    But Why Tho?

    Batman/Santa: Silent Knight #3 is turning into a sensational crossover. What started as a team-up between Batman, Robin and Santa has started to include just about every other hero possible. It’s impossible not to grin with each addition. It’s a book that is always finding another level, vastly evolved from what was expected of it. It has the fight scenes, cast and intensity that measures up to some of the biggest events. From the monster hunting to the banter between the heroes, the comic features endless amounts of fun.

    Dark Knight News

    Batman and Santa Claus: Silent Knight #3 has brought us to the brink of the wonder-wall of the mystic and magical, with legends breathing themselves back to life. We’re nearing the end of the line for this short series, but having woven into the Knightmare escapades was a beautiful path to choose. I look forward to the next issue!

    Geek Dad

    Every character interacts a little differently with Santa and his associates, from Damian being ruthlessly skeptical to Clark being completely star-struck—which is really the most in-character Superman thing I’ve seen in a long time. The end result is a series that seems to have a real love for the DCU and the absurd, colorful world they live in. After all, in a world of Gods and monsters, is an immortal gift-giver really that ridiculous? Santa doesn’t play as big a role in this issue, being off on his own adventure for much of it, but with the final showdown with Krampus looming, we’re probably in for a great finish.

    The Super Powered Fancast

    The Story: Parker continues to craft a fun, exciting and often thrilling adventure in this issue. The plot takes some great twists throughout and has some fun and sweet moments with the characters. I loved the interaction between Superman and Santa and it was perfect for the character and who he is.

    The Art: Bandini and Hairsine deliver beautifully detailed and visually thrilling art throughout the issue.

    Silent Knight is understanding exactly what a weekly event series should be in our modern moment – a zany, entertaining menagerie of character moments and self-contained lore. This issue definitely delivers on both regards, as Jeff Parker’s script helps the ensemble grow larger without sacrificing moments of genuine earnestness. While the dual art duties from Michele Bandini and Trevor Hairsine are not as seamless as previous issues, they still deliver some cool and larger-than-life imagery. This far along, I’m more than confident that Silent Knight is going to stick the landing.

    An excellent penultimate issue in DC’s four-part, four-week holiday experiment. Batman – Santa Claus is taking over the DCU and at this point it’s going to take an army of elves, sorry Huldufolk, to save the day.
