JL #45 "Toyman's WAR on Christmas" Afterwards

So....what did you think?

First off I want to thank my cyber friends Tim Wallace and Ashton Burge with giving me two great "variant" covers this time out. Thanks guys, they look great!!

As for my cover, a tip of the hat to Ramona Fradon and Bob Smith, who provided the source for me on Super Friends #24. I originally played with the idea of having a smiling Toyman on a videoscreen ala the Wonder Twins, but I kinda like how the caroling mannequins turned out.

In case you haven't read the story yet, let's continue this discussion WITH SPOILERS after the jump.

JL #45 "The Toyman's WAR on Christmas!"

The World's Greatest Super-Heroes battle

Cover-A by Tim Wallace

JL #42 "Universal Heroes!" COLORIZED version

last year's "Universal Heroes" JLA adventure, digitally colorized for modern audience enjoyment!

Last year I uploaded the "original" black and white version.
This year, I've "colorized" it. Let me know what you think!

And to help celebrate the occasion, cyber-buddy Ashton Burge provided this super-cool "variant cover" illustration. Thanks, pal! It's awesome!!

Happy Halloween, everybody!
