A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 359
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Another Christmas moment, this time from Marvel Team-Up #1!
Oddly enough, the first issue of Marvel Team-Up was a Christmas issue. The issue was written by Roy Thomas, with art by the classic art team of Ross Andru and Mike Esposito. The issue featured Spider-Man teaming up with a morose Human Torch (who was just recently dumped by Crystal) on Christmas Eve as they try to capture the Sandman, who they suspect is hiding somewhere in New Jersey (Spider-Man encountered him earlier in the day, and Sandman was shocked to learn that it was Christmas Eve – he then escaped and Spider-Man got the Torch’s help – as Sandman was more of an FF villain by this time – and they both recalled that he seemed to be coming in from Jersey a couple of times that they fought Sandman, so the pair of heroes figured that he must have a hideout in Jersey, so they take one of the Fantasticars out to look for him).
They then find him in Jersey…
That ending, naturally, is “the” moment, this being Christmas and all.
Merry Christmas, everybody!
