    But Why Tho?

    Batman/Santa Claus: Silent Knight #2 is one of the best Christmas comics ever. This series has the depth to be able to be read at any time of the year, no matter the season. If it was just Santa and Krampus, it could be locked into a vault and only accessible from December 1st. But it is also a superhero vs. vampires comic featuring several of DC’s biggest names against the undead horde. The links to folklore have strengthened further with the adventure into the past, whilst the present is closer to monster hunting than mythology. There is not a tree, bauble, or elf in sight. The ancient spirit of Christmas forms a spine and soul to the book, but it doesn’t seek to undermine the hardcore elements of the action or the plot.

    I never would have thought “Batman meets Santa” could create a story as entertaining as this one, but that’s the current golden age of DC.

    DC’s holiday crossover continues in a stranger—and honestly, even stronger—fashion. In a short span of time, some major stakes are established in the fight against Krampus, and there are multiple character cameos that are excellently-executed. Jeff Parker’s script and Michele Bandini’s art know just the right moments to get ridiculous or over-indulgent, while still giving the book an earnest holiday cheer. Don’t miss out on this fun, glorious series. Trust me.

    Writer Jeff Parker and artist Michele Bandini craft a story that seamlessly blends the Caped Crusader and Santa Claus better than I could have ever imagined — if I even were to imagine it! Picking up where the first issue left off, Batman and Santa Claus face off against the monstrous Krampus and his horde of Yuletide nightmares.The action is exhilarating, the mythology is surprisingly engaging, and the Christmas spirit is thick enough to cut with a candy cane. Bandini’s art shines in these action sequences, knowing just when to push the envelop and when to reign it back in.

    The Story: Parker continues to craft an entertaining and engaging story with some great moments for the characters as well as some awesome surprises. The story is filled with great action and I love the lore in the story and how it is expanding both that lore and the characters connected to it. There is also a fun moment in the end of the issue that makes me excited to see what happens next.

    The Art: Bandini and Hairsine deliver beautifully detailed and intense art throughout the issue. The action is thrilling throughout and I love the cinematic way new characters get introduced.

    Batman/Santa Claus: Silent Knight #2 is solid entertainment. Perfect for the holiday season, it’s popcorn fun with a nice ride throughout. The ending of the series feels slightly predictable but I don’t really care. This is escapist entertainment at its best. A fun comic to site back and just enjoy.
