In 2016, writer Tom King concluded spectacular runs on THE OMEGA MEN and Vision, as well as his war-torn crime noir THE SHERIFF OF BABYLON. But he also began the most high profile comics project of his career so far when he took over writing duties for BATMAN, which along with continuing to be one of the most popular books on the stands also made the leap to a twice monthly title.
The just released ALL STAR BATMAN #6 may just be the perfect super hero comic for a cold winter’s night. Set in Alaska, three hundred miles north of the Arctic Circle, it features Batman battling Mr. Freeze in one of the harshest climates imaginable to stop a plot that could destroy life as we know it. It’s a chilling story, both in setting and substance, and proves that when it comes to All Star Batman, Scott Snyder is thinking massive.

The past year was full of memorable moments, but some of these moments held real significance. Some of them really mattered. So as we do every year at this time, we thought we’d discuss a few of them.
