I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This book is a compilation of two story arcs, the first called Cold Days, in which Bruce deals with the aftermath of losing Selina and also being called on jury duty in Mr. Freeze’s trial. The second, Burden of the Beast focuses on Bruce’s relationship with Dick, and some stuff that happens with that. I loved the first story arc. It was masterful in the art and writing. Bruce’s grief is so apparent, and his handling of it is poignant. There was a single page of imagery—Bruce Wayne fighting Batman—that I adored. It gave me goosebumps. There is so much moral ambiguity. And the way the artists characterize the other jury members is fantastic. Compared to the previous arc, the one following it felt a lot weaker. There was one comic that compares Dick-as-Nightwing to his younger self, right after his parents murders. The similarities and juxtaposition was beautifully written. The rest, however, just kind of dragged for me. The KGBeast isn’t my favorite villain, so that’s more my fault and not the book’s fault. (And the comic about the ‘children’s’ story grossed me out). Overall, I felt the handling of Bruce’s grief was fascinating, but the end didn’t really entice me to want more.
