Deadlines and Thanksgiving planning conspire to prevent me from writing a regular installment of “Comics, Covered.” So I thought, Why not put together a quick-and-easy gallery of Thanksgiving covers?
Easier said than done. It’s neither quick nor particularly easy: The Thanksgiving theme apparently isn’t popular among publishers and creators. (Remind me not to try this again around Easter time.)
I loathe Dennis Mitchell, and I can’t imagine the turkey thinks a lot of him either. I like, though, that the cover artist senses impending bloodshed, as the “Still 10 Cents” banner is frighteningly reminiscent of police tape. Is Dennis using a garrote?
As if I need a reason to run a cover from the gone-but-not-forgotten Chase.
I hear Mr. Burns is very tough and dry.
Half of the Justice Society, defeated by a large, ugly bird. In fairness, though, it may be Ultra-Humanite.
Moments later, Huey, Dewey and Louie witnessed something that would scar them for life.
Honestly, can you blame the turkey?
Oddly, I have nothing to write about this one …
Next week: Back to normal.
