Bizarro Back Issues: Batman In The Worst Thanksgiving Ever (1954)

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 eventually turned pretty sour between the two groups, but that first Thanksgiving stands as a testament to the power of people helping each other through the rough times.
However, Batman apparently never got the memo about brotherhood and equality, which is why a 1954 story in Detective Comics #205 found the Dark Knight traveling back in time to drop the hammer on Gotham City's indigenous population in the name of Bat-Imperialism and discovering "The Origin of the Bat-Cave!" It's one of our favorite crazy stories, and we're rerunning this classic Bizarro Back Issues feature this week in honor of the occasion.

50 Comic Book Covers Celebrating Thanksgiving [Art]

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!

Watch Stan Lee’s Animated Cameo in ‘Big Hero 6’

‘Big Hero 6’ may only be tangentially related to the Marvel comic on which it is based and completely unconnected to the larger Marvel cinematic universe, but it still has the obligatory Stan Lee cameo. Yes, this is an animated movie featuring an animated version of the legendary comic book icon/Marvel mascot. But hey, it’s a tradition at this point.
