Marvel didn’t do a lot of Christmas issues, but you can count on Steve Gerber to start an issue with Ghost Rider meeting three wisemen on camels in the desert, on Christmas Eve.
Ghost Rider follows them, and then enlists Ben Grimm’s aid by masquerading as an angel.
Uh. He’s a guy with a flaming skull head on a motorcycle. Does that sound like Gideon’s trumpet to anyone?
They meet “the creator” who claims to be the father of a child born in a manger. Turns out, he’s just the Miracle Man (what an appropriate villain!), and Thing punches him out.
Creators: Steve Gerber and Sal Buscema
Grade: B-. Yes, it’s totally stupid. But it’s also so kitschy and fun.
