A Favorite Christmas Super-Hero Story
A number of great Christmas stories have been done in comic books through the years, and this one is definitely one of my favorites. Paul Chadwick, creator of the Concrete comic, wrote this story, which is a very humanistic story for this genre. That has always been one of Chadwick's strengths. It touches on one of the most important aspects of Christmas, bringing together those who need help with others who can provide such. Superman is the superhero star, one of the few characters whose strength allows him to hold the muscles in check and address the real issue at hand. The title is perfect, though the hand of God evident there is only slightly used, carefully used.
Merry Christmas, everyone.
