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

    THE MERRY X-MEN HOLIDAY SPECIAL #1 is a wonderful excursion into one month in the lives of the X-Men. It combines the spirit of the holidays, a message, tears and laughs all in one package that nearly everyone should enjoy. Read Full Review

    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

    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
