‘Twas the night before Christmas all through the Marvel ‘verse, all the heroes were partying — except for Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur! In issue #37 of this ongoing series, our favorite girl genius, Lunella Lafayette, is setting aside her usual grinchiness to give Christmas a try — by being good all year and then hacking the Santa tracker to find out where the jolly giant is throughout Christmas Eve.
Marvel provided The Beat with an exclusive preview of the first four pages of the new issue, on sale Nov. 21. It’s time to get into the Christmas spirit, Lunella style! Take a look at the preview below and be sure to pick up a copy of Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #37 at your local comic shop on Wednesday.
