Merry Christmas

Here's a Christmas morning treat. It's the 12 page W.T. Grant giveaway comic from 1942, reprinting the Walt Kelly classic, "The Fir Tree," from SANTA CLAUS FUNNIES #1.

This is a rare item, and I was lucky enough to find it a few months ago in an antique store for a very reasonable price. I've reproduced it as is, without enhancements.

The original story this is adapted from is available at Pappy's Golden Age Comics Blogzine, "The Fir Tree."
