As noted in our last post, darned near EVERYONE gets to “Save Christmas” at least once! Ten years ago this month we were treated to how SUPERMAN did so, in the pages of THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN # 623 (Cover Date: February, 2004).

This issue was released at the tail end of what was a great editorial run for the Superman comic books, starting with the 1986 reboot by John Byrne, through the incredible weekly continuity period presided over by editor Mike Carlin, and later carried on by Eddie Berganza.
Superman (Clark Kent) is married to Lois Lane in this continuity and, as this series of illustrations indicates, the two of them “take a needed break from their busy lives to just stop and talk”.
One of the topics Clark covers is how Superman saved Christmas – nicely done as PROSE with accompanying illustrations. Reproduced here is that eight-panel portion of the comic. Story is by Joe Casey, and art by Derec Aucoin. Enjoy!
