As the solicit text for DC’s Nuclear Winter Special #1 acknowledges, living in 2018 can often feel like a post-apocalyptic existence (or at least a too-precarious pre-apocalyptic one), so why not ring in the holidays with some end-of-the-world cheer? DC Comics’ themed quarterly-ish anthologies are typically delightful, with new and established talent offering short themed tales starring the publisher’s biggest characters. This 80-Page Giant leans toward the familiar faces, with creators like Paul Dini, Steve Orlando, Phil Hester and Mark Russell getting in the spirit.
The iconic nature of DC’s hero and villain roster is a perfect fit for one-and-dones with a simple Christmahanakwanzika moral message, even deeper cuts like Batman 666, the possible-future, semi-demonic Damien Wayne Dark Knight. If you’re looking for something to get you in the mood for December’s incoming festivities, this exclusive preview of Collin Kelley, Jackson Lanzing and Giuseppe Camuncoli’s “Batman 666 in The Warmth” short is the perfect early stocking stuffer. Check out Camuncoli’s interior pages below, and be sure to nab the full DC’s Nuclear Winter Special #1 this Wednesday.
