Book Description

8 Oct 2013 Batman: the New 52
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 with this critically acclaimed, New York Times #1 best-selling graphic novel! 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? Collecting Batman #1-7, this seminal graphic novel is now paired with a replica mask worn by the villainous Court of Owls, a must-have for any true fan of Scott Snyder's groundbreaking work.

Product Description

Review

"This is a clever and sophisticated Batman--with a dark, edgy, and thought-provoking narrative ably abetted by Capullo's pulpish, detailed art. Readers will find it hard to put down."--Publishers Weekly, starred"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

4.0 out of 5 stars Unoriginal? 8 Feb 2014
By No More Mr. Mice Guy TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This story runs through issues #1-7 of the New 52 Batman comic, collected as Batman Volume 1: The Court of Owls TP (The New 52). It then continues through issues #8-12, and into Annual #1, all collected as Batman Volume 2: The City of Owls HC (The New 52).

The story is pretty simple, as Batman discovers yet another secret society of Gotham’s high society, who are secretly controlling Gotham, from secret bases built in secret into some of the most famous buildings of Gotham, and kept secret until Batman uncovers their secret, and subsequently uncovers the secrets hidden in the history of the Wayne family, not to mention the secrets in the histories of the Grayson and Pennyworth families, and also discovers that the secret mastermind behind it all is the person we all assumed it would be as soon as we set eyes on him, and who turns out to be Bruce Wayne’s long lost secret [spoiler], though that is in the second volume, along with a revised and much creepier origin for Mr Freeze.

The Court of Owls also have a secret army of zombie ninjas, recruited from the cream of Gotham’s servants and entertainers, which they keep in suspended animation until required.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect 16 Oct 2013
By Catalin
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What can i say? I love it. The story is good, the graphics are fine, the mask is spooky. The only downsize is that i assumed the support for the mask (as u see in the picture) will be included (but it's not) and i was somehow under the impression it's a hardcover edition of the book, but it's only paperback. The mask is a bit bigger for my head, but i still look great with it on. Real fun. Otherwise i have no reasons to complain. I strongly recommend the product for any Batman fan.
As for Amazon, great service. It arrived in one day after dispatch and in perfect condition. I even got almost 3 pounds refund as advertised.

5.0 out of 5 stars The New 52 8 Nov 2013
By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This reboot of Batman is incredible, if you are a fan, I really recommend this story. This book comes with an 'Owl' mask which is just brilliant, it is a flexible plastic with cushioning on the brow and a pre-fixed elastic headband. For this price it is a great little set - it does not come with the stand pictured though. Recommended for a great story and fantastic mask.

4.0 out of 5 stars almost perfect 12 July 2014
Format:Paperback
Won't speak to content as to avoid spoilers but this is a great story that set batman at odds with his own idea of Gotham.

The mask is of a reasonable build quailty and made of plastic. Only flaw with the mask is the lack of stand.

My only complaint about the set is that the included book isn't the whole saga but only the first part
