We're just one week and one day away from Christmas, but unlike a certain jolly old soul, we don't discriminate if you're naughty or nice—either way you're going to get plenty of cool stuff to read, watch, and discuss in our Community. And as a bonus, you don't have to wait til next week! Take a look below to see what we've slipped in your stocking this week...

 

 

NEW COMICS

HBO's Watchmen just finished its inaugural season, but in case you've still got a hankering for the world of Ozymandias, Doctor Manhattan and Silk Spectre, all of DC's Before Watchmen titles just dropped. Plus, the unholy multidimensional mashup of Batman & the Joker returns in The Batman Who Laughs #1. Finally, if all the gloom and doom from those two titles have got you down, try a little pep of delightful mythical weirdness with Sasquatch Detective #1. Check out the full list below!

Harley's got her new crew, and now all she needs is a nemesis. Unfortunately all she can seem to find is the Brat Wonder, Robin. Check out "Finding Mr. Right" when it drops on DC Universe this Friday, December 20!

POLL POSITION

The end of the year means holiday parties a-plenty, and you just know that the Justice League throws one heck of amyuletide shindig. But which hero is the real party animal of the league? Our poll asked just that, and it seems like most people think that's it's Harley Quinn who's the true life of the party. Do you agree? Disagree? Just want to get to the open bar? Take the poll now and let your voice be heard!

 

 

DC UNIVERSE SHOP SALE

If you're looking for a little fun in the Community, drop by @RedTornado's thread where you can guess the DC character by their silhouette. Not everyone has pointy little bat-ears, so it may be harder than you think! If you're feeling crafty, take a look at how @JayJayden has tricked out his guitar with old comics pages--to paraphrase noted arts 'n craft maven the Penguin, a little Mod Podge and a lot of patience makes all the difference! Finally, if you want a fun creative exercise, @ZatannaAndHerSpells is asking for the WORST team roster possible. We'd have to give it up for @BatJamags and his Retcon Rangers, made up of Hawkman, also Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Donna Troy, and Brainac 5. It's a team to make your head spin!
