I know I've been neglecting my readers lately with mostly wordless posts and reruns from years gone by. I don't want to become the NBC of Blogger, so while I devise a plan to come up with some new and exciting topics, here's a bunch of random Christmas crap that I've collected over the years.
Wow DC Comics gave us SHAZAM! for Christmas one year...and history seems to be repeating itself because this year SHAZAM is coming back for another issue. In January, SHAZAM #1 will arrive, continuing the tale of current Captain Marvel Freddy Freeman, powerless former Cap Billy Batson and his sister Mary. Black Adam, Isis and back-from-the-dead Osiris also figure into the plot! Let's hop it's good and leads to an ongoing series!
If superhero zombies aren't your cup of nog, perhaps a yuletide-themed Frankenstein cover of Monster World magazine is more your speed. What an awesome cover, I so wish I had this framed on my bathroom wall. Gotta love all that hand-drawn blood-dripping typography. Nothing says Scary Christmas like monsters, ghouls, zombies and vampires...and not those soft-core porn TWILIGHT vampires!
Yikes! Speaking of scary...how many poor defenseless animals were slaughtered so Mr. Showmanship can pose for this horrifying holiday portrait? I'm so sure it must have been below zero when he stepped out of this Palm Springs home for this snapshot. Well, if Lee was still alive, I'd be first in line to toss a bucket of red paint on that atrocity. Twas the night before Christmas, and all through Lee's house, not a creature was furry, not even a mouse!
