Nick Perks drew this Santa/Superman piece. So how this works is that every day until Christmas Eve, you can click on the current day’s Advent Calendar post and it’ll have a story in it that is part of my countdown of the 24 Greatest Superman Christmas Comics ever told! And I’ll add links to the previous days in each new installment.
Here’s Day 1, #24 on the countdown.
Here’s Day 2, #23 on the countdown.
And now for Day 3, #22 on the countdown is…
“The Gift” from “DC Holiday Bash II”, written and penciled by Dan Jurgens, with inks by Brett Breeding.
This is a very simple story, but a good one. It’s a three-pager set in Superman’s earliest days in Metropolis shown in John Byrne’s “Man of Steel” (Luthor still has hair, for instance) that involved Superman getting his cape damaged in a fight with Luthor’s men but then discovered that his parents got him a new cape for Christmas.
It’s a very adorable piece by Jurgens. I love the whole “big little kid” thing Superman is rocking as his parents take him back to his youth with the present that they got for him.
