Carrie Fisher’s passing prompted Timothy Anderson to capture the original trilogy as old-school paperbacks:

That’s all I have to say. Book reviews and comments on Christmas Day will come later in the week. For today, just enjoy Christmas — or if you’re not someone who celebrates it, I hope you enjoy something good just the same.
To mark the day, here’s one of my favorite Christmas covers, by the great Nicholas Cardy.
Here’s one by John Byrne.
Saturday we had the writers’ group Christmas party, and I’m not completely back up to snuff. So here are some covers to make a post. First a weirdly psychedelic one from Kelly Freas. As you can tell from the yellow block, only the seventh novel out from DAW books.
And now a couple of comics covers. First a creepy one by Neal Adams
Which is to say my brain is still tired from the week’s work, but it’s just normal tired rather than the utter exhaustion I was feeling midweek. So no book reviews today unless I get lively and post later.
Normally I have my blog posts written well in advance but the demands of proofing and indexing made that impossible this month. I’d figured on catching up Saturday, but I caught up on everything else instead:
•Making chocolate chip scones for a party.
•Sending out a couple more invites to our writers’ group Christmas party (I want to make sure everyone at least knows so nobody thinks they’ve been slighted). And posting directions for everyone.
•Buying pet food.
•Shopping for some Christmas gifts for TYG.
•Wrapping gifts and putting them under the tree.
•Watching some Christmassy stuff (of course).
•Playing with dogs.
Plus my brain was still pretty wiped from the week’s work. But like the title says, I feel mo
As compensation, here’s a cover by Patrick Woodruffe to see. He did a lot of work on Michael Moorcock covers during the 1970s—other stuff as well, but Moorcock’s where I know him best from.
Working on the index, most of the time, I felt like this. Spider-Man, not the giant hands about to crush him (art by John Buscema). They’re the index.

So I thought I’d just post some Batman covers I’d already put on FB for a friend of mine.
A striking one by Irv Novick.
J. Winslow Mortimer isn’t my favorite Bat-artist, but here are a couple of interesting cover hooks. Good stories, too.
And now one from Jim Aparo, one of the definitive Bat-artists.
