With one week to go, we’re now officially in the home stretch for Christmas, and that means that for a lot of us, the True Meaning™ of the holiday might be getting lost in the hustle and bustle. So if you can, take a moment from rushing to the store, wrapping presents, and stringing up the lights to reflect on what this time of year really means, a question that–like most questions I ask–can be ably answered with a visit from Golden Age Batman.
Is Christmas about…
Kidness to your fellow man?
It’s about violence and threats, and that’s the way it oughtta be! Merry Christmas, Golden Age Batman!
1942’s Batman #9, in which Batman springs a convicted murderer named Bob Cratchit and proves his innocence just in time for Christmas, can be found in the pages of The Batman Chronicles v.5. And man, Gordon looked ROUGH back then.
