Happy Holidays! We’re embracing the spirit of togetherness by reading seasonal comics by both DC AND Marvel!

For DC, we’re covering Gotham Central #12-15 about a murderous rampage from the Joker just days before Christmas.

For Marvel, it's Uncanny X-Men #143 featuring Kitty Pryde alone at the X-Mansion while everyone is away on vacation.

Join us and see if you can figure out who secretly got drunk on eggnog while we recorded.
