TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3367:

Of course today is St. Patrick's Day!  Which is why I titled this blog post, 'Happy St. Patrick's Day Via Comic Books!

I haven't found any comic book covers that actually feature St. Patrick... But I did find a few comic book covers that feature leprechauns... which I suppose is the next best thing?!

Leprechauns have been featured almost since comic book began, but aren't found on that many comic book covers that I've noticed...

St. Patrick's Day isn't as 'popular' on comic book covers as say... Easter, or Christmas, or the 4th of July, so finding comic book covers to share here was just a little harder than you would think!

Almost every blog that even mentions St. Patrick's Day includes the Dell Four Color #426 from September / October of 1952, that featured Porky Pig with a leprechaun, as seen at the top right!

The Dell Four Color #325 with Mickey Mouse and a leprechaun form April of 1951 isn't seen so much, when mentioning St. Patrick's Day. That one is the comic book cover seen at the top left.

The All-American Comics #70 from January / February with Green Lantern and a leprechaun, is included here, because I really enjoyed the cover artist's, (Paul Reinman), work in later years inking Jack Kirby on Fantastic Four, and then in his own pencils for ACG Comics.

Of course there are other comic book covers, including the HoRRoR 'Leprechaun' movie comic book series, but those are so 'different' from the comic book covers presented here today, that I'm going to 'ignore' them for this year...

I'm also 'saving' the other ones I've found for future St. Patrick's Day posts... As there really aren't all that many of them to share!

I'm dedicating this year's 'Happy St. Patrick's Day' blog post to my wife Tina LoSasso, who actually is more 'Irish' than 'Italian' even though her maiden name surname is 'Italian'!

Wishing ALL of YOU a 'Happy St. Patrick's Day', and don't forget to 'Wear the Green'!

~Michael D Hamersky, (who is Scottish / Not Irish from his mother's side, but is also wearing the green today!)
