2018 In Review:
The tone of the stories goes from light to very dark and some middle ground in between. This might be a matter of personal taste, but I think the book ends on too steep a downer, leaving a sort of bleh taste in the mouth on conclusion, and would have preferred to conclude the collection with something a little more upbeat.

As for Mister Freeze, can he find solace from the heat in some of the simpler pleasures that the season has to offer? What can Lex Luthor learn from a basic act of human kindness after his car breaks down? Can Black Manta truly be trusted, and will Deathstroke deliver on a hit to kill an abusive father? And on the distant reality known as Earth 3, what fate awaits the Crime Syndicate when one of their own turns on them?
