Welcome to the eighth day of holiday cover fun!!
Our cover for today is not Christmasy per se, but it’s wintery… that’s close enough. It’s from Comic Cavalcade #20, drawn by Martin Naydel, and shows Green Lantern, the Flash, and Wonder Woman teaming up to build a snowman:
He’s got a corncob pipe and everything! Now here’s what’s interesting: The song, “Frosty the Snowman”, was first released in 1950. This cover includes two eyes made out of coal, an old silk hat, and the corncob pipe… the only thing missing is a button nose. However, this issue came out in 1947, three years before “Frosty the Snowman” was released!! DC Comics might have a lawsuit here… Martin Naydel could be due a chunk of the “Frosty the Snowman” empire.
