About the Book



"Originally published in single magazine form in Batman"--Colophon.



Book Synopsis



For over a century, the Court of Owls has ruled Gotham City in secret--their reach inescapable, their power unstoppable.

Until they battled the Batman.

Gotham's vigilante protector managed to escape the talons of the Court with his mind and body barely intact. The Dark Knight managed to win the battle with his deadly new aggressors, but certainly not the war. Batman was just the first part of their conquest. Now they have their sights set on something much bigger: Gotham City.

A critical and commercial smash, Batman: The City Of Owls (collecting Batman #8-12 and Batman Annual #1) continues the instant-classic saga of the Dark Knight's battle with Gotham City's oldest and darkest forces from the #1 New York Times best-selling creative team of writer Scott Snyder (American Vampire) and artist Greg Capullo (Spawn), plus an array of talented guest contributors!



Review Quotes




Praise for Scott Snyder's Batman: Court of Owls Vol. 1

"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
