It's the biggest blizzard of the year, and everyone in Gotham City is doing what they can to help. Find out what Batman, Robin, Alfred, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze, Veil, Poison Ivy and more get up to when snow brings Gotham City to a standstill!

Fire and Ice- Batman(Dick Grayson) and Robin (Damian Wayne) patrol Gotham during an intense blizzard. During their patrol they stop thugs from robbing an old woman, looters stealing TVs, and a father from trying to kill an other man. The last one almost kills Batman, but his son stops him, almost getting killed in the process. This event makes the man rethink his life and actions during the blizard.

The Hero of Orphan Alley- Three friends who live in Orphan Alley come to the conclusion that Batman is in fact Batmen. So they decide to be come costume heroes and protect the people of Orphan Alley. They stop a armed robbery, but two nights later they are attacked by Killer Croc.

She takes Fiona to the hospital where she learns that the couple have been hiding underground for years. After Fiona passes away, Catwoman takes Wilson home. Along the way The Snow Queen confronts Catwoman and gives her the jewels that Catwoman has been after. Catwoman then gives the jewels to Wilson out of respect for his loss.

Are The 80 Pagers Back? Nice Series of Shorts! 0

Not since the Silver Age have I seen an 80 page giant, especially that which has my favorite superhero Batman, though interestingly he does not have a lot to do in this issue.  Many supporting characters get their shot at the spotlight, even one I haven't heard of.    All the stories deal with handling a blizzard in Gotham, as a running theme.  The city is shut down.  Now what?  Fire & Ice, writer Kevin Grevioux, inker nelson Asencio.  Batman (not Wayne, long story for those not in the know)...
