Christmas Comics On Parade
Here's another Christmas gift in the form of a comic book—and unlike most of the holiday-themed comics posted by me (or other bloggers) this is a Christmas comic book you can actually buy right now at a comic book store. That's right, Gemstone, the present-day publisher of Disney comic books, has issued their fifth annual Christmas Parade special, combining reprints of vintage comic stories and never-before-published-in-the-U.S-comics. The front and back covers were drawn by Mickey Mouse master Paul Murry and were originally published in issue number five (of the original series) in 1953 (and without the UPC code you see on the back cover pictured here). These two works of art work hard (but delightfully so) to make us merry.
