Comics _ DC _ Christmas _ Short ... help!
January 16, 2020 1:13 PM   Subscribe

I am seeking a comic book that includes a short tale of a woman in a car that won't start getting increasingly panicky as a shadowy figure approaches. It turns out to be a policeman who gives the car a push and gets her on her way. I am pretty certain this was in a collection of Christmas-themed stories published by DC in the 1980s, but it isn't the Super Star Holiday Special (April 1980). Any ideas?

We're not talking about "Silent Night of the Batman" (1969), right?

"The Night of Thanks But No Thanks" (1986) had Batman interrupting a "car theft" which was just a lady who'd locked her keys in her car. Bats helped her unlock her car. Not a Christmas story, though.

Found it. SPrintF, thanks for your help because it opened the path to me finding it, which is that it ISN'T a Christmas story or in a special edition.

It's a "Tales of Gotham City", "Encounter," in Detective Comics 490.
