Now displaying: December, 2020
Dec 23, 2020

It's still December, we've been told, which means we're legally obligated to continue covering Christmas comics. But we broke the rules and did a cartoon too! Take that!

We went with Paul Dini's "Slayride" in Detective Comics #826 as well as the "Christmas with the Joker" episode of Batman: The Animated Series. 

And then we continued Squadron Supreme with issue #8, in which we get an actual honest to goodness superhero fight.

Next Time: The Death of Gwen Stacy (Amazing Spider-Man #121-122) and What If Spider-Man Had Rescued Gwen Stacy (What If? #24)

Anytime the holidays roll around, you know we're gonna get Santa plastered all over a ton of comics. DC's Christmas With the Superheroes 1988 collects 6 different stories from throughout the years and we tried to guess how many would contain the real Santa. Or as real as a comic book Santa can get.
 
And then we got another shocking twist in Squadron Supreme #7.
 
Next Time: A double-dose of Paul Dini Holiday Fun with Batman: Slayride (Detective Comics #826) and Christmas with the Joker (Batman: The Animated Series Season 1, Episode 2)
