It’s Up To Batman And Detective Chimp To Save Christmas In Gotham

MTV News has an exclusive first look at DC REBIRTH HOLIDAY SPECIAL #1

When Christmas needs saving in Gotham, it's time to consult with the world's greatest detective: No, not Batman — Detective Chimp. Ugh. Fine. Bats can come along, too.

In DC Rebirth Holiday Special #1, Detective Chimp returns to Gotham for a special case involving a mall Santa, his missing prize-winning dog, and a crook named Jimmy “Fingers” McFinnegan. It's a good thing Bobo knows a guy in Gotham who might be able to help. MTV News can exclusively reveal three pages from “The Night We Saved Christmas,” featuring Batman and his old pal Detective Chimp from writer Heath Corson and artist Gustavo Duarte.

Wait. Did Bobo just take out one of Santa's little helpers?!

The 96-page holiday special also includes “Dreaming of a White Christmas,” featuring Wonder Woman and Constantine from writer Mariko Tamaki and artist Matías Bergara. In this three-page exclusive preview, Wonder Woman interrupts John Constantine's hell-blazing pagan party — just in time for things to get really, really weird.
