15 posts | 38 read | 9 to read
Following his ground-breaking, critically acclaimed run on Detective Comics, writer Scott Snyder (American Vampire) alongside artist Greg Capullo (Spawn) begins a new era of The Dark Knight as with the relaunch of Batman, as a part of DC ComicsThe New 52! After a series of brutal murders rocks Gotham City, Batman begins to realize that perhaps these crimes go far deeper than appearances suggest. As the Caped Crusader begins to unravel this deadly mystery, he discovers a conspiracy going back to his youth and beyond to the origins of the city he's sworn to protect. Could the Court of Owls, once thought to be nothing more than an urban legend, be behind the crime and corruption? Or is Bruce Wayne losing his grip on sanity and falling prey to the pressures of his war on crime? Collects issues #1-7 of Batman.

Scott Snyder re-imagines Batman's origin in a gripping story of conflict with a secret society ruling Gotham. Snyder's Batman is human, flawed, and pushed to the edge of madness.

This volume blew my mind. I really enjoyed this storyline and the turns it took. I liked the look back at Gotham‘s history and the psychological war as much as the physical one Batman/Bruce is involved in. Wow. Just wow.

I was so tempted to get this slipcover set at the bookstore! After reading Dark Nights Metal for #cbbr I wanted to read some more Batman by Scott Snyder, and @GrilledCheeseSamurai had recommended Court of Owls. My book buying ban and long list of books to read stopped me. Also, it is $50. Someday, this will be mine.

GrilledCheeseSamurai If you enjoyed Metal you'll definitely enjoy these ones. It's a terrific run and alot easier to follow. 😂 2y

"Tomorrow is one dream away."

Enjoyable, if a bit gruesome at times. Interesting storyline. I'm trying to prepare myself for the current #CBBR #WeveGotIssues read, since I haven't read any Batman comics in a long time.

Could do this version of Batman. He had way to much going on in the way of gadgets and the writing dragged for me. #LetsGetGraphicMonthlyFeature @TricksyTails @Clwojick

TricksyTails Aww this is my favorite run on Batman. I understand completely where you‘re coming from. I admit, Snyder can be wordy sometimes. I‘m sorry you didn‘t enjoy it. Good thing there are so many different Batman series to choose from! 😊 2y
Erin7 I think I‘m going to give it another go this weekend. I didn‘t get very far. I may just need to push through a bit more. (edited) 2y

Checking out the new 52! I loved Batman so much when I was a child but as I grew up I pushed him to the back. Now, I'm completely obsessed again. Really can't wait to continue this series.

Dark and unsettling, with moments of genuine terror. This is a vision of Batman that blows anting "comic" away.

Best 1st volume I've read in a long time. Best graphic I've read this year.

So excited to finally jumping into DC comics after reading Marvel for a decade. I'm so glad my library has a great graphic novel selection.
