Merry Christmas!

From Action Comics 306, November 1963: "The Great Superman Impersonation."

This classic 1-page Christmas vignette is the first page of a totally unrelated story about Superman foiling a foreign assassination.  
Shortly after the kiss, Clark is abducted and feigns amnesia.  
Later on his knowledge of Lois' lipstick (Peach flavour!) comes in handy.  Enjoy!

Thanks Telle!

And in that vein, here are some more holiday tales!

Wow, that Clark Kent and the orphans tale is a real tear-jerker!

Thanks for posting them.  Today is also another comics-related holiday:
Beethoven's Birthday

Beethoven?  What's the big deal about Beethoven?  He never got his picture on a bubblegum card, did he?  :wink:

Love the stories, especially the orphan tale, which I remember from my childhood but haven't read since.  

This "office party" page is a hoot!  Thank goodness you posted the whole page...if you'd left it at just the first panel, I wouldn't have known what to think!!!  :shock:

Yeah, Perry is coming in kinda low in that panel. These older Superman stories have so many weird or awkward figural compositions!  It's what makes them in part a joy to read and wonder over.  The entire run of Lois Lane is a Phd thesis in gender theory/women's studies waiting to happen.  

Although the concept of career-oriented, investigative Lois and many of her stories are quite feminist, at least for the time.  Quite positive!
