Christmas with the Super-Heroes Part 1 – Santa Claus is Coming to Town
We here at ONCE UPON A GEEK wish you and your loved ones a wonderful Christmas Eve! To help celebrate, please enjoy these comic book covers featuring Santa Claus. Come back tomorrow for even more Christmas-related covers.
Crazy! Who knew the Kryptonian and the Kringle were so tight?!?!?
“Don’t worry, Batman, I got this end. Seriously, no worries. You go ahead and take it easy. I’m almost twelve now – I don’t mind helping this reclusive old man who sneaks into children’s homes at night.”
Giddy Up, Big Red Cheese!
“We’re sorry, Mr. Kringle. It appears your dry cleaning got mixed up with Mr. Wayne’s. If you can come back after Christmas, I’m sure we can get this sorted out.”
“Umm… Shazam, that suit isn’t really working for you. Sorry to be the one to tell you. I mean, I’m sure Santa appreciates the help and all. I’m just saying a couple hours on the Ab-Rocket might do you some good.”
What exactly ARE they feeding Santa up at the North Pole?!?!?! Miracle-Gro?
Every year it’s the same thing… the rest of the Justice League help Santa make the toys, while Superman gets smashed on Eggnog with the creepy looking elf. Real nice, Kal.
Remember when special edition comics were expensively priced at $1?
Some comics think it’s funny to depict Santa as the victim of some horrible crime. Dude, that’s not cool. You don’t mess with the Claus.
And of course there are the Santa-as-a-villain stories…
And finally, my personal favorite. A Rockwell-inspired JSA cover. Gorgeous!
