There are two variations in the cover artwork amongst the various editions. The front cover of one of the variants has Superman and Santa Claus landing on a rooftop, while it's back cover is a reprint of the cover artwork to Superman (1939) #6 by Joe Shuster & Paul Cassidy with Superman standing with his hands at his hips. The second variant artwork and perhaps the scarcer of the two features Superman, Santa and several children around a Christmas tree, while its back cover features a framed picture of Superman with his arms crossed, and the picture is signed, "Sincerely, Clark Kent". The second variant may be limited to a 1944 reprint of the first edition. The first variant is known to have been used for editions of both the 1940 release, and the 1944 reprint.
