Bizarro Back Issues: Boxing Day With Captain Marvel! (1944)

boxing01

Christmas has once again come and gone, but before the holidays are over, there's one last celebration we all have to get through before New Year's rolls around and puts a cap on it: Boxing Day! The only problem is that the True Meaning of Boxing Day has been explored in roughly zero movies (as opposed to the True Meaning of Christmas, which has been pretty thoroughly dealt with in about 4,926), so I always just tend to think of it as a wintry celebration of people punching each other in the face.

I always try to cele

untitled-1-1355515538

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great images on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we've created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it's new, some of it's old, some of it's created by working p

The ‘Power Rangers Super Samurai’ Christmas Special Is The Best Clip Show Ever

samurai01

I haven't actually watched an episode of Power Rangers in around two decades. If there's one thing I love at this time of year, however, it's a Christmas Special, so when I saw that Power Rangers Super Samurai: Stuck On Christmas had been added to Netflix Instant, I was delighted. I settled in with a nice tall glass of

Marvel’s Christmas-Themed House Ads From The ’80s Are Bizarrely Jolly

housead00

It's not often that I run across a piece of comic book Christmas ephemera that I've never heard of, but a conversation with my cowriter, Chad Bowers, included five magical words that blew my mind: Iron Man's Santa Claus Armor.

Sadly, this didn't a

jla01

As you might expect, Santa Claus is a fixture in Christmas comics, but he's rarely having a very good time of it. At the very least, he tends to need help saving Christmas from just not happening, and often, he's in pretty bad shape himself. Some

If you're like me, you wait until the last minute to do things (like this post) and you're a fetishist for expensive hardcover books that are available only in absurdly limited numbers and packaged in exquisite slipcases and loaded with supplemental material and artwork.
