The War On Christmas has been going on longer than you think!
Fortunately, The Sandman is on the case (because he needs to help young Jed prove that Santa exists so a reclusive miser will donate a million bucks to charity because...look, it's Kirby, OK?
So why did the Seal Men kidnap Claus? Because the North Pole has the worst customer service EVER!!
OK, this one is really complicated. This story was intended for the never-published Sandman #7 (1977). Then it was going to be printed in the never-published Kamandi #61 (1978)...but then came the DC Implosion. It finally saw limited light of day in Cancelled Comics Cavalcade #2 (1978), and finally was widely published in Kamandi Challenge Special #1 (2017). Phew!!!
