Santa Claus Funnies; 1942-1949 (Dell)

In remembrance of the holiday season, here is the cover gallery from Dell Comics classic eight year run of Santa Claus Funnies, by the late, great Walt Kelly (Pogo). Santa Claus Funnies continued annually for many years, but Kelly went on to even greater acclaim with his popular syndicated strip about a swamp dwelling opossum. Clockwise, from left to right: [top row] Santa Claus Funnies #1 (1942), Santa Claus Funnies #2 (1943), Four Color #61 (1944), Four Color #91 (1945), [bottom row] Four Color #128 (1946), Four Color #175 (1947), Four Color #205 (1948) & #254 (1949).
