    "God is above us. And he wears a cape." Mama told me there?d be days like this: Cold Days, indeed. This was for me a veritable event in not just Batman comics, but comics, I mean it. Maybe in part because I had just read Twelve Angry Men, and maybe partly because I had not really ...

    Another episodic collection. In one arc, Bruce Wayne bribes his way onto a jury so he can poke some holes in the case, largely developed by Batman, against Mr. Freeze. Why? He has his reasons. Then there's a nice Bruce Wayne-Dick Grayson centric issue, focusing on their relationship ov...

    4.5 * I am not a Batman ?regular? like my GR friend David Schaafsma. So, I don?t have the wealth of experience he brings to his review. https://www.goodreads.com/review/show... I am aware of the mayhem and evil brought by Mr. Freeze, so that Freeze was on trial in first st...

    I didn't want to love this. Really, I didn't. I felt all tantrum-y after the end of the wedding-that-wasn't, and I truly wanted this to suck so that I could justify letting my inner 3 year old sit in the corner and kick the wall. Unfortunately, this was just fucking amazing. ...

    I received this from Edelweiss and DC Comics in exchange for an honest review. Another great look at Batman's psyche through a court case a la Twelve Angry Men, flashbacks from Dick's early times in the Wayne Manor, and on the hunt for a surprising assassin. I really like the wa...

    In the wake of the surprising Batman issue #50, Bruce Wayne is at a turning point emotionally. And that's fully explored in the most ingenious way possible in the first story arc (which takes up about half of this volume), and follows Bruce serving on jury duty in a trial for Mist...

    I hated the concept of building up a big wedding to Selina only to inevitably call it off in a traumatic way, but if this is going to be the payoff, I don't care so much anymore. This is some of the best written "Bruce is losing it" that I've seen in a long time, with some really cleve...

    Batman?s heart is all achy breaky thanks to the Cat lady and he acting maaaad. At the trial of Mister Freeze, one juror decides to tear apart the prosecution?s case, built in large part by Batman: Bruce Wayne! Think he?s suffered enough? Think again! Batman?s about to pain some...

    Okay I am just going to say it! I am not a fan of Tom King's version of Batman. I much preferred Scot Snyder's take. That does not mean I do not acknowledge that King is a skill writer and that up until this point I really enjoyed most of the stories. Its just that King's Batman is too...

    "God is above us. And he wears a cape." This series started/went from an interesting Bat-title, to my one and only. If Tom King ever moves on from Batman, I riot. Now that I've said my peace, this was a bat-tastic volume. Cold Days is an amazing storyline with gorgeous art do...

    This was an incredible entry to this run by Tom King. Two stories are invloved here one with Mr. Freeze. A surprising court room procedural, that is wonderfully effective and the return of Robin in a KGBeast story. Both these stories are well written and expand the characters wonderful...

    Cold Days (#51-53). The cheap description of this is "Bruce Wayne does 12 Angry Men". But, the comic goes so far beyond that, really going to the heart of who Bruce is as a person and how he's doing following his failed wedding. This is King writing Wayne at his best [5/5]. The Bett...

    ?If you?re a citizen of Gotham, then you know... this is a place for monsters. Demons. And there he is. Every shadow is met. Every horror put down. As citizens of Gotham we watch as he beats back the bullies. We see our brothers rescued, our sisters returned. A man with a bat on hi...

    Batman is a god to many people in Gotham, but he's just a broken man here. A look into the mind of a man who's devastated after being left by the love of his life. Bruce has jury duty, which in itself is pretty funny, but it's against Mr. Freeze. This time Bruce has a little look i...

    Now we?re supposedly halfway through Tom King?s 100-issue run, where does the writer take the Dark Knight after stripping away his last shred of happiness? In the first story arc of this volume, Bruce Wayne is called to serve on the jury for the trial of Mr. Freeze, who is accused ...

    This volume is a collection of stories where Batman tries to deal with the wedding fiasco. First one is as brilliant as they come, with an intense "Twelve angry men" plot where Bruce Wayne is juror in the trial of M. Freeze, Freeze having been punched into confession by a very angry...

    After getting left at the altar by the Natural Latex Company?s most valued customer (and, incidentally, someone who, despite her stated profession, misleadingly does not appear to have ever purloined a feline), what?s a man to do? If you?re Batman, you?d think it would involve ...

    Tom King's Batman is settling into reliably amazing. Like Gaiman's Sandman or Moore's Swamp Thing, King is telling a story with obvious epic scope through a series a tales that are simultaneously stand-alone and interconnected. I don't always agree with his choices (like the pages and ...

    Bruce Wayne gets selected as a juror on Mr. Freeze's trial. There he deals with his emotions over Catwoman leaving him at the altar while putting Batman's methods on trial in a variation of 12 Angry Men. It's wonderfully well done. Lee Weeks's art looks great. Then Matt Wagner comes on...

    Amazing. I?m gonna have to be vague to avoid spoilers. World: The art is fantastic, Weeks beautiful pages are full of character and a stillness that with sudden bursts of violence is perfect. It?s a great jarring visualization of the emotions brewing inside Bruce following issue...

    Cold Days: Bruce Wayne has jury duty, and he's about to go 12 Angry Men in defense of Mr. Freeze. Maybe I've been watching too many true crime documentaries lately, but I thought this was wonderful. Exactly the kind of bold, outside-the-box story I've come to expect from Tom King. B...

    Absolutely loved this one . The story showed the after math of the wedding and finished with Bruce facing another tragedy . This leads me to believe that we are going back to the times when Batman became very disturbed emotionally during the Jason Todd death and Breaking the bat st...

    This was a pretty deep volume. We start out with Bruce Wayne on a jury where Mr. Freeze is on trial..and Batman was the one that closed the case? I was confused by this but I think it's got something to do with the Catwoman situation and proving Batman isn't infallible. Then we have a ...

    Tom King goes from one bloody fantastic volume of Batman to another these days. This is the fallout from the wedding that took place in the previous book, and Batman is going through some serious emotional trauma as he gets the jury duty for the trial of Mr Freeze. I loved the wedding ...

    You can find my review on my blog by clicking here. With every volume released, Tom King continues to show his visionary artistic story-telling talents that gradually rely heavily on artwork rather words to tell a compelling story. His particular style draws a lot of critical attent...

    The first story is a straight ripoff of 12 Angry Men, except much less clever. The next story involves some BFF action between Bruce and Dick, and is much better. ...

    Damn.. this is the 4th book I?ve given 5 stars this week, I?ve really been enjoying a lot recently. Anyways. There are three arcs and loved them all. The first being about mr freeze and how Batman used excessive force against him to force a confession that wasn?t true. Mr fr...
