    It wasn t so awful that it deserved less than 3 stars, but to say I m disappointed is an understatement.Capullo is a talented artist, but I m not a fan of the chubby Batman Ok, maybe chubby isn t the right word Bobble headish You know, when they have the impossibly large head and chin Anyway, not my cuppa I m sure others will love it.Was the story any good Ehhhhhhh It wasn t bad, but I had some problems with the way Batman was portrayed He doesn t believe the legend about the Court of Owls is re [...]

    In this thrilling adventure, Scott Snyder breathes new life into the Batman franchise by introducing a terrifying new enemyThe Court of Owls While waging his war against crime, Batman has seen many horrible thingsBut all this time, an unseen horror has lurked in the shadows of Gotham City For over a hundred years, rumors have been whispered about a secret society that rules the streets of Gotham, an omnipresent group known as the Court of Owls Most people assume the tales to be mere campfire sto [...]

    The Court of Owls, a long rud secret society from Gotham s past, makes its presence known in the form of a knife wielding assassin called The Talon Can Batman hope to defeat an enemy even familiar with Gotham than him For my money, Scott Snyder can do no wrong Batman The Court of Owls is no exception At first glance, the tale looks like a combination of Batman The Black Glove and Batman Gates of Gotham but it s a better story than either so far I really want to gush about this but I don t want [...]

    As part of the DC s reboot of the month, the New 52, Bruce Wayne is back as Batman I won t be reading any other New 52 stuff because DC is addicted to retconning, and I don t want to be an enabler However, this one seems to have kept a big chunk of recent Bat happenings I am kind of oddly bummed that Dick Grayson isn t Batman any, but that s probably partially due to how much I loved Scott Snyder s Black Mirror story.Anyhow, Batman goes up against a secret society called the Court of Owls that a [...]

    The New 52 reboots Batman as the capable Caped Crusader but this time around he has some blind spots in thinking he knows everything there is to know about Gotham City.Enter the urban legend of the Court of Owls Batman doesn t believe they exist because he couldn t find any indication of them when he was an investigator boy so talk about a blind spot and ignores the talk until the urban legend begins to reveal itself as it targets Batman Beware the Court of Owls, that watches all the time, rulin [...]

    I enjoyed this Batman discovers there is a conspiracy afoot involving a super secret group that has been around for hundreds of years called The Court of Owls.They ve sent a seemingly unstoppable dude after him called the Talon I m all about creepy secret societies, so this Court of Owls thing worked for me Of course, Batman goes crazy and is tortured and gets all angsty nothing really new there, right.Nice illustrations Ends in a bit of a cliffhanger, but most of these things do Creepiest image [...]

    I haven t read all the New 52 titles who has the time these days to read everything they d really like to , but so far I ve been fairly impressed There have been numerous reboots and retcons in the DC Universe, but the New 52 actually does feel like a fresh start and not just another attempt to cash in on the resurging popularity of comic culture There are quite a few New 52 Batman titles, and Batman 1 kicks off the Court of Owls arc It s a sinister and atmospheric tale about secrets, conspiraci [...]

    I ve read this three times and it s still one of my favorite Batman story arcs Snyder is a heavy hitter and brilliant writer, and his and Greg Capullo s fantastically illustrated Batman is one of the few perfect New 52 titles along with Tomasi and Gleason s Batman Robin Seriously, if you don t like Snyder s Batman we can t be friends This is the beginning of an alternate origin story, starting with Batman as an adult well into his crime fighting career The cool thing is the Court of Owls story a [...]

    I was blown away by this graphic novel, which collects the first seven issues of The New 52 reinterpretation of Batman The hardcover book and dust jacket are beautiful, the artwork is gorgeous, and the storyline, which introduces The Court of Owls a new, worthy nemesis for Batman is enthralling It is easily on par with the beginnings of Batman The Long Halloween and Batman Hush, which are my two favorite Batman arcs I cannot wait for Volume 2 to see where this is going.

    The New 52 Batman under the authorship of Scott Snyder comes into being fully formed It opens with a punch out at Arkham Asylum featuring Batman against almost his entire rogue s gallery The Joker backs him up Fashion note Nice touch Riddler sporting a question mark shaped hairdo, but you re still dull as dishwater.In this volume, the male sidekicks are all here Nightwing, Red Robin and Damian, with NIghtwing playing the role of resident Batcave wit Batman also is able to access his computer fro [...]

    With his first volume in the New 52 Batman rebranding, Scott Snyder brings the Caped Crusader back to the basics I m normally not a fan of the Batman stories that feature him going up against monsters, aliens, or other super fantasy bad guys I gravitate towards the stories that are grounded So I really enjoyed Snyder s take here In this story, Batman goes up against a secret society that has ruled Gotham from the shadows all the way throughout history It s an organization that exists in the min [...]

    What did New 52 mean for Batman Apparently nothing It seems like the Bat family books have picked up exactly where they left off Where this will put them in the grand scheme of things come crossover time, I don t know But let s forget that for the time being The Court of Owls is Gotham s mythical bogeyman association As far as I know, it s a completely new innovation by Snyder, and it could open up a whole new line of storytelling for Batman Bring on the paranoid conspiracies Except that Batman, [...]

    I love the pictures, I love the story My kid even picked this up and said Wow see picture Is it obnoxious that Batman is disbelieving of The Court of Owls Yes But unfortunately adults can be blindsided by legitimate truths I ve known adults who thought Mexico was a state I currently know adults who think Trump will be a great president stabs self in the eyes So yes, Batman can be skeptical of a myth.Another of my daughter

    Buddy Read with the Shallow Readers I was late, but this one was all about the Batman This was my first strictly Batman I ve read so many so far that have appearances from him, Inustice, Batgirl, Wonder Woman But Reading about him in such a large role is very different And I really dig the Bats My favorite part of this volume was the labyrinth You see a side of Bruce that s vulnerable, crazy, intelligent, and flawed all at once Also, the way that a few pages are laid out gives you a real sense o [...]

    The book starts with the inmates of Arkham Asylum being set loose and I groaned, thinking Scott Snyder had fallen into using the template Batman story of the Dark Knight playing roundup with the villains but thankfully Snyder disposes of this tired trope quickly, almost as if he were winking just kidding before starting on something better Bruce Wayne is threatened by an assassin called the Talon, a seemingly indestructible villain, used as hired muscle by a shadowy organisation called the Court [...]

    I hadn t actually read any other Batman comic before However, I can tell how different Snyder s approach is This is a dark story that follows Batman deep into his battle against The Court of Owls, which is or less a battle against less profound enemies I liked how the side stories serve the main one in a way that s not so clear at the beginning but soon becomes essential The ending leaves the story open as it continues in the second volume.

    I was happy about DC s decision to release The New 52 line up particularly on how they were going to re define Batman and his other titles like Detective Comics, The Dark Knight and Batman and Robin I have just gotten back into comics by 2009 because of The Sandman and some other minor Dark Horse titles, so I was excited to get into the superhero genre again, and start with my childhood hero foremost I bought this tradeback copy of Snyder Capullo s The Court of Owls from the Manila International [...]

    Just finished the seventh issue last that will be included in this TPB , and I am floored Scott Snyder has been knocking it out of the park consistently for the past six months, scraping away at what might be one of the greatest Batman epics of all time Considering he just amazed everyone last year with his Black Mirror storyline, it s easy to see why Snyder is easily considered one of the best and my favorite writers in the industry right now.I feel the need to mention issue 5 of this in partic [...]

    This first volume of the Court of Owls series is an extraordinary read The story is spine tingling and the action fierce I love how it brings back the history of Gotham and how Batman faces this particularly evil challenge The artwork is extraordinary You are definitely impatient to read the next volume after this one

    Batman is back The bad guys are boring this time though They are owl people.

    Batman 1 What an opening sequence Batman is in Arkham Asyloum putting down an escape of most of his Rogues Gallery, thinking about the answers to the question What is Gotham A sequence that highlights Snyder s greatest strength the embracing of symbolism in thought squares The battle rages until Batman s nemesis joins the fray, then the story is all about his allies Three of the Robins, Commissioner Gordon, Barbara and others The art is simply drawn and faces seem too closely related from one ch [...]

    In keeping with our buddyread theme, I d say this one is like pancakese first two are really great, but by the fifth one you re just wondering what you saw in itYou know, for a long time, I never understood why Bats was called the greatest detective, because I ve never actually seen himtecting.Never fear, Snyder is here to fix that problem If you were secretly hankering for a CSI crossover with psychedelic elements, you re in luck If you weren t, wellere s a few badass action scenes in the begin [...]

    Somehow, this book floated around my account, review less, for about 5 years Thinking I had skipped it, I started it again, then filed it on my Fallen Off the Shelves shelf So I just decided to clear up my confusion with a reread.This is a pretty complex story It has gritty, everyday unsolvable killer on the loose Batman, until it twists and it has gritty, conspiracy on the loose Batman Another twist, and we play find the supervillain Then gritty, crazed, against all odds Batman Twist Twist Twis [...]

    Back in 2011, DC relaunched their superhero line with the New 52 initiative 52 new titles with new number one issues and continuity Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo got Batman and it has since become the linchpin of the entire line Snyder didn t set out to reinvent Batman as much as redefine the character Snyder s Batman is just like previous incarnations supremely confident in his abilities and reliant on his science and gadgets A tad over reliant sometimes, especially on empirical data.From the f [...]
