I don't think I had seen the movie for decades and I had all but forgotten about the Christmas theme but once I started it, it was undeniable. Everyone talks about Die Hard and Batman Returns as their go-to holiday escapism but Gremlins should be at the top of that list.
Tower of Flame" which involves Conan protecting a strange woman who then goes through a bizarre transformation to reveal her true self. I'd like to think they picked this issue for that theme...but who knows?
Death, Come Rescue Me" featured in the issue but according to the DC Wiki the main character ends up "as a slave on a Chinese junk [sic] where no one ever dies". A Chinese junk what? Well, Gremlins starts with a scene in a Chinese "junk" store (kind of) so maybe that's why this one got picked for the set.
Don't ask me why this one made the cut. "The Magnetic Marauder!" is essentially a team-up between the Squadron and Wonder Woman against Percival Plazchek a.k.a. Nuclear, the Magnetic Marauder. So maybe they did just grab an arbitrary stack of comics for the scene.
But regardless of any intentional or accidental themes, it's always great to see old school comics show up in old school movies. Keep your eyes open, you never know what you're gonna see next.
