Golden Age Christmas – Freddy Freeman Celebrates Christmas…With the Mob!?!

Welcome to the latest edition of Golden Age Christmas, where we will feature a different Golden Age Christmas comic book story every day from now until Christmas Eve!

Today we look at the time that the mob teamed up with Freddy Freeman (and Captain Marvel Jr.) to help some orphans.

1946′s Captain Marvel Jr. #46 featured a story by writer Bill Woolfolk and artist Bud Thompson where Freddy Freeman is depressed on Christmas Eve…

Luckily, some meaning enters his life when he gets a visit from the orphanage director…

Here’s a fascinating wrinkle to the tale, where the mob are essentially the good guys of the story…

Hard John, of course, knocks Louie out and steals his outfit. Is he up to no good? Or will the Christmas spirit be too much for him to resist? Come on, it’s a Golden Age Christmas story, you know the answer!!

What an oddly sweet tale this one was.

This was the story I immediately thought of when you started this series.

Lovely story. Wish there were more like this today.
