The KGBeast lives! The Russian super-assassin is back-but under whose orders? Does he have a specific mission, or is this simply some leftover Cold War mayhem? Nyet, comrade-it has to do with Bruce Wayne's recent court case involving Mr. Freeze. Something is rotten in Gotham, and you can still smell it, even if it's on ice!

I’m convinced that these are just King fans and not Batman fans because the shit way he’s writing this character can’t be pleasing to anyone who enjoys Batman. Nothing ever makes any damn sense. He just tells his “story” without regard to making things and events connect in a coherent manner. The book actively pisses me off now.
