Whew, three posts in one day! And here I was only going to post festive stories until holiday times were through, but I guess I'll always make exceptions for Vic.

I'm running a little short on material as we get closer to X-mas, and even shorter on time tonight, so there's only one story here. I almost included a Superman/Santa Claus team-up reprinted in Christmas with the Super-Heroes #1 (originally from DC Comics Presents #67) since I haven't posted anything from that yet, but it's full-length and it's getting late tonight.

So instead,
We've got one last story from the Infinite Holiday Special (2006), "Father Christmas", written by Ian Boothby and with art by Giuseppe Camuncoli and Lorenzo Ruggiero. Three and a third pages from ten.

Bart's hanging around his place in LA while Jay and Joan try to talk him into pending X-mas with them in Keystone.

The story continues with some introspection and angst that are completely uncharacteristic of Bart, so we'll skip them. Suffice to say, he decides to go for a walk and runs into some weather weirdness. He tracks it down to a guy with a replica of Weather Wizard's wand, but stops short of punching the guy's lights out when he sees his son watching.

He offers to put them up in a hotel he rescued from a fire a while back, but that being no way to spend X-mas, he takes them somewhere else first.

A first edition? What is this, a Greg Rucka story? (it is totally worth noting this story is from the same issue as "Lights", which creates a weird gift-giving parallel between them)

Tomorrow: The secret origin of Santa Claus! Plus, a parade of covers to make tracking the stories you've seen here over holiday times easier to track down for yourself!

On the other hand, when's the last time he did anything?

I love how they both look at Joan for permission first.

So...both their identities are known, or what? Or is this a special case for the guy and his kid?

Can we just acknowledge that Infinite Holiday is the bestest holiday issue ever?

Or are there any other contenders out there?

Bah! Talk about missing the point of a character.

Clemens. Samuel Clemens was happy to sign it. Especially if you're implying you met him while he was working the Mighty Miss in his twenties. Honestly, it's a weird reference, since the book that was signed was written about a period long after he worked/lived there. Then again, Clemens probably would've had an appreciation for the idea of time travel (and getting a glimpse at his own future endeavors), and Jay might very well have inspired A Connecticut Yankee in King Arther's Court.
