New Arrivals: December 3, 2008

Christmas specials are nothing new in any medium, but its always delightful to see what zany hijinks a character can get into that's Christmas-y and ends up being completely out of character for them. Sort of. I think you know what I mean. Anyhoo, for the month of December I'm going to try and find said holiday themed comics that you can enjoy without worry of tie-ins, crossovers or endless variants. This week's pick? Punisher Max Xmas Special #1. Its only fitting that I select a Punisher comic as the pick this week with Punisher: War Zone coming out this Friday. But this book will be nothing like the movie I'm sure (except for maybe the violence). Frank Castle is charged with keeping a mobster and his pregnant wife safe from rival gangsters. Oh, and three angry wise-guys and a pimp named Shepherd. The book will set you back $3.99. Also, this week Secret Invasion #8 hits stores as well, so be sure to pick that one up if you're looking for a non-holiday related book. Enjoy! New Arrivals: December 3, 2008
