    I've been deliberately trying to pretty much avoid 2000AD covers this year simply because last years thread featured the majority of those Christmas covers. However, one of those covers (by Kevin O'Neill) which I used only had the frontcover...today, in all it's glory, is the full wrap-around cover from the Christmas 1984 edition of 2000AD.

    And speaking of 2000AD, there will be plenty more great covers to look forward to in the new year in (yet another!) new thread in which I will be looking solely at space/sci-fi comics published over the years. And of course 2000AD will feature prominently...

    OK, so strictly speaking it's not a Christmas cover but plenty of snow and a menacing snowman makes this a pretty good fit...

    Another wrap-around cover today, this time it's one of those giant-sized (and I mean Giant - these were massive, the pages measuring around 18" high by 12" wide) Treasury editions from Marvel...the 3rd Superhero Holiday Grab-Bag from 1976...

    So is that Misty comic a girls' fun comic that's gone a bit sour or an out-and-out horror comic? That snowman is pretty damn scary.
    Pity. I have no understanding of the word. It is not registered in my vocabulary bank. EXTERMINATE!

    It was actually a horror comic aimed at girls, Steve. All the strips were by many of the same artists and writers who worked on 2000AD, Battle, Eagle and other other comics of the period. Pat Mills ("the godfather of British comics" and writer of Judge Dredd, Doctor Who, and Charley's War among others) designed Misty "to be a female 2000 AD with the emphasis on magic and horror, rather than science fiction; it was very successful and is fondly remembered today"

    Some of the material published in this comic will finally see the light of day again next year, courtesy of 2000AD publisher Rebellion.

    Here's a 2000AD Dredd Christmas cover which I don't believe I've featured in the past...from the Christmas 2001/New Year 2002 issue of the Megazine...

    Two covers today, both from pre-war British 'funnies'. Both covers today are by Freddie Compton...Sunbeam from 1932, and Playbox from 1938. The attention to detail in these covers, and the colour, is amazing. They really used to know how to make a Christmas cover back in those days, didn't they? More like these to come soon...
