Reading Room: Golden Age CAPTAIN MARVEL "Plot Against Christmas"

He's not a captain in the Kree starfleet (or his son)...
This is the original guy, the one who yelled "SHAZAM!", starring in a Christmas tale about a miser who...well read it for yourself...
This Yultide tale from Fawcett's Captain Marvel Adventures #42 (1945) was illustrated by Pete Costanza with touchups by C C Beck.
The writer, who owed a great deal to Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol", is unknown.
Merry Christmas
Happy New Year
