These small comic books were big drawing cards for stores in helping to bring in families who were shopping for shoes and clothing for their kids. The number one comic published every December was "Santa Claus" because stores knew it would bring in more kids looking to get a free Santa Comic. Of the 488 March of Comics published, 52 were about Santa and the Christmas holiday.
If you collect March of Comics then these would be a nice addition to your collection. A very nice gift to give yourself or someone else that will bring back memories of shopping with mom and dad for shoes and clothing and then receiving these cool pint-sized comic books.
