Oops, a bit of a delay from celebrating Fred Van Lente Day festivities!
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.
Here’s Day 3, #22 on the countdown
Here’s Day 3, #21 on the countdown
Here’s Day 3, #20 on the countdown
And now for Day 6, #19 on the countdown is…
Dave Gibbons and Steve Rude’s “World’s Finest” Book Two.
The issue, which was part of Gibbons and Rude’s excellent prestige format series, was set at Christmastime. However, the Christmas holiday did not play a major role in the story, which is why an otherwise excellent comic is so relatively low on the list.
The part that WAS Christmas-related, though, was excellent, as there is this wonderful scene where Superman gives Batman a Christmas present…
Gibbons and Rude really nail each character’s personality beautifully.
