It’s the countdown to Christmas!  The time for cold weather (or “slightly chillier weather,” depending on where you live), Christmas lights, carols, peace on Earth, and goodwill toward men is here, and I couldn’t be more excited.

And really, what better way is there to welcome the Advent season than with Batman?

…okay, there are probably better ways, but is there a more thematically appropriate way for us Batman fans?  Probably not.

Insight Editions have recently released The Official Batman Advent Calendar, which contains 25 days of goodies and treats that are perfect for any Batman fan.  In lieu of a typical review, I can attest that this “book” is wonderfully crafted, with the front, back, and interior adorned with absolutely stunning Gold, Silver, and Bronze Age Batman images.  That by itself makes it a great piece for collectors, but given that it’s an Advent calendar, the really treats are on the inside.  Treats that are traditionally opened, one a day, until Christmas day.

Which is exactly what we’re going to do.  Starting on December 1, pay attention to the Batman News Instagram feed, as we will post each day’s surprise so we can all count down to Christmas together.  So grab yourself some cocoa, regale your friends and family with carols about how much Batman smells and Robin laying eggs, and enjoy the days of Advent with us.
