    You Don't Read Comics - Brandon Masters Dec 18, 2018

    Each Holiday has some form of representation here, and there are enough character moments and X-Men in-jokes to please even the most jaded comic fan. This could be an awesome stocking stuffer for the X-Men fan in your life, or something to break out each year for a re-read. Take some of that extra Christmas cash, if you have it, and make sure to check this book out. You wont regret it. Read Full Review

    This is one that X-Men fans will enjoy and that can probably be revisited in future holiday seasons as well. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Forrest Hollingsworth Dec 5, 2018

    Despite a few shining moments of real heart or hilarity, this experiment in world building and characterization falls mostly flat. It's interesting to see which characters or stories these writers and artists gravitate towards but in the end there's just no room to develop anything remotely intriguing. Read Full Review

    Some of these were so cute, and then others were atrocious, it was such a mixed bag. I’m bumping the score up by a half point because of the good stories, but so sad that one of the lamest was the longest.

    Finally a good Anthology from Marvel! It taken them at least 2 other tries, but here's finally a good anthology. Not every story is good one, but most of them are enjoyable.

    I guess for this one, I can go through each story... seems a little unnecessary, but so are most of these anthologies! "Mele Kalikimaka!" is alright. It's cute, sure. "Never Again" seems very out of place. Why bring up Genosha now? And this doesn't feel like a holiday story at all. "#Hotclaws For Hanukkah" is funny enough. "Dreaming of a Wade Christmas" is clever. "I Hate Christmas" is appropriately dark for the holidays. Credit given for being a downer. "Jingle All the Wait A Minute..." is a continuation of "Mele Kalikimaka!" and it's still alright. "The Chiche Who Stole Christmas" is just a cliffnotes Gambit story, without any heart. "White Elephant" is fine, the punchline actually kind of works with what Sina Grace is doing with Iceman, more
