    How did I miss this one I could have sworn I read the conclusion to the Court of Owls thing And I did.Sort of What I actually read was Batman The Night of the Owls, which is a crossover collection book.No biggie, right Wrong The crossover book doesn t have the actual ending of the story in it Oh My God Ok, I get what you were telling me about Thomas Wayne now, Sesana.That whole chunk is left out of the crossover, but it still ends withwell, the feeling of an ending, so I thought I d r How did I miss this one I could have sworn I read the conclusion to the Court of Owls thing And I did.Sort of What I actually read was Batman The Night of the Owls, which is a crossover collection book.No biggie, right Wrong The crossover book doesn t have the actual ending of the story in it Oh My God Ok, I get what you were telling me about Thomas Wayne now, Sesana.That whole chunk is left out of the crossover, but it still ends withwell, the feeling of an ending, so I thought I d read the whole thing.So Yeah, it s pretty important to read this, and not just skip over to Night of the Owls in the hopes that you ll catch all the relevant stuff in this story arc.As far as the whole Court of Owls stuff, I m still farimpressed with Batman, Vol 3 Death of the Family This wasn t bad, but I still say it was fishy that Batman had no idea all of this Secret Society stuff was going on right under his nose

    I have really enjoyed this story arc about the court of the Owls It has been fantastic and some of the best story I have read in the new 52 so far I would love to see this made into a movie I think it is some great stuff.Batman is back and unstoppable as ever The owls are still around, but many of them have been gone, but the twist shows up as an Owl I think it s a well done twist I hope the owls come back later in the series This has been a great addition to the Gotham universe The art I have really enjoyed this story arc about the court of the Owls It has been fantastic and some of the best story I have read in the new 52 so far I would love to see this made into a movie I think it is some great stuff.Batman is back and unstoppable as ever The owls are still around, but many of them have been gone, but the twist shows up as an Owl I think it s a well done twist I hope the owls come back later in the series This has been a great addition to the Gotham universe The art and action is well done and there is a real story here Batman is so isolated He has a lot of issues Poor Alfred He keeps his friend going I hope the rest of the series is as good

    Batman isn t known for being chatty, so when he runs into a villain who talks and talks and talks, while smacking Bats around it makes for one long monologue We re talking pages and pages We get it, you re deluded view spoiler He s convinced he s Bruce Wayne s long lost nutty brother hide spoiler , and crazy Just shut up long enough to take a punch or a batarang to the noggin This is the wrap up for now of the Court of Owls storyline, it s terrific and one of the few bright spots in DC Batman isn t known for being chatty, so when he runs into a villain who talks and talks and talks, while smacking Bats around it makes for one long monologue We re talking pages and pages We get it, you re deluded view spoiler He s convinced he s Bruce Wayne s long lost nutty brother hide spoiler , and crazy Just shut up long enough to take a punch or a batarang to the noggin This is the wrap up for now of the Court of Owls storyline, it s terrific and one of the few bright spots in DC s New 52 venture Also included here is Mr Freeze s backstory, which will makesense if you read Red Hood and the Outlaws, Volume 2 There s an issue devoted to Alfred s Daddy s involvement with the Owls and one of those issues that shows how Batman impacts an ordinary Gothamite.Alfred s lucky penny quip shouldn t be missed

    The Court of Owls is striking all over Gotham and their first target is Wayne Manor Can an injured Bruce Wayne and Alfred fight them off and mobilize the rest of the Bat Family And what is Bruce Wayne s connection to the Court The Court of Owls storyline comes to a conclusion in this volume Batman dons a suit of armor and kicks some undead ass as he figures out who is leading the Court of Owls in it s assault on Gotham view spoiler I liked that Lincoln Marsh was revealed as the head of the The Court of Owls is striking all over Gotham and their first target is Wayne Manor Can an injured Bruce Wayne and Alfred fight them off and mobilize the rest of the Bat Family And what is Bruce Wayne s connection to the Court The Court of Owls storyline comes to a conclusion in this volume Batman dons a suit of armor and kicks some undead ass as he figures out who is leading the Court of Owls in it s assault on Gotham view spoiler I liked that Lincoln Marsh was revealed as the head of the Court and he may or may not be Batman s long lost brother, Thomas Wayne Jr, who appeared in one tale pre Crisis, only he was an older bad seed brother in that depiction Owlman s ambiguous end leaves the door open forCourt of Owls intrigue down the line hide spoiler That s about all there is to it Snyder crafts a pretty creepy Batman tale and Capullo s art is up to the task The only gripe I have is that it felt like a ton of stuff was missing, probably because I ve only read the Scott Snyder Bat title in the New 52 and not all the ancillary bat stuff.Four stars Snyder is shaping up to be the best bat writer in decades

    This made me feel extremely schizophrenic because I m a big fan of Scott Snyder, and I really like the way that he writes Batman However, the story engages in something that I despise in comics in that it tries to overlay some kind of secret history onto a well known character The set up here is that an ancient secret society known as the Court of Owls has been lurking in shadows of Gotham City for centuries and that they ve gone public with a series of attacks against influential citizens lik This made me feel extremely schizophrenic because I m a big fan of Scott Snyder, and I really like the way that he writes Batman However, the story engages in something that I despise in comics in that it tries to overlay some kind of secret history onto a well known character The set up here is that an ancient secret society known as the Court of Owls has been lurking in shadows of Gotham City for centuries and that they ve gone public with a series of attacks against influential citizens like Bruce Wayne by their army of henchmen called the Talons As Batman and his allies fight to stop the Talons murder campaign, Bruce learns some potentially disturbing news about his parents.There s a lot to like in this collection When the Talons attack Wayne Manor, Bruce has to fight them off with a combination of bat weapons and artifacts from the cave along with a little help from Alfred It was a great combination of the newly 52 revamped Batman with the established character bits to make a fun and exciting sequence Another non Owl related story shows how Batman has secretly wired Gotham so that he can control the security cameras on the streets and keep himself from being recorded That was a very slick idea that shows just how well Snyder understands what makes Batman work.However, the whole notion that there has been a powerful secret group manipulating Gotham makes Bruce look kinda stupid since he never discovered it in all his years of batmanning Plus, trying to manufacture some drama out of hinting at conspiracies involving Bruce s parents and Alfred s father is the kind of stunt crap that nearly killed comics in the 90s Frankly, I expectfrom Scott Snyder during a Batman reboot.My favorite part in this was an interlude where Mr Freeze breaks out of Arkham, and we get a revamped origin story for him that feels very much like the Freeze that we know, but Snyder puts a wicked twist on this new version of the character that makes you look at him in a whole new light That s what a retcon like 52 should hopefully do, and I think Snyder is the perfect guy to be writing Batman during this phase I d just like to see him working onthings like that and less trying to make it seem like Gotham City is just one vast conspiracy that has fooled Batman for years

    The latter half of the Court of Owls story This collection is a bit scattered with a Mr Freeze origin story right in the middle of the Court of Owls story Snyder manages to insert a cool twist in the latter half of the story that references some very old Batman comics In the end, Snyder and Capullo deliver some great new characters to Batman s mythos and rogues gallery If I were to read this now, I d get the whole collection in Batman The Court of Owls Saga The latter half of the Court of Owls story This collection is a bit scattered with a Mr Freeze origin story right in the middle of the Court of Owls story Snyder manages to insert a cool twist in the latter half of the story that references some very old Batman comics In the end, Snyder and Capullo deliver some great new characters to Batman s mythos and rogues gallery If I were to read this now, I d get the whole collection in Batman The Court of Owls Saga
