X-Men fans are sure to enjoy a happy holiday season this year, what with the weekly Uncanny X-Men relaunch in full swing and the X-Men even getting their own holiday special, Merry X-Men, hitting stores next week. And fulfilling our own holiday wishlist, the issue features a story by living legend Chris Claremont, the objectively best comic book writer of all time. Well, Christmas has come early, or, in this case, Chanukah, as Claremont’s entire story, with artists Terry and Rachel Dodson and colorist Chris Sotomayor, is revealed in a preview of the issue:
That’s right, it’s just one page. All the stories are, except the one that occurs on December 25th. And yes, just as the holiday season feels each year, you look forward to it for months, and then when it finally gets there, it feels like it’s over way too quickly.
Hopefully, Marvel will ring in the new year by announcing an ongoing series written by Claremont.
