#12 on the Very Batman Christmas countdown is “Have Yourself a Deadly Christmas” by Batman #309 by Len Wein, John Calnan and Frank McLaughlin.
The concept is a simple one. A young woman is mugged. The almost mindless being known as Blockbuster sees her get mugged. He retrieves her purse. So, she then goes home to kill herself on Christmas Eve.
Blockbuster tracks her down and tries to give her her purse back. When she sees her in trouble, he tries to get her to help but because he is almost mindless, he doesn’t know HOW (he ends up fighting Batman to “protect” her in his mind).
He ends up accidentally leaving her on an ice floe. Blockbuster, though, decides to sacrifice himself to save her…
It’s a sweet message with brilliant artwork from John Calnan.
