Great Treasury of Christmas Comic Book Stories

There's a NEW coffee-table book out called Great Treasury of Christmas Comic Book Stories., featuring tales from the 1940s and 50s comic books about Christmas.
It's a cool, kid-friendly throwback to the days when publishers did oversized holiday annuals.
Of course, most tales feature Santa Claus, but other characters pop up including Atomic Mouse, Lil' TomBoy, Ebenezer Scrooge, and even the Easter Bunny! Plus there's a tastefully-done Nativity tale.
Art is by some of the best artists of the era including Walt Kelly (Pogo), John Stanley (Little Lulu/Nancy), and Richard Scarry.
Like I said, it's "kid friendly", but Baby Boomers will probably remember reading one or more of these tales when they were young and should enable their kids or grandkids to experience the same fun they had!
And, if you're gonna give a loved one this terrrific tome, why not combine it with one of our comics-based Christmas collectibles including clothing, mugs, shopping bags, magnets, and many other items with stylish retro graphics derived from comic book covers (some of which appear in the book) for a nifty gift set?
12 different 1960s Kris Kringle designs (for the 12 days of Christmas!) that will bring back nostalgic memories of your Baby Boomer childhood!
Along with St. Nick, our frosty friend is one of the most recognizable symbols of Winter and the Christmas Season! 5 different Frosty designs!
A Christmas Carol brought alive with images from the very FIRST edition EVER, the famous Arthur Rackham-illustrated edition, and the 1951 movie starring Alastair Sim! Bah, Humbug!
Nine different designs featuring famous comic characters celebrating Christmas!
Green Lama!
Lone Ranger!
Edison Bell: Boy Inventor!
Two different SuperSnipe designs!
Santa's Elves on Strike!
Western Rider Rusty!
3-D Comic Christmas!
and MORE!

Happy Holiday Shopping from Atomic Kommie Comics™
