Batman Vol. 1: The Court of Owls (The New 52) (Batman (DC Comics Paperback))

Product Description

Imported from USA


“A+. The hero's got personality (and is unafraid to release a quip as sharp as a Batarang), a horde of
supervillains, gumption to spare and a whole host of high-tech gadgetry to suitably impress longtime fans and those new
to the Dark Knight.” —USA Today

“This is one of the best comics of the week.” —The New York Times

“[Writer Scott Snyder] pulls from the oldest aspects of the Batman myth, combines it with sinister-comic elements from
the series’ best period, and gives the whole thing terrific forward-spin by setting up an honest-to-gosh mystery for
Batman to solve.” —Entertainment Weekly

“Scott Snyder, already the company's greatest asset over the last four weeks, spins a stack of plates immediately…. Too
often Batman comics focus heavily on the hero persona … Snyder sets up equal amounts of conflict for both Wayne's public
and private personas.” —Time Out Chicago

“A stunning debut…. Snyder knows these characters, sets up an intriguing mystery, and delivers some action that Capullo
realizes stunningly. This is definitely in the top rank of the revamp. —The Onion/AV Club

“Hits all the right notes. I enjoyed the living hell out of this.” —io9

“Bruce Wayne is a badass. The end.” —IGN

“There's enough here, kept at a high enough level to make it interesting and viable across media and digestible enough
for even the most novice DC Universe reader…. Score one for DC and score one for Snyder and Capullo in finding a new
fan.”—Comic Book Resources
