    Default Have there been any "Batman Christmas" collected editions?

    I was just thinking that DC could probably pick up some decent money by issuing an annual "Batman/Bat-Family at Christmas" trade paperback collection reprinting the various stories that have been published featuring Santa Claus / the holiday season and either Batman or other members of the Bat-family.
    It wouldn't even have to be that thick / that expensive to get some sales.

    I don't think that there was ever collection.

    There have been quite a few DC Universe Holiday Specials through the years, although they were not limited to Batman.

    This trade collects 17 of DC's Christmas-themed stories from 1940 to the present day - including a Batman story illustrated by Frank Miller.

    Batman: Noel is an OGN about Batman at Christmas (basically a Gotham version of 'A Christmas Carol').

    And when I was younger, there were these reprints with various heroes:





    But, still, with Batman still being a major seller for DC, I would think that a thinner tpb (maybe around $12.00-$15.00 U.S. dollars?) reprinting several Christmas/holiday/winter Bat-stories might be a good idea for people to give to Bat-fans and potential Bat-fans. (And if they're older stories, they may be more all-ages friendly.)

    I seem to remember a story about the Joker kidnapping Robin and the setting was them in a car during Christmas...? Don't remember the title, though...

    I think that's Slay Ride from Paul Dini's run on Detective Comics. It didn't do much for me, but people often list it as one of their favourites.

    Batman: Noel is a fantastic Christmas story.
