It’s that time of year when we should look to the season for an all-time favorite comic book cover. At the same time, what were they thinking?
On November 14th 1964, after spending a budget of approximately $200,000, Embassy Pictures Corporation released one of the worst movies of all-time “Santa Claus Conquers The Martians“. The film has achieved cult status in the category “It’s so bad, it’s good”.
To add a further seasonal faux-pas, Western Publishing in March of 1966 released a comic book adaptation under the Dell Comics imprint as part of their “Movie Classics” line of comics. I guess they assumed that any adaptation other than the movie might be an improvement. What were they thinking?
So, in the spirit of Christmas everywhere and in celebrating one of the worst films of all-time, I present a Christmas version of favorite all-time comic book covers!
