SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #112: “On Christmas Day”

This is the one with the great cover.

Santa is robbing peoples’ houses.  No, not the real Santa.  This one is pretty dang evil.

Anyway, Spidey finds out and goes after him.

And then the real Santa shows up at the end and whisks away bad, fake Santa…IMG_5100

This is the first appearance of Santa in Marvel 616 continuity.

There’s also some Black Cat developments, running around rooftops, which seems like set-up for something to come.  And she takes a bath.

Also, Peter Parker has good taste in soda.
