HUNDRED WORD CHRISTMAS HIT #4 - UNCANNY X-MEN #143
Uncanny X-Men #143 by Chris Claremont and John Byrne
Based on the events in this issue it’s amazing Kitty Pride spent another Christmas with the X-Men!!
Essentially they all leave the mansion to spend Christmas with their friends/families leaving Kitty behind.
She’s not phased by this and decides she’ll celebrate Christmas with a hard workout in The Danger Room! Throw in a vengeful Nagari demon who gets into the mansion via a skylight(!), there’s a distinct Alien rather than Christmas feel to the story! Kitty’s parents do turn up at the end, but it feels contrived as a Christmas issue. Byrne’s art however is beautiful as always.
Rating 7 out of 10.
