1974 Marvel HOLIDAY GRAB-BAG Covers! Spot the Differences! John Buscema Art!

It's that time of year again! Time to shoot a red-hot spotlight on Christmas-themed comics of the past! This time around, we take a look at the incredible cover to 1974's HOLIDAY GRAB-BAG tabloid, from mighty Marvel Comics! This well-recalled cover art was created by powerhouse penciller, big John Buscema, but glance below to cast your orbs on an awesome alternate cover to this sensational seasonal superhero-splattered scene! Click below to enlarge!

Above, left: The published 1974 cover art, as known and loved by Marvel maniacs
everywhere, and (right), the original unaltered cover art, complete with "angry faces"
on the Hulk, Captain America, and the Thing! Were the morose mugs considered too
stern to be seen on such a cheerful holiday tome? Big thanks to the
 Planet Kraalo blog for this one!
