As Matthew flies across the Waking World and others, he finds a young boy named Timothy Hunter who, in his dreams, has become the world's most powerful magician-but in his nightmares he is the world's greatest villain. A new House has appeared in the realm of the Dreaming: the House of Whispers, with its proprietor, a fortune-teller called Erzulie.

BATMAN #52

(W) Tom King (A/CA) Lee Weeks
"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.

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.
