About this art print
“Time for you is now frozen. Your world will remain at absolute zero.”
Sideshow presents the Mr. Freeze: Heart of Ice Fine Art Print by artist Chris Skinner.
The Mr. Freeze: Heart of Ice Fine Art Print captures a surprising moment of tenderness from Batman’s cryonic foe, frozen in time in this chilling illustration. Cutting through his cold demeanor, Victor Fries presents his wife Nora, suspended in cryostasis, with a flower and a promise that someday he will revive her when a cure can be found for her illness. Until that time, Mr. Freeze remains ice-olated in his laboratory, hoping to avenge the beloved wife to whom his cold, cold heart belongs.
Each Mr. Freeze: Heart of Ice Fine Art Print features an authorized, automated artist signature as well as an embossed Seal of Authenticity as a part of the limited edition of 300 pieces. In addition to the detailed coloration of the DC Comics artwork, the Mr. Freeze: Heart of Ice Fine Art Print utilizes unique glow in the dark ink that illuminates key aspects of the image, including Mr. Freeze’s pale portrait, Nora’s cryogenic chamber, and a dusting of frost across the scene.
