I’ve always had a soft spot for those DC 80 Pg. Giants and 100 Pg. Super-Spectaculars, and the idea of a somewhat superhero-style Santa Claus 80 Pg. Giant comic sounded like a fun idea that needed to exist. And it’s a given that Go-Go Checks automatically make any comic cover better!
Of course, there were a lot of possible villains to pick from, but ultimately I gravitated towards these. For those who don’t know, Pitch comes from the 1959 Mexican movie Santa Claus. Voldar and Torg appear in the 1964 “classic” Santa Claus Conquers the Martians. The Heat Miser and the Snow Miser show up in the TV special, The Year Without a Santa Claus. And finally, Oogie Boogie comes from the Disney classic The Nightmare Before Christmas. Just realized: they’re all in chronological order. I hadn’t really planned it that way (I was thinking more about evenly distributing the reds and greens), but so be it!
That’s about all I can think of to say for this image, except: I’d like to wish all my site visitors a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
