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

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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really like what DC are doing with the "mask" box sets (see "Death of the Family" with the excellent Joker mask). I was pretty hyped when this come up for ordering and had heard great things about what Scott Synder was doing on the New 52 run of Batman.

The book is great and the storyline and artwork is some of the strongest in a long time. However, you will need to buy volume 2 to see the conclusion of the story arc, so be warned. That said, as a stand alone piece its a great start for the New 52 and Synder clearly understands the characters and motivations.

The comic book is great and worthy of a 5 star review. However, the mask slips the rating to 4 for me. For the money you are paying you get a very flimsy mask that distorts when worn. I was hoping for slightly thicker plastic so that it holds it's shape but its so thin it just warps at an kind of pressure. Considering the simplicity of the design, it was quite disappointing but at least there was no paint application for them to mess up (also see the "Joker" mask).

All in all a great read and a good set. I'd recommend waiting to see if the price drops before purchasing but overall a nice and fun "collectors" edition.

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.

Well, I can't say I expected anything less than amazing when purchasing anything from the Court of Owls, the trade is obviously amazing, but I already knew that, as I own it in many different forms. Now on to the part everyone actually WANTED this for. The court of owls mask: The mask is a plastic mask, but not of the thin flimsy kind that they make children Halloween masks out of. The mask is of such a good quality, it does LOOK as if it's made out of porcelain, but it's just high-quality plastic.
The best feature of this mask (in my opinion), is the padded areas around the eyebrow section, so the mask rests on padded areas around your brows, instead of having the plastic digging in around the eyes. The other benefit to that, is the fact that it draws the mask away from your face, giving your eyes a little shroud of darkness, making it all the more creepy!

Format: Paperback
Collecting the first 6 months or so of Scott Snyder's run on Batman, this book is a great starting point for anyone who wants to start reading Batman but aren't sure which book to buy. With 'The New 52', DC comics reset all of their issue numbers to 1, and no real prior knowledge of the character is needed.

The story is excellent, but be warned - it continues in Batman: City of Owls, so if you want to know how this story arc ends you're going to need to buy that book too.

As for the mask in this edition, it looks great but is slightly thinner once you get your hands on it than it looks through the packaging.

I'd highly recommend this book for fans of Batman (new or old), though this edition with the mask isn't strictly necessary; the paperback or hardcover would do the job just as well.
