Flash Christmas Covers

When I thought of doing this feature, I figured there would be more of these. But there are surprisingly few. Most of them, as it turns out, are from Comic Cavalcade back in the 1940s. None appeared during Barry Allen’s run, and only two during Wally West’s. (One of them I only included because the cover quoted “Jingle Bells.”) Impulse, however, managed three.

Interesting notes:

  • 5 feature Santa Claus.
  • 5 feature Christmas Trees.
  • 4 name the holiday.

I even went hunting for team books — Justice League, Teen Titans, Justice Society, etc. Oddly enough, I couldn’t find many that were both Christmas-themed and featured a Flash.

Thanks to the Grand Comics Database for the covers.

    I think it should be noted that 2 of them feature The Flash either halfway in or looking in a window 😉

    Merry Christamas, Kelson!! And a happy and prosporous New Year!

    Wow. Sad that there were so few ‘modern’ Christmas covers.
    Impulse had the best. The only -child character- I truly loved.
    #25…Jay must be slacking. I’d have expected to see a whole pile of toys made by him before the others got halfway thru their first.

    What a great choice for Luke! I wonder if they’ll also have Iron Fist. That….eh, but the family doesn’t do Netflix here. Oh well.

    Merry Christmas to those who celebrate.

      Iron Fist is part of the plan, though he hasn’t been cast yet. Miniseries for Daredevil, AKA Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, then all of them teaming up in a Defenders minseries. I’m sure they’ll work their way to other platforms and DVD over time.
