Image Holiday Special 2005
Image Comics
$11.80 (Paperback)
**** (out of five)

Holiday-themed comics usually suck.
Teaming up (insert famous hero name here) with Santa Claus to save the world is just silly any way you slice it.
So it’s nice when somebody takes that holiday theme and gets it right.
This anthology dips into some of the best of Image Comics’ talent and shows why they have a roster of titles that comic fans should be paying more attention to.
Highlights include:
• A Walking Dead story by Robert Kirkman, Charlie Adlard and Cliff Rathburn.
• PVP strips by Scott Kurtz.
• A Godland tale by Joe Casey, Tom Scioli, Nick Filardi and Jimmy Betancourt.
• A Mr. Glum/Savage Dragon-a-la-Sin-City tale by Erik Larsen that is worth the buying the book for all on it’s own.
• Shadowhawk, Grey Area, Spawn, Amazing Joy Buzzards, Noble Causes and more.
The only thing this book is missing is an Invincible story by Kirkman and Ryan Ottley and Fell by Warren Ellis and Ben Templesmith and it would get a perfect five-out-of-five.
At $11.80 (or $9.99 for our American friends) this is a steal of a book that is not to be missed.
