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,...

The Court of Owls, a long rumored 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 more familiar with Gotham than him?

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 bumm...

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...

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...

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 t...

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 yo...

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 enth...
