We continue our holiday times with two tales here that really only use the holidays as a background setting. Also the interesting coincidence of our protagonists both being compared to angels (i didn't notice this when i first decided to post these two together!)

Stories from DCU Holiday Bash #1 and the DCU Holiday Special 2008 )

Tomorrow: Superboy and the Legion wonder why the "peace" has to just be "on earth"!

For those Babs fans among us who picked up Batman annual #27 and/or Detective Comics annual #11, we got a pleasant little surprise in this backup story by Amanda McMurray and Kelley Jones.

Kelley Jones is a name well-known to Bat-fans. Aside from his run with Doug Moench from '95 to '98 (which has had various revivals these days), I've always known him best for his covers during the Knightfall era. My older brother had a number of the issues, and I'd never read any of the interiors, but the covers alone were enough to impress on me as a kid. Jones' expressionistic and moody style did a lot to shape the way I looked at Gotham for a long time.

Amanda McMurray's a relative newcomer to the industry. I can only find a few stories here and there credited to her. Some of you may recall her Huntress story from last year's DCU Holiday Special with Rafael Albuquerque, and she apparently did the Superman/Doctor Light segment in the recent JLA 80-Page Giant (anything good in that bit?). Either way, though I certainly liked the Huntress story on the whole better than this one, there are part of this I like, and for that, I wish McMurray luck on whatever the future may hold.
