In Batman / Santa Claus: Silent Knight #1 from DC Comics, written by Jeff Parker with art by Michele Bandini, the weekly event series kicks off. Batman has a mystery to solve in Gotham City, which reunites him with his old mentor… Santa Claus? Not a hoax! Maybe an imaginary story!
In the preview pages, you don’t get to see Old Saint Nick. But you do get to see a violent attack on some Christmas carolers, announcing this won’t be a kid’s story. And then Zatanna pops up out of a snowman, so maybe it is a kid’s story? Whatever it is, this is clearly unlike any other comic you’ve ever read.

Batman / Santa Claus: Silent Knight #1 Official Synopsis:
THE DARK KNIGHT PARTNERS WITH A NOT-SO-JOLLY ST. NICK AS SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN! The four-part crossover event of a generation begins when a not-so-jolly St. Nick hits Gotham City to investigate a brutal crime in the days leading up to Christmas… What manner of man or beast could have committed such atrocities?!
With the help of his former student, Batman, Santa will team up with the heroes of the DC Universe to right this wrong—or the world wakes up to coal in their stockings! A brutal, two-fisted holiday tale of hope, wonder, and monster hunting is the perfect treat to ring in the holidays—it’s Claus in canon!
