DC Universe Holiday Bash

 DUHB   (DC, 1997-1999)

™ and ©1997 DC Comics

(From The Slings & Arrows Comic Guide)

Yuletide tales of the DC Universe, with all the predictable names (Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, Flash et al.) in unnecessarily sentimental stories. Honorable exceptions to the glopfest are Ty Templeton’s two hilarious short tales featuring the Demon (1997) and Darkseid (1998), and Howard Chaykin and Rick Burchett’s rather lovely “I Left My Heart at the Justice Society Canteen” (1998), which manages to be nostalgic and evocative without going over the top ~HS.
