It’s Christmas Eve, so what finer way to start the celebrations that by featuring this fine cover starring everyone’s favourite red-nosed reindeer, Rudolph?

Published in late 1972, this was one of the first of DC’s oversized ‘treasury’ issues. And it must’ve proven reasonably popular, as Rudy went on to star in a further five! Much earlier, he’d had his own series that ran annually from 1950 to the mid-60s.

I’m not sure who the cover artist is, but it’s nice stuff. Shelly Mayer did the later ones.
