Great Comics That Never Happened Holiday Special #1: Action Christmas!
In our recurring feature, ComicsAlliance writer Chris Sims and a rotating cast of talented artists imagine a finer world to bring you a look at the Best Comics Ever that Did Not, Will Not, and occasionally Can Not Happen! For December, we’re switching it up a little to bring you a GCTNH Holiday Special every week ’til Christmas! First up, artist Dean Trippe (Butterfly and Project Rooftop) joins us for a trip back to the Silver Age of Christmas Comics!
Check out the full cover and the story we wish we were reading this year after the jump!
Action Christmas #1 (December 1958)
Story By Chris Sims

Everyone knows that before he came to Earth and took the identity of Clark Kent, Superman was born on Krypton as Kal-El, and when that planet was destroyed, he became its last survivor! Until today! When a rocket crashes on the doorstep of Superman’s Fortress of Solitude at the North Pole, the Man of Steel investigates and finds his long-lost cousin, NO-EL! Sworn to bring gifts to everyone on Earth, No-El seems like an ally — but when he starts giving presents to the likes of Brainaic and Luthor, will he cause even more trouble than Kryptonite? Find out in “The Super-Santa From Krypton!”
