As we approach the end of 2015, I thought it would be a nice time to head back into the archives and find a good story about New Year's Eve and all the good tidings that go with it. There aren't as many as there are for Christmas or Halloween But there's a funny thing about going to look for holiday stories. Sometimes, you find a story about Auld Acquaintances, resolutions, countdowns and all that stuff.
And sometimes, you find a story that takes an inexplicable second act twist into mud-wrestling and then reveals that Cheryl Blossom exists in defiance of God Himself. Which, if we're being honest, wasn't actually all that surprising.
Last week, one of the questions that came in for my Ask Chris column came from someone who was curious about how Batman celebrated New Year's Eve, and really, that's a pretty interesting question. I mean, we have plenty of comics, cartoons and even one goofy-ass movie about how he spends Christmas, but stories that address whether or not he watches the ball drop and toasts a cup of kindness are significantly harder to come by. Fortunately, we have Batman #247, a classic from the Bronze Age that addresses exactly this question.
As it turns out, Batman spends his New Year's Eve punching out criminals. What the hell did you think he was going to do?
Welcome to the latest episode of ComicsAlliance Presents “Kate or Die,” a series of exclusive comic strips created by one of our favorite cartoonists, Kate Leth! In this episode, Kate makes some New Year's Resolutions that may or may not be honored.
2013 was kind of a rough year for Peter Parker. In the comics, he spent most of it quite dead, while Otto Octavius swung around in his body as the Superior Spider-Man. On Broadway, producers announced that his musical, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Darkis coming to a close in January.
Will 2014 shine brighter for the old Web-head? Well, it's starting with a bang, at least. As a promotional stunt for The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which opens May 2, Spider-Man will be front-and-center during the Times Square New Year's celebration tonight, as viewers will get to see an exclusive clip from the movie. Spidey will even be named "The Official Hero of Times Square 2014."
Check out this clip from Good Morning America in which a suspiciously quiet Spidey and director Marc Webb talk about tonight's festivities!
I don't know how crazy you guys got ringing in 2012, but I took it pretty easy on the adult beverages myself (I didn't even have any comic book cocktails). That's why when I awoke on Sunday to confirm Anderson Cooper was kidnapped by the Green Goblin on CNN's New Year's Eve special, I wondered if perhaps my $6 bottle of champagne from Trader Joes had been more potent than I'd realized...
It's the end of the year, and that means that it's once again time for New Year's Eve: The Drinkingest Holiday of All! It's not just popping the champagne at midnight that makes it the tipsiest night of the year, it's the fact that parties built entirely around the twin themes of celebrating and getting ready for new things make the perfect opportunity to try out a few brand new, largely untested drink recipes on the guinea pigs we call our friends...
Burning effigies isn't always associated with good cheer, but on New Year's Eve in Ecuador, setting dummies known as "años viejos" ablaze is all just part of a celebration capping Earth's latest successful spin around the sun. Ricar...
