Comic Book Review – Batman Vol. 1: The Court of Owls (The New 52 – 2013)

81tS8abE-cL

This story sets up the “Night of the Owls” storyline covering all the Batman books. In this story, Batman finds himself facing a sinister new villain (later named “Talon”) who knows much about his history. I’ve been an avid reader of comics for years and I can honestly say this was the second story I read where I was pretty sure Batman was toast in it (“Knightfall” was the first). Trapped in an obstacle course in some unknown place, Batman is stalked by the Talon and a sinister group of crazies who know all about him. As the story continues we find that Gotham and the Wayne family had a history even Bruce was unaware of. While this is a good story, I have to admit the “Night of the Owls” that I’ve seen so far is actually better simply because there isn’t one Talon after him, now it’s dozens of them. If one almost killed him, how can he defeat them all? Grab this one and enjoy this “reboot” from the new 52 that actually works.
