MERRY KI YAY, FATHER CHRISTMAS.
A most happy holiday and hospitable New Year to you, true believers! Welcome to a special (very late) holiday edition of Ink Tank, where we jolly merrymakers are talking about the jolliest of all Christmas classics to be put to celluloid on the silver screen. Just because the new year is upon us is no excuse not to have one last burst of holiday joy. Here’s the presents you’ll find under our digital tree:
- Which is the better holiday movie? Die Hard or Lethal Weapon? See Alex and Devon settle the debate once and for all?
- The gang shares their favorite Christmas films. Did yours make the list?
- Warning: there’s a lot of Chevy Chase.
- Alex and Max talk Jim Hensen, because nothing says warm holiday feelings like the Muppets. Puppets rule. We’re just saying.
That’s all we’ve got in our stocking for the holidays, folks. Hope whatever you celebrated over the holidays was fantastic (even if was just the spirit of comics). We’ll be back with our first proper episode of 2015 next week. Now let’s all enjoy the best literary work of all time: “The Dark Knight Before Christmas.”
Trade of the Week: A Tale of Sand by Jim Hensen & Jerry Juhl with art by Ramon Perez. See an unproduced Jim Henson script come to life as comic. What more could you want?
“Die Hard” or “Lethal Weapon?” What’s your holiday film tradition? Let me know on Twitter @MaxMielecki or in the letter columns below.
