From 1988: that year's EAGLE HOLIDAY SPECIAL.

I think the weekly was beginning to slide past its prime at this point (or, to be more honest, I had probably got too old to appreciate whatever charms it had left) but I still find Holiday Specials a great way of dipping into a title and getting a sense of what was going on in the mother title.  Albeit, like annuals, sometimes reflecting a line-up that was months out of date and tailored to budget and an audience possibly unfamiliar with the ongoing strips but in need of some holiday distraction.

To that end, I picked up some more of these recently and I'll eventually add them to STARLOGGED.
