Bizarro Back Issues: Batman’s Deadly New Year! (1972)
By Chris Sims
Last week, one of the questions that came in for my Ask Chris column came from someone who was curious about how Batman celebrated New Year’s Eve, and really, that’s a pretty interesting question. I mean, we have plenty of comics, cartoons and even one goofy-ass movie about how he spends Christmas, but stories that address whether or not he watches the ball drop and toasts a cup of kindness are significantly harder to come by. Fortunately, we have Batman #247, a classic from the Bronze Age that addresses exactly this question. As it turns out, Batman spends his New Year’s Eve punching out criminals. What the hell did you think he was going to do?
