Little-Known Santa No. 9
What’s that up in the sky? Is it a bird? A plane? No, it appears to be a gaudy dirigible. Or perhaps a left-over barrage balloon flying the colors of Italy? Or maybe a runaway Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade entry?
No, this is Little-Known Santa No. 9, more commonly referred to by his superhero name, Nickman! (Make way, Superman and Batman and Spiderman! — There’s now a jolly old candy-cane-dispensing crimebuster on the beat! And, he’s got not just one sidekick, but hundreds of the little elvish assistants!)
Those reindeer finally get their rest, as Nickman soars through the sky dropping gifts (as well as bad guys)!
You’ll gape in awe as Nickman displays his many super-powers: slimming down to fit through chimneys, gorging on endless milk and cookies, sneezing and twinkling his eyes countless times in one night, pulling presents from a seemingly bottomless sack, and keeping a patent-leather-shine on boots that regularly traverse reindeer paddocks!
