Okay, we like to take the opportunity around the holidays to twist any grinchy sentiment in a comic book preview into a reference to the infamous “War on Christmas.” But this time, a comic book character really is waging war on Christmas… literally. So no clickbait here, folks!
DC Comics has released a preview of New Years Evil, their holiday special hitting stores this week. The preview shows pages from a short story by Ram V and Anthony Spay in which Black Adam gets pissed off after meeting a young child who is sad that Santa Claus doesn’t come to Kahndaq and decides to head to the North Pole to beat the crap out of some elves.
Check out the preview below. New Years Evil hits stores tomorrow.

Why hello there, readers! It’s your Uncle Joker letting you know that this year’s DC winter holiday special is not for the good guys. It’s all about the folks on Santa’s naughty list! Folks like me, Sinestro, Toyman, Harley Quinn, and even an appearance from that timely rascal the Calendar Man. Come sledding with your favorite villains in 10 fantastic tales created by comics’ finest talents. They’re not as funny as me, mind you, but it’s important that we be charitable this time of year.
