In the 1970s, Marvel Comics came up with a great way to celebrate the Holidays. Marvel put out several "Giant Superhero Holday Grab-Bag" Treasury Editions around Christmas time in the mid-70s. These books were really just oversized reprints of more-or-less holiday-themed stories that had been previously published in other Marvel books. But they were sure neat. The 1976 edition, pictured above, reprints stories from Marvel Team-Up #6; The Avengers #58; Tales to Astonish #93; and Daredevil #86. [xyz-ihs snippet="imageandtextbanner"] The issue from 1975 (below) reprints stories from Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. #10; The Amazing Spider-Man #24; Hero for Hire #7; The Incredible Hulk vol. 2 #147; and Doctor Strange #180.
