A Visit From St. Nicholas by Moore and Scarbo

Well, since the Christmas tree has gone up, and St. Nicholas was mentioned here today, it seems a good time for an NEA Christmas strip. Presented below is the first of the long running seasonal strips from Newspaper Enterprise Association as listed by Allan Holtz, Merlin Haas, and couple others.


Meant to run one panel a day as a countdown to Christmas, this adaptation is taken, via newspapers.com, from The Victoria Daily Times of 1936 where they grouped a number of
panels together on their Saturday “Page For The Children.”
