Golden Age Christmas – Robin Teaches the Richest Boy in the World a Lesson for Christmas
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 a Christmas tale from the Robin solo feature from Star Spangled Comics, specifically 1947’s #77, drawn by Jim Mooney (the writer of the tale has been lost to history, it appears).
The basic gist of the story is that there is this little rich kid who has a great head for business but he wants to be a detective, just like Robin. So his guardian (the kid’s parents are dead) decides to donate $50,000 to charity if Robin pretends to go on a case with the boy and hopefully dissuade him from pursuing this line of work. Robin agrees…
Fun story with great art by the late Jim Mooney.
