GALACTUS SAVES CHRISTMAS

Ho, ho, ho. There’s just two more sleeps until December 25th and to celebrate we present two illustrative gems to fill up your stocking. First up Marc Basile reminds us of the old adage, “A super-teleportation-canine is for life and not just for Christmas”. And below, Renato Stevanato envisions the emotional stress a game of musical chairs may have on one Bruce Banner.
