The Rundown: Gotham continues to change all around him and Batman might not be prepared for what comes next.
After being frozen by Mr. Freeze, it’s a race against time and temperature as Batman’s suit tries to thaw him out and his enemy works to free himself as well. When his quarry escapes, Batman finds himself in the hands of Freeze who has a message for him. A message that could help the dark knight if he promises to leave Freeze alone forever.
At the same time, Arzen Orgham questions the plan he finds himself in the center of. As his subordinates begin the next phase, he decides to try to make a new friend. A new friend named Bruce Wayne. As the two bond over shared tragedy, the Orgham’s unleash destruction on the city in order to bring their own version of order. Order that might be too much for Batman to face in a changing city.
The Story: Ram V delivers an intense and entertaining thriller in this issue. There is some great tension throughout the story with Batman and Freeze as well as some interesting character development with Arzen that I look forward to seeing explored. I love the sense of uncertainty in the arc and cannot wait to see what happens next.
The Art: Reis delivers some glorious visuals throughout the issue. The action is beautifully visualized and there are some great character moments that capture the tone of the story.
