Comics Alliance Holiday Card: Happy Hanukkah!
The eighth night of Hanukkah is upon us, and we at ComicsAlliance still want to sincerely (if unintentionally retroactively) wish the very best to all of our friends, family and valued readers who celebrated the festival of lights. Thanks to the help of our own David Wolkin and the artistic prowess of Nedroid creator Anthony Clark, we've posted a special card commemorating the annual observance in the Considerably Compelling ComicsAlliance Custom. Feel free to print or copy them and send to your friends so they'll know exactly how much you're thinking about them this holiday season!
50 Comic Book Covers Celebrating Thanksgiving [Art]
Last year we collected 35 comic book covers celebrating Thanksgiving and, in the spirit of being thankful that ComicsAlliance is around for yet another feast holiday, we've returned for a second helping that tacks on 15 more pieces of comic book covers and other artwork (we had to cheat a little, there's just not very many covers!) that mark the fourth Thursday of November here in the United States. You can see them all, presented in no particular order, after the jump. And yes, we did find even more examples of Donald Duck's contempt for his fellow bird the turkey. He's an... odd duck. *chortle!

Fans won't have to wait to celebrate, however, as Bandia will release the series' uncommonly athletic leader Akarenger (Red Ranger) in S.H. Figuarts action figure form this September.
