This being the first night of Chanukah, I figured it was a good time to post our header image.
This comes from the Marvel Holiday Special from 2011. The story, entitled “Chinese Food For Christmas” was scripted by Jamie S. Rich, penciled and inked by Paco Diaz, colored by Jean-Francois Beaulieu, lettered by Jeff Eckleberry.
It features Marvel’s stable of Jewish Super Heroes including: (top row, left to right) Moon Knight/Mark Specter, Songbird/Melissa Joan Gold, Kitty Pryde, The Thing/Ben Grimm, (bottom row) Sasquatch/ Walter Langkowski and Wiccan/Billy Kaplan.
I don’t know exactly where it came from but I was inspired to write Matt so if he’s not in character sorry. If you have any ideas for some more Christmas/Winter stories send them in I would love to have them. Hope you enjoy!
“Mom I’m sorry, I just… I can’t get a ticket. I’m not coming home for Christmas.” You apologize as you heard your Mother’s sniffle clearly trying to hold back tears.
