The temperature may be dropping outside, but things are sure heating up at your local comic shop, especially if you’re a DC Comics fan. This pre-Christmas week brings with it a whole bunch of holiday treats, including some highly anticipated installments from a few of our heavy hitters.
In the twelve years since its debut, Fables has expanded from a bestselling monthly comic book to become a franchise as robust as any other in comics. Snow White, Bigby Wolf, Rose Red and the rest of the Fabletown crew have appeared in multiple comic book spinoffs, crossovers, novels, graphic novels, fan conventions and recently, an acclaimed video game from Telltale Games. However, they’re about to enter a world that even the globetrotting Cinderella has yet to experience: the weekly world of digital first comics.
Holiday shopping getting you down? Is the thought of spending Christmas with your in-laws enough to make you consider moving to North Pole? Have you heard “Grandma Got Ran Over by a Reindeer” so… many… GOSH… DARN… TIMES that you’re on the brink of running someone down yourself? Well, don’t do that (no, really, please don’t do that). Instead, grab a copy of this week’s HARLEY QUINN HOLIDAY SPECIAL #1. It’s 48 pages of merriment and mayhem guaranteed to make even the biggest Scrooge smile.
