A new look at the Dark Knight by Scott Snyder and long-time Spawn artist, Greg Capullo. This has turned out to be a runaway hit for DC Comics and this first volume introduces an evil organization called The Court of Owls to Batman's already vast Rogues Gallery. Excellent writing and art, highly recommended.

The New 52 is going hard and this comic is one of the best in the last 2 years from DC, let alone Batman.

One of the best comic books I have ever read you get the feeling that this is the more arrogant batman and that he won't believe in nursery rhymes and the supporting characters added depth to the story

Really enjoyed this comic. Artwork was good & the humor is there from the characters. the court of owls is really creepy and the assassin is good as well. Give it a try ad you won't regret it.

Creepy villains and equally creepy writing are the highlights of the book's early pages. You quickly get the sense that things are serious and this creative team means business. The series's overarching premise -- a shadowy conspiracy has long been at work behind the scenes in Gotham -- is intriguing, but the efforts to retrofit the concept to Batman's known history seem labored. At this point, there are precious few rocks left to be overturned in Bruce Wayne's past. Also, the monomaniacal emphasis in recent Bat-books on Gotham City's fate, future and nature come across as confining, even claustrophobic, for a heroic character who has always been capable of more.

I don't think the Batman title has enjoyed such an overall level of quality since Jeph Loeb and Jim Lee did "Hush." I know when a book is good that after I have borrowed and read it I want to own a copy. Looking forward to reading the second half of this story arc!

As usual Batman brings out the best in writers and artists. He is visually the most compelling of all the superheroes and he fits perfectly in his natural environment, the multiform Dark of Gotham. I realize Batman is a costume fantasy, with the S&M dialed way up, but I would prefer Batman did not get captured so much by relentless killers who don't take advantage to actually kill him, it breaks the credibility, even if it provides good visuals and opportunities for M appropriate to the fantasy.

Jumpin' Jupiter Batman another far-out 52! Sooo glad I have part 2 ready to read! Scary, dark and the villian(s) WOW!. It's going to be hard to top this.5/5 stars. The only part that I didn't really care for was the flashback of Bruce Wayne as a boy 'hunting' for the Court of Owls after his parents death, he was 8-10 years old, then stating "in many ways, it was my first case as a detective". I just don't think it was needed and it would've been fine without it. It's too much even for Batman.

I thought it was one of the better Batman comics I have read. It was dark and gritty and the way Batman should be.

This is probably one of the best Batman comics I have read.It kept to the rough attitude of Bruce Wayne and has a really good plot. I especially enjoyed when Batman goes HAM on the owl people.
