Santa’s Coming Soon! Wait…..
It’s WONDER WOMAN!
Yes, it’s another Wonder Woman Wednesday and today we throw it back to that most special time in vintage DC lore.. CHRISTMAS past! A festive time of year when Wonder Woman plays Santa Claus, bringing hope to needy children like Pete Allen (who doesn’t believe in Santa) while battling a gold thief named Joe “The Gyp” Bamko and his gang as they plan to rob the US Treasury.
The trouble is that Joe is actually Pete’s less-then-reliable dad, and he targets his own family in an attempt to give himself the present of instant wealth. Before long, the children that Wonder Woman tried to uplift become hostages that need rescuing, but rest assured that joy is restored by story’s end.
