Silver Age Christmas - "Christmas, 1944 Bastogne"

All December 2014, we will be celebrating a Silver Age Christmas, with great Silver Age comics about Christmas. For the sake of this endeavor, "Silver Age" will be defined as 1956-1970 (the annoying part about that is that 1951-1955 sort of fall into no man's land, as it is not yet Silver Age but also seems to be a bit late for Golden Age).

We continue with the tale of an unlikely Santa Claus from 1958's Battlefield Action #20 (Charlton didn't do credits, but odds are it was written by Joe Gill and drawn by Rocco Mastroserio and Dick Giordano)...

The set-up is a paratrooper at the deadly battle of Bastogne can't help but look out for the affected youth of the area at Christmastime...

PREVIEW: Superman #7
