Christmas Covers - December 1

When I was a kid, every December we'd get an advent calendar to count down the days until Christmas (and when you're a kid, those days between Thanksgiving and Christmas seem like an eternity!) There would be a bunch of little paper doors numbered 1 to 25, and on the corresponding day of December we'd get to open up one of the little doors to see the picture hiding behind it.

In that spirit, for each day of December until Christmas I'm going to feature a Comic Cover Advent Calendar. Just move your mouse over the image to reveal that day's special Holiday comic cover. Click on the image to get a full-sized version from GCD.

Our first cover is a classic: 1975's tabloid-sized Limited Collectors' Edition #C-34, whose cover by Nick Cardy features Superman, Batman, Captain Marvel, and the Teen Titans joining Santa Claus.

Just 24 more 'get-ups' until Santa!

The big challenge is to see whether you can find gorilla holiday comics for the appropriate days!
