Continuing the Year of the Villain DC comic book event, this latest volume in the Detective Comics series focuses on Victor Fries and his long-awaited dream revolving around his wife Nora. The day he learned of the rapidly deteriorating health of his beloved one, his heart started to melt but his mind searched for solutions, even if the means to his end meant crime and death of countless innocent lives. As he dreams for the day he finally finds a solution that could thaw her out from her cryogenic chamber and embrace a new life, Mr. Freeze has always tilted back and forth between reason and criminality as he patiently waited for the day to come when he might finally have what he has longed for for far too many years. Collecting issues #1012-1019, writer Peter J. Tomasi explores a story-arc that will thaw through Victor Fries’ conscious until he realizes the inevitable consequences of his actions. What is Batman: Detective Comics: Cold Vengeance about? The story focuses on Victor Fries’ dream of bringing his wife Nora back to life, currently stuck in a cryogenic chamber at the mercy of his blinded love and passion for her past self. It is only thanks to a mysterious new substance procured by Lex Luthor that Victor Fries might finally see his dream come true. Unfortunately for him, his greatest wish comes with a surprise as Nora’s second chance at life sheds light on her own point of view on Victor Fries’ dreams of resurrection. This volume also collects a one-shot story about Bruce Wayne’s desire to help a runaway orphan while dealing with Gotham’s innumerable crimes as well as a grim two-part story where he goes up against a supernatural pagan spirit during the Holidays. While writer Peter J. Tomasi’s story-arcs so far in his Detective Comics run have been subpar to anyone’s expectations, this latest story centered around Victor Fries turned out much more self-contained, semi-polished, and mildly interesting. The premise of seeing Mr. Freeze reunited with his wife Nora is supposedly an obvious terrain to explore over the past years but seems rarely rehashed but his latest take on it offers fans the chance to see Batman in a new suit of armor, Freeze and his wife going full-out Bonnie and Clyde, and Freeze having to look in an unusual direction for help when his plans implode. Unfortunately, the story remains superficially entertaining, to say the least, and plays out like a cartoon episode lacking any true emotional depth that would’ve been expected from this story. Luckily, writer Tom Taylor’s one-shot orphan story, as well as writer Peter J. Tomasi’s two-part pagan holiday story, offer much more bang (really, not that much, to be honest) for your buck by the end of this volume. On the artistic front, it is safe to say that there is nothing exceptional accomplished throughout this volume but the final two-part story-arc presents Scott Godlewski’s artwork and it significantly stands out from the rest with its vibrant, clearly-defined, and solid artistic style. The rest of the volume remains decent enough to not warrant any complaints, mostly capitalizing on a harsher and rougher style that adds a certain grim tone to the overall story while colourist David Baron cleanly fills the pages with the usual tone and shading. As previously mentioned, the biggest surprise here remains Batman’s latest suit of armor to battle Mr. Freeze, a truly exciting visual spectacle that is sure to excite certain readers (especially younger ones) for its mere concept. Hopefully, this volume, a bit coerced by the recent DC event, is a promise of better stories to come in future volumes. Batman: Detective Comics: Cold Vengeance is an unimpressive collection of stories especially centered around Victor Fries and his reacquaintance with his soulmate Nora.

    Detective Comics Vol. 4 Cold Vengeance collects issues 1012-1019 by Peter Tomasi. With the aid of Luthor tech, Mr. Freeze will finally able to "cure" Nora and release her from suspended animation. Before he takes a chance on Nora, Freeze has first kidnapped many young women across Gotham to test this new cure. Another arc contains a mysterious Norseman who is ritualistically killing citizens. Finally, there is a one-off issue by Tom Taylor about a missing teenager from Bruce Wayne's orphanage. T Detective Comics Vol. 4 Cold Vengeance collects issues 1012-1019 by Peter Tomasi.

Finally, there is a one-off issue by Tom Taylor about a missing teenager from Bruce Wayne's orphanage. These were some great arcs. The arc about Nora was interesting and it is kind of shocking it hasn't been done before (if it has, I'm not aware of it). The arc with the Norseman was some cheesey holiday fun. I also really liked Tom Taylor's issue and would love to see more from him on a future Bat book. The art is all pretty strong here as well.

    So far I havent really been that impressed with Tomasis run. This involved Victor Fries and his wife, who once revived goes on some crime spree. Victor and the Bat kinda join forces etx etc. It just doesn't feel overly original. The artwork is inpressive though, especially the pencil work. Hopefully the next arc kicks this into gear So far I havent really been that impressed with Tomasis run. This involved Victor Fries and his wife, who once revived goes on some crime spree.

    Cold Vengeance is the Year Of The Villain arc for Detective Comics, which involves Mister Freeze resurrecting his wife Nora, who promptly goes on a crime spree, meaning Batman and Freeze must work together in order to stop her. I know a lot of stories surrounding Freeze invariably involve his wife, but I feel like this has been done before? I'm pretty sure it hasn't, but it's such a familiar vein that I can't shake the feeling that I've seen it somewhere before.

I'm pretty sure it hasn't, but it's such a familiar vein that I can't shake the feeling that I've seen it somewhere before. It's not BAD, but there's something off about the entire thing and I can't really explain why. It does look great though - Doug Mahnke's slick pencils are the perfect fit for an icy story. Also included in this volume are the one-and-done Orphans story from last Christmas, which is from Tom Taylor and Fernando Blanco. This is a great little one-shot that reminds us all that Batman does have a heart beneath all that kevlar. Then Scott Godlewski joins Tomasi for the next two-parter which is also holiday themed, but a little more wrote and a little less jolly as Batman battles a pagan 'deity'. This volume of Detective isn't bad - the supplementary issues are actually better than the main story, I think. Maybe if you've not read many Freeze stories before you won't get the same sense of deja vu that I had?
