UNCANNY X-MEN #143 (1981)

It’s Christmas.  And Kitty is Jewish.

Whodathunk one of the best comic books about Christmas would focus on a Jew?  Because she’s a heathen, Kitty has no place to go.  She stays in the mansion with a Brood Queen, and has to prove herself.

And after a terrific battle, she does. 

It’s one of the greatest single issue comics of all time, and one of the best stories of the 1980s–a wonderful story with an absolutely perfect wrap-up ending (above). In fact, it is one of the 100 best single-issue stories of all time, according to this objectively accurate list.
