Insight Editions Batman Returns: One Dark Christmas Eve
Written by Ivan Cohen and illustrated by JJ Harrison
Just as three wise men once conspired to honor a baby, three deranged villains in Gotham City have hatched a clever plan of their own. But rather than traveling to Bethlehem and offering gifts, these narcissistic ne’er-do-wells are going to seize control of Gotham City’s government and power supply instead. Once again, the Dark Knight Detective is the city’s only hope for salvation—but defeating the combined forces of the Penguin, Catwoman, and unfettered capitalism is going to take a Christmas miracle! (And possibly a Bat-Plane.)
Celebrate the 30th anniversary of Batman Returns with this tongue-in-cheek retelling of Tim Burton’s delightfully disturbing film. Reimagined into catchy verse and beautiful illustrations, this cautionary tale of identity, ambition, and the importance of work/life balance is guaranteed to get you into the Christmas spirit!
