DC History Club & Friends Holiday Quiz

DC Christmas

Another Holiday Season, another excuse for the DC History Club to gather our friends around the old Yule log, sip egg nog and quiz everyone over their knowledge of the history of DC Holiday issues, episodes and toys. And, to help us we’ve invited some of our friends from clubs across the DCUI to add their expertise to the fun. And, when your done here, stop by your DCUI club of choice and dive in for more of the greatest fictional universe in history.

Special thanks to the Birds of Prey Club, Legion Fan Club, Harley’s Crew, World of Bats, the Justice League Book Club, the JSA Book Club and the Smallville Fan Club for playing along.
