The Joker’s Surprise Appearance At The 1989 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Is A True Act Of Supervillainy [Video]

The Joker appears at the 1989 Thanksgiving Day Parade

It's Thanksgiving today here in America, which means that the streets of New York City have been overtaken by the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade! As usual, it was a pretty big deal for those of us who enjoy ushering in the holiday season with Pikachu, Spider-Man and, of course, Santa Claus himself. In 1989, however, there was another guest who appeared to kick off Christmas: Batman's arch-nemesis, The Joker.

It is... not the best public appearance a supervillain has ever made. It is, in fact, so terrible that it might actually be a supervillain plot. Check it out below!

50 Comic Book Covers Celebrating Thanksgiving [Art]

thanksgivingcomiccoversmain

Last year we collected 35 comic book covers celebrating Thanksgiving and, in the spirit of being thankful that ComicsAlliance is around for yet another feast holiday, we've returned for a second helping that tacks on 15 more pieces of comic book covers and other artwork (we had to cheat a little, there's just not very many covers!) that mark the fourth Thursday of November here in the United States. You can see them all, presented in no particular order, after the jump. And yes, we did find even more examples of Donald Duck's contempt for his fellow bird the turkey. He's an... odd duck. *chortle!

The Comics Alliance Guide to Black Friday & Cyber Monday Sales [AVARICE]

CA_BlaackestFriday

For many Americans, the Thanksgiving holiday is a time of blessing and gratitude that facilitates the coming together of friends and family both close and disparate to break bread, reflect upon their lives and relationships with one another, and to contemplate the depths of their unspoken disdain.

For other Americans, Thanksgiving is all about Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The busiest shopping days of the year come with bargains accurately advertised as “insane,” and they’re to be found in virtually every dimension of the retail universe. It’s the ideal time of year to fill the deep, dark holes in our souls with material goods that reflect or enhance our personal brands and lifestyle idioms, and you can believe comic book merchants are getting in on the action.

Because we are the second kind and know you are too, we've assembled some helpful comics-related sellers who will be offering some unbelievable bargains this holiday season.

Lex Luthor Mr. Terrific Iron Man

The American version of Thanksgiving is this week, and whether you celebrate the holiday as a gathering of family or a get-together for friends, the day can always be a mixed bag in terms of the quality of people who show up. Sometimes they're family members you're obligated to invite, sometimes they're friends of friends, but somehow there's always someone who makes the day memorable, but not necessarily in a good way. Here are ten characters who might rain on your Thanksgiving Day Parade.

batsgiving01

The time is once again here for Thanksgiving in America, and while most of us just use the holiday as an excuse to binge on turkey, there is a deeper meaning behind it. It's the day that we set aside to honor the time that the Native Americans helped out the Pilgrims, who would not have otherwise survived the harsh winter in their new home. Things
