There have been several people linking to their favorite holiday-related comics covers, like this one at the Pulse, which was brought to my attention by the fine folks at the Great Curve.

However, I haven't seen the above cover listed, from the '90s Spectre run-one of many excellent cover images by a stellar group of artists. This is credited to one Lou Harrison, who I'm totally unfamiliar with except for this clever piece. In fact, it sold at this site for $850, which no doubt made someone's Christmas very merry indeed!

The interior story wasn't too bad either-an appropriately-enough touching tale by John Ostrander, with art by British stalwart John Ridgeway, whose stiff, grubby style actually worked quite well this time out.
