Remember I mentioned, way back when, that “The Fight Before Christmas” was a popular comic book festive title? Well, click through the jump for today’s Seasonal Superhero Comic Book Cover to discover one of its more enjoyable uses…Mark Waid, love him or hate him, knows what makes a good Christmas comic. This is a man, remember, who once had the Flash help Joey and Maria, a pregnant couple, find a place to stay on Christmas Eve with the help of a bright star in the sky – and a man who, as you can see from the above cover to JLA #60 by Cliff Rathburn and Paul Neary, has no problem with Santa Claus joining the Justice League. To make matters even more awesome? The story inside this comic – which you really, really should track down, by the way – has the wonderful title of “Merry Christmas, Justice League – Now Die!”
Why don’t they make comics like this anymore?
