Here’s the Full Lineup of Characters & Creative Teams for Marvel’s Merry X-Men Holiday Special

Posted by November 2, 2018 Comment

Marvel has finally revealed the full lineup of creative teams for the upcoming Merry X-Men Holiday Special. Highlights include Chris Claremont, of course, writing an as-yet-untitled Kitty Pryde story with artist Terry Dodson, plus an Iceman story by Sina Grace and Cory Smith, a Magneto story by Cullen Bunn and Roland Boschi, plus Charlemagne Tha God, Christopher Daniels(!!!), Vita Ayala, Pere Perez, Rainbow Rowell, Tini Howard, Andy MacDonald, Tamra Bonvillain, Aubrey Sitterson, and a whole lot more.

Marvel’s Jordan White revealed the lineup in an interview on Marvel.com, saying:

It’s been a ton of fun and a ton of work. We knew we were going to be doing an X-Men Holiday Special, and my assistants, Annalise Bissa and Chris Robinson, were spitballing ideas when I came up with the idea to do it as an “Advent Comic” with one-page stories for every day. I thought it was a funny idea, but I probably would have assumed it was too crazy if both of them were not immediately excited about it. From there, I came up with the idea of there being one story that actually recurs a few times and culminates on Christmas Day. That was five of the 25 stories. From there, we divvied up the other 20 between us, editorially, and started reaching out to writers to see if they had a one-page holiday X-Story in them! Everyone was incredibly game for it, and we ended up with a great spread of creators, characters, and ideas!

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
