Super Tuesday: Christmas!

Christmas is fast upon us and this week’s Super Tuesday seeks to put you in a superhero holiday mood. This Christmas wreath is largely without spirit, and appears quickly slapped together from Marvel clip-art but what’s most interesting to me is that image of Conan, bottom center, because it looks to me to have been drawn by Jack Kirby. If so, it was right at the end of Kirby’s final tenure with Marvel, as he transitioned to full-time film and animation work in 1979, the year this ad saw print.

Also of note — why does Luke Cage have blue teeth? And wouldn’t this have been a perfect time to have Luke declare, “Christmas!”

Merry Christmas, Mr. Cage!

Please accept these early season’s greetings from Longbox Graveyard, and join me here tomorrow when I offer the perfect holiday gift choices for the special geek in your life (who may very well be YOU!)

  1. I did not notice the blue teeth at first, but I did see Cage and thought “Wow, this is an ad from the seventies!”


  2. That ad does bring back some memories!
    And clearly, Luke Cage is wearing his cutom mouth guard.


  3. Cage is sampling a new grill, well before is became passe in the 90s hip hop scene. The guy has unbreakable skin, not shatterproof enamel! Great find, Paul.
