Ten Moments that Mattered: Astro City #16's Poignant Twist

With a new year on the horizon and the holidays upon us, it’s a good time to take a look back at 2014 to remember and remark upon a few of its key DC Entertainment moments. Some of these moments played out on the comic book page or the screen, others were real-life happenings that shaped what we’ll be reading and seeing over the years ahead. If you’re a DC Comics fan or just an entertainment fan in general, they all mattered. It’s been a great year full of both ups and downs, but these are the big ones. These are our DCComics.com “Ten Moments that Mattered” for 2014.

The Roundup: A Very Harley Holiday

Holiday shopping getting you down? Is the thought of spending Christmas with your in-laws enough to make you consider moving to North Pole? Have you heard “Grandma Got Ran Over by a Reindeer” so… many… GOSH… DARN… TIMES that you’re on the brink of running someone down yourself? Well, don’t do that (no, really, please don’t do that). Instead, grab a copy of this week’s HARLEY QUINN HOLIDAY SPECIAL #1. It’s 48 pages of merriment and mayhem guaranteed to make even the biggest Scrooge smile.

The Roundup: Batman Returns to Zero

People say that it’s not good to live in the past, but we respectfully disagree. At least when it comes to Batman. After last week’s spoilerrific flash-forward issue, this week marks the return of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s “Zero Year” in BATMAN #29. When last we left our young hero, he was literally drowning in trouble, and this week’s cover should make it pretty clear which of his adversaries is behind it. But how will he escape? For the answer to that riddle, you’ll need to pick up the issue, which serves as the conclusion to the second chapter of “Zero Year,” which we’ve been calling “Dark City.”
