The Justice League Faces An “Endless Winter” This December!

This December, the Justice League learns firsthand the meaning of “Revenge is a dish best served cold,” in Justice League: Endless Winter, a nine-issue event taking place throughout the month of December.

1000 years ago, a disparate group of heroes – Hippolyta, Black Adam, Swamp Thing and the Viking Prince – banded together to prevent the world from freezing at the hands of the Frost King, an exiled Norse god with the ability to control entire ecosystems. The heroes triumphed, but victory came at a terrible price, one that has been kept secret until now.

Justice League: Endless Winter spans a total of nine titles, all co-written by Ron Marz and Andy Lanning.
