Rob Kelly Surprisingly, I don't have many--if any--memories of getting comics for Christmas. As you can see from these photos, I frequently had Mego Christmases, and, from 1978 on, Star Wars Christmases, but I really don't ever remember getting comics from Santa.
Maybe that's because, at the time, comics were cheap, so if we ever saw one I wanted, I usually got it right there and then, not needing it to be put on my Christmas list. A thirty-five cent issue of Brave and the Bold is one thing, a Death Star Playset is another.
I had great Christmases growing up, as you can see. I hope all of you had the same, and for those of you who have kids, are giving them Christmases they'll remember as fondy as I remember mine.
Happy holidays everybody!
