Book Review: Batman: Detective Comics, Vol. 4: Cold Vengeance

Batman: Detective Comics, Vol. 4: Cold Vengeance Batman: Detective Comics, Vol. 4: Cold Vengeance by Peter J. Tomasi

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book collects eight issues of Detective Comics by Peter Tomasi:

This starts out with the titular story, "Cold Vengeance" which ties into Lex Luthor messing around with things and giving villains gifts. In this case, Mr. Freeze is given a chance to cure his wife Nora. This doesn't go quite as planned and there are a number of good turns along the way. This story was definitely entertaining.

Then we get the one shot story, "Orphan" guest written by Tom Taylor that deals with problem at an orphonage named for Bruce Wayne's mother. This one packs an emotional twist and Robin (Damian Wayne) is involved and gives another dimension to that relationship. It's simple and heartfelt.

Finally, we have the two-parter, "Dead of Winter" which involves someone strange pagan rituals around Christmastime. It's a good seasonal tale that while not great, is still a fun read.

Overall, this is another solid book in a good run for Detective comics.
