Design of the Week CYBER-SANTA

Each week, we post a limited-edition design, to be sold for exactly 7 days, then replaced with another!
This week...Future Santa (note the four arms!) meets his replacement...Cyber-Santa!
In the late 1950s-early 1960s we thought there was nothing science couldn't improve...including Santa Claus!
Galaxy Magazine's primary artist (both covers and interiors) in this era was Ed Emshwiller, who signed his work "Emsh".
Known for both detail and playfullness, Ed did a series of Christmas covers from 1951 to 1960 featuring a four-armed Santa in the future celebrating the Yuletide with humans and aliens alike!
Enjoy this final one in the series on mugs, t-shirts and other kool kollectibles!

Reading Room TRAGG AND THE SKY GODS "Project: Sabre:Fang" Conclusion

...Yargonian Commander Zorek experiments on Gorth, the Neanderthal who feared and despised Tragg and Lorn.
Adding genetic meterial from a sabre-tooth tiger to Gorth's DNA and exposing him to a "evolvo-ray", the alien transforms the caveman into a man-cat hybrid who attacks Tragg!
The series takes a new turn, as Tragg looks for previously-unknown allies against the Yargonians!
Be here next Friday for more caveman vs alien vs dinosaur action!

Friday Fun TRAGG AND THE SKY GODS "Project: Sabre:Fang" Part 1

I really believe there should be a hyphen in "Sabre:Fang"...
...but it's possible Yargonians have different grammatical rules!
(They are aliens, after all...)
Writer Don Glut and artist Dan Spiegle continue the interstellar soap opera in the never-reprinted Gold Key's Tragg and the Sky Gods #4 (1976)!

Holiday Reading Room CHRISTMAS CARNIVAL "Santa's Red Red Nose"

What happens if Kris Kringle gets sick on Christmas Eve?
This tale from St John's Chistmas Carnival (1952) 100-page one-shot gives you the answer!
It was all a dream!
Thank Heavens!
The thought of a Christmas without Santa is just too much to bear! ;-)
This tale (and the entire Christmas Carnival 100-page 25-cent book) were published twice!
Once in 1952 by Ziff-Davis and again in 1955 by St John Publishing, which bought the Ziff-Davis comics line's material when the publisher liquidated that division after the "Seduction of the Innocent" witch hunt!
Ironic, since Ziff-Davis Comics was one of the least-offensive publishers on the magazine racks!
The writer and artist(s) are unknown.
