Groove's Christmas Faves: "The TT's Swingin' Christmas Carol!" by Haney and Cardy and "The Silent Night of the Batman" by M. Friedrich, Adams, and Giordano

Meeeeeerrrrrrrry Christmas, Groove-ophiles! Ol' Groove warmly wishes you the very best of the season! Here's hoping your day is merry and bright, filled with friends, family, and laughter. If it isn't, dive into Christmas in Groove City and share in our Christmas cheer--we have plenty and plenty to spare!

Today we're gonna unwrap two of the most lauded and applauded comicbook Christmas tales to ever be found between four color covers, "The TT's Swingin' Christmas Carol" and "The Silent Night of the Batman". Both these festive features can be found on many a "best of" list year in and year out, and deservedly so! But hey, you don't want someone telling you all about your presents before you unwrap 'em, do ya? Then get to tearin' that paper, baby!

From Teen Titans Vol. 1, #13 (November 1967), here come Bob Haney and Nick Cardy with "The TT's Swingin' Christmas Carol!" (The Charles Dickens you say!)

And here's the real Batman--the one with the really boss baritone singing voice--care-free and caroling on "The Silent Night of the Batman" by Mike Friedrich, Neal Adams, and Dick Giordano from Batman Vol. 1, #219 (December 1969)!

Peace on earth and good will to all! Merry Christmas from Groove City, baby!!


  1. Merry Christmas to you and yours Groove!

    That Cardy artwork is breathtakingly good.
