Hey, it’s only March — but it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…
I dig happening upon things like this: DC and Insight Editions are releasing The Official Batman Advent Calendar this autumn.
Check out the cheerful details, according to an Amazon listing:
Count down to the holidays in Gotham City with this interactive advent calendar filled with 25 exclusive items inspired by DC’s Batman™ comics.
Celebrate the holidays with the Batman Family and Gotham City rogues with The Official Batman™ Advent Calendar. This unique book features 25 pockets filled with exclusive keepsakes like recipe cards, pins, patches, and many more fun and unique gifts inspired by Gotham City! Ring in the holidays with this must-have gift for fans of the Caped Crusader.
COUNT DOWN TO CHRISTMAS. Uncover a new holiday surprise each day of December! Find the hidden compartments and reveal the exclusive Batman™ keepsakes to add to your collection.
UNIQUE HOLIDAY CENTERPIECE. Display this advent calendar on a tabletop or an entryway for a unique holiday decoration.
A few thoughts:
— I have no idea what those keepsakes will look like, but since the cover art is by Jack Burnley, Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez and Dick Giordano, it certainly appears this will be your classic Bat-style.
— Which, y’know, makes sense because it wouldn’t really fit if grim-and-gritty Batman were adorning this.
— The calendar lists for $29.99 and is scheduled for a Sept. 14 release.
— Hey, I made it all the way through this post without a “Batman smells” joke!

This is very holly and jolly news!

Issue #27, that was my first Golden Age comic. Don’t recall exactly why I’d get an issue with Santa, I’m guessing it was the least expensive purchase available to me. I think I paid $20 in the early 80’s.
