THN #725 Comic Reviews: The Cosmic Longbox Celebrates Back Issue Holiday Comics!

The Cosmic Longbox is agnostic but can’t resist HOLIDAY COMICS!

In this episode: the Cosmic Longbox is feeling holly AND jolly AND forcing the nerds to review and discuss 8 classic comic books set during the winter holidays! As usual, Joe and Matt use the THN “Buy It,” “Skim It,” or “Leave It” rating system, which makes even less sense than a binary “Naughty or Nice List”… Ho! Ho! Ho! IT’S HOLIDAY COMIC REVIEW TIME IN THE ZIGGURAT!
