You’ve wandered into the topsy-turvy world of Tulgey Wood, the blog of writer and historian Jim Fanning. Tulgey Wood celebrates artistry and creativity (and sometimes just plain madness): movies, animation, TV, books, comics—and of course Disney, lots and lots of true-blue, through-and-through Disney, including D23 and Disney twenty-three Magazine, and Sketches Magazine and the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Tulgey Wood is so fun, fascinating and full of frolicsome photos and facts, it’s scary. So wander through the wonder of it all, and enjoy.

Superboy Saves (Or At Least Assists) Santa

Comic books and comic book covers are always a favorite here at Tulgey Wood and so is Christmas, so what could be more fun and festive than Christmas-themed comic book covers? This early Superboy cover from Adventure Comics Issue 113, February 1947 was drawn by Stan Kaye and George Roussos. Who needs a sleigh when you have Superboy to offer an assist? This festively outfitted comic—it actually hit the streets in time for Christmas 1946—came out just two years after the Superboy character was introduced in late 1944. As you can see here, Superboy was usually portrayed as a young kid as opposed to the teenager with which most readers/viewers are familiar (as in the Smallville TV series, for example). More Yuletide treats ahead in Tulgey Wood for Christmas 2013!
