Christmas 2016: Covering Christmas Memories from 1969-1973

Merry Christmas, Groove-ophiles! Today Ol' Groove is gonna truck on down the Memory Lane of Christmas' past--and I hope you'll enjoy the trip! The following covers are of comics Li'l Groove pulled fresh off the spinner-rack around Christmas time between the ages of 6 and 10 (1969-1973). Some of these comics in and of themselves may not actually be all that outstanding--at least not to you--but to moi? These covers (in no particular order) have some warm and wonderful memories attached. Trips to the store with Dear Ol' Dad. Stopping by the King Kwik after practicing for the Christmas play. Comics to read on the way to visit family. Comics read in the backseat of the car while on one of those Christmas shopping sprees with Dear Ol' Mom. Comics I read at bedtime on Christmas Eve in an effort to get sleepy enough so Santa could slip in and leave all those cool presents. Perhaps some of these comics will bring back some special childhood memories for you, too...

Enjoy your holiday (and/or your weekend), Groove-ophiles! Peace, joy, and love to you all!


  1. Thanks for the trip down memory lane! I had some of those as well. Marry Christmas!

  2. I had forgotten that the auspicious debuts of New Gods #1 and Forever People # 1 occured during Christmas.

  3. Hi Groove, merry Christmas! Just curious about Brave and Bold 100 at Christmas? It was the first D.C. I ever bought and I have this strong recall of doing that in warm weather with my friend and little brother at the corner grocery. Off the spinner rack, natch!!!
