Marginally Musical

0

Sergio Aragones, the master of Mad marginals, remembers the wassailers who infused Christmas spirit upon their neighbors by lifting high their voices with Christmas carols.

Carols, or noels, became popular in the 19th century despite having been around for hundreds of years prior.

Senor Aragones has only been around since 1937, but has made an impact with his gifted quirkiness first displayed in Mad Magazine. His influence spread as National Periodicals hired him in the 1960s to illustrate such titles as The Adventures of Jerry Lewis, Angel and the Ape, Inferior Five and Young Romance. His most famous creation is Groo, the Wanderer, a pastiche of Robert E, Howards’ Hyborian Age-barbarian, Conan.

Wonder Woman is finally compelled to visit Paradise Island when she fails to make contact with her Amazon sisters. Aquaman attempts to follow, but is foiled until quick thinking permits him to find nourishment.

When the two do meet it is in the midst of a war between the merpeople of Atlantis and the Amazons of Paradise Island. The island has drifted thousands of miles to position itself over the city of Atlantis.

Mars delivers a soliloquy to Wonder Woman divulging his plan to pit the two races against each other in order for the god to feed. Aquaman and friend overhear the plot and are later able to defend Wonder Woman’s actions at the Hall of Justice.

Mars is taken into custody to stand accountable for his crime of war.

Readers are promised a team up with Wonder Woman and Black Canary in the following issue as the Amazon continues her labors.

DC’s Nuclear Winter Special

Rip Hunter, Time Master, plays storyteller to a group of post-apocalyptic survivors sometime in the mid-21st century who are bent on eating their guest.

DC’s Nuclear Winter Special

Of the 10 “cataclysmic carols,” Flash, Super Girl, Firestorm and Green Arrow top the list.

Hunter stalls for time, waiting for his time sphere to recharge, by relating stories starring the stable of DC characters. This year’s special is hit or miss in wringing emotion from readers.

As stated above, Flash’s “Once and Future,” Super Girl’s “Last Daughters,” Firestorm’s “Last Christmas” and Green Arrow’s “Super Birds of Christmas past, Present and Future” are the headliners.

“Last Christmas” may be the best of that group. Paul Dini is the writer, so no surprise there.

The remainder of the book is taken up by Damion Wayne having assumed the mantle of Batman in “Warmth.”
Superman’s “Memory Hearth” by Steve Orlando is forgettable.

“Where Light Cannot Reach” capitalizes on Aquaman and his silver screen blockbuster that has already taken China by storm.

Surprise guest Kamandi stars in “Northern Lights.”

Finally, Catwoman appears in “Nine Lives.”

Not as memorable as the DC Rebirth Holiday Special. Just nice to see DC continues to offer Christmas comics each year.
