As of two weeks ago, DC was still talking about its upcoming Infinite Christmas special. Yesterday, the book came out, complete with a logo based on the Infinite Crisis logo.
Only it had been renamed the Infinite Holiday special, ruining the joke.
No word on why they changed it, but someone on the Newsarama forums suggested “Christmas on Infinite Earths” would have been even funnier.
Note to those who are likely to cite this as more evidence for the non-existent “War on Christmas:” Most of the stories in the book are Christmas stories. Many of them with the word in the title. And in a country where atheists are the most distrusted minority, the idea that Christians are being persecuted is laughable. (Why do I think this footnote is going to get more comments than the actual post?)
I thought I saw this issue in the comic shop on Wednesday – with the “Infinite Christmas” title.
Wizard referred to it as a “Holiday” special, too, here: http://www.wizarduniverse.com/magazine/wizard/002741440.cfm?page=4
Maybe I saw what I expected to see, in the comic shop?
