A direct follow up to Red Hood and the Outlaws #9, and tangentially connected to Night of the Owls, the first Batman annual presents a spotlight on Mr. Freeze. In his retconned origin, Bruce Wayne is Fries' worst enemy, not Batman, and the love he has always professed for Nora Fries hides an ugly and disturbing truth; indeed, Victor Fries has always been a damaged individual.

Somebody at DC needs to immediately sign up an exclusivity contract with Fabok and Steigerwald, and then put them in a high-profile title. The art in this annual is fantastic; from the exquisite pencils to the impeccable coloring, the story is a visual delight. The subtle effect on Freeze's helmet is a nice, eye-catching touch. Night of the Owls is used only as bait to attract the readers' attention; however, it is fortunate that "First Snow" does not disappoint and is very well executed. A must have.
