The case of Gotham City v Victor Fries, aka Mr. Freeze, continues in our preview of this week's Batman #52.
Writer Tom King and artist Lee Weeks bring us the second chapter of their Batman-centric courtroom drama-style story, which sees Bruce Wayne attempting to convince his fellow jurors to see what he sees: that Mr. Freeze is not guilty... at least not this time.

- “Cold Days” continues! The jury in the Mr. Freeze trial is hopelessly deadlocked because one man won’t vote guilty—and that man is Bruce Wayne. Freeze’s defense is that Batman used excessive force, making his arrest illegal, and Bruce is the one man who actually knows for sure what went down between Batman and his ice-cold nemesis. And if Bruce is right, that means everything he’s devoted himself to as the Caped Crusader is a lie; he is hurting more than helping. With Dick Grayson putting the Batsuit back on to keep Gotham City safe while Bruce is sequestered, could this be the out Bruce needs to discard the cape and cowl forever?
- The Eisner Award-nominated team of Tom King and Lee Weeks reexamine the relationship between hero and foe, as Batman relives not just that one violent night when he took down the King of Cold, but every time the two have come to blows.
