Even before Rise of the Guardians, Kris Kringle protected the innocent...

Story and art for this tale from Major Magazines' Web of Horror #3 (1970) was Frank Brunner, who would go on to major successes in sf/fantasy including acclaimed runs on the comics Dr Strange and Man-Thing, and the 1990s X-Men animated series.
BTW, the spider-like host of the book was named (what else?) "Webster"!
We'll be back in 2013 with more stuff your grandparents didn't want your parents to read...
Happy New Year!
