Batman Vol 1: The Court of Owls

Batman Vol 1: The Court of Owls Summary

#1 New York Times Best Seller! 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 with the relaunch of Batman, as a part of DC Comics—The 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?

Book Reviews


Flawless Batman Style5 star

The art is beautiful, almost every panel could be on the cover. The story is pure-Batman while at the same time giving the reader a new angle to view Gotham city and the Wayne family’s intertwined history. If you are looking for something that can make you feel the way you did the first time you experienced the “Arkham” video games or the first time you saw the movie (Dark Knight) then this is it.55

Snyder & Capullo Breath New Life Into the Batman Mythos!5 star

You’ll find yourself intrigued by the fact that this is, for the first time, a foe that not even Batman understands. The Court of Owls is indeed not just a myth, but a reality. An interesting look into the crumbled psyche of a broken Batman. Absolutely amazing story. This iBook is a solid copy, works great on my iPad Mini (2019)!55
