag, but most of the stories are light, breezy fun. One Snowy Night by Grant and Dini was the best of the group IMO.

    A collection of very boring and bad stories, the only good ones were the first one with Robin and the one with Flash and Captain Cold. On the cringy side, we get another dose of climate alarmism in the Bizarro story, proof that you shouldn't give writing jobs to mentally-ill people and the JLQ story that truly baffled me. JLQ, really? What's next, JL black, JL latino, JL straight? How much pandering can one company do?

    I would note though that in a Christmas comic with 8 stories, only one story uses the phrase "Merry Christmas", most of them talk about "the holidays" or "solstice". If you think that's just a weird coincidence, you haven't been paying attention at the craziness out there lately.

    The Paul Deni story is on point, the rest of the book is absolute garbage. Nothing like a Christmas book that refers to the "Winter solstice" more than it does Christmas. Save your money kids.
