Ell as his crime fighting partnersHowever there were a couple of elements that didn t do much for me The story with the Court of Owls trapping Batman and trying to brainwash him seemed aot Bulbophyllums; the Incomplete Guide, From A to WHY? like the old Cult storyline from days of yore And while Iiked the concept of the Owls what I really want is for Snyder to put Batman up against one of his arch villains Alhambra like Joker or Two Face in an extended storyline A 85% Extraordinary Notes A book of apocalypse an awakening where silent darkness emerges from myth and rhyme into theight of existence In this thrilling adventure Scott Snyder breathes new ife into the Batman franchise by introducing a terrifying new enemyThe Court of OwlsWhile waging his war against crime Batman has seen many horrible thingsBut all this time an unseen horror has urked 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 stories told for the sole purpose of scaring the citizens of Gotham After all in over 100 years no one has ever found any evidence of the Court s existenceat Its a Lat Lat Lat Lat World least no one who hasived to tell about it But Batman must uncover the truth behind the urban The Infinite Air legend especially now that the Court has sent an unstoppable assassin afterBruce WayneDespite the fact that I veoved Scott Snyder s writing in the past I still went into The Court of Owls with a bit of trepidation After all I first started reading Batman comics in the early 80s and the idea of DC s New 52 banner wiping out so much of that history and trying to reboot the Batman franchise sounded The Spill like it was doomed to fail But I still had aot of fun reading the first story arc of the new Batman series For one thing this Batman actually makes a joke now and then Yes grim and gritty elements can add gravitas to the story but so many of the 90s Batman books overdid it to the point that the always brooding Batman was almost devoid of any personality In fact having read so many of those grim avenger of the night stories I especially Pandoras Planet loved when Snyder had Dick Grayson hit Batman with this zinger So it s trueyou actually do practice brooding Under Snyder s watch Batman is still haunted but the fact that he actually cracks a smile once in a while makes him evenikable and sympathetic than ever before In addition Snyder s first person narration from Batman s point of view provides genuine character introspection as verses the Is It Bedtime Wibbly Pig? lame I am the night rhetoric that so many other writers fall back on But what really wowed me the most about this story was the inclusion of a new enemy to the Batman rogues gallery Let s be honest in theast couple of decades attempts to introduce the next big Batman villain haven t always been successful Sure Bane was cool in Knightfall and in the Dark Knight Rises Bane was cool in Knightfall and in the Dark Knight Rises but he didn t really serve a whole How To Win At Casino Gambling lot of purpose in the 20 years inbetween And try explaining The Black Glove and Dr Simon Hurt to anyone who doesn t have a working knowledge of ateast 30 years worth of Batman canon Grant Morrison can never make things simple can he But I found the concept of The Court of Owls to be executed "flawlessly The idea of Batman fighting an urban egend was such a delicious parallel considering "The idea of Batman fighting an urban Legend Was Such A Delicious Parallel Considering was such a delicious parallel considering consider Batman himself to be an urban egend And Snyder never falls back on hackneyed straw man tactics to make the Court interesting his brilliant writing is all it takes for us to feel the same terror Batman does when he realizes just how far the Court s reach truly extendsAn exciting adventure sprinkled with humor and horror The Court of Owls is a fun ride for new and old Batman fans alike In closing I When Not to Build lleave you with this rhyme from the book which citizens of Gotham tell each other to send shivers down their spines Beware the Court of Owls that watches all the timeRuling Gotham from a shadowed perch behind granite and imeThey watch you at your hearth they watch you in your bedSpeak not a whispered word of them or they l send The Talon for your head Snyder and Capullo create a modern Batman in a world of dark horror mystery and emotion Much in the way Morrison retconned Batman s continuity Snyder expands his mythology including his trauma family training and Gotham s underworld Never et your emotions guide you on a case Bruce says but that s precisely what he doe.
