12 Days of Christmas: "The Year Without a Christmas!"

Season's Greetings, Groove-ophiles! In Shazam! #11 (December 1973), the Marvel Family banded together to rescue Santa Clause, himself, and keep the evil Sivana Family from causing the worst thing imaginable to happen. They had to stop "The Year Without a Christmas!" It's Yuletide smiles that go on for miles from Elliot S! Maggin and Kurt Schaffenberger.


  1. Groovy: I will be the first to admit that I don't drop in often enough! The beuatiful work of Schaffenberger and Captain Marvel. Such primo stuff. Thanks for this wonderful post! And in case I don't speak to you until after the Holidays, Merry Christmas, my friend. -- Mykal
