All-Star Batman #6 is a chilling tale featuring Mr. Freeze!

You think after going on the buddy road trip from hell with Two-Face in the last arc of All-Star Batman, the Dark Knight would spend some time recuperating and at least chilling out in his home city of Gotham for a bit.

Now, issue #6 will primarily deal with Mr. Freeze, but this isn’t nearly as lengthy an arc as the one that just happened with Two-Face. Essentially something happens to Batman in Alaska that he needs to find a cure for due to his encounter with freeze. Then in issue #7, he is seeking out Poison Ivy in Death Valley for a cure to what has happened to him. Scott Snyder mentioned that while issues #6-9 might seem like one shots, there is a through line to them. Find out what happens to Batman and why he’ll need to go from an icy hell to a burning one starting with All-Star Batman #6 out tomorrow, January 11th!
