Na na na na... nah.

Batman: Night of the Owls ties in with the spectacular "The Court of Owls/City of Owls" saga which is told in volumes 1 and 2 of The New 52's Batman. While the story is amazing in the Batman comics, his spinoffs' involvements are less than enjoyable.
The comics aren't poorly written, it's just that the collection compiles one or two issues from the different Batman spinoffs, and it's very hard to read considering the rest of the individual series' are not explored. We get sub-plots from the solo adventures that we can't understand. I'm sure the stories are very good, I just don't think that I should have to buy a whole graphic novel of something I don't really care for to get the whole story. Luckily, they don't affect the main owls storyline in Batman's comics.
If you want to look at the lives of Batgirl, Batwing, Robin or whoever else in Batman's world, this may be good for you. However, I prefer full stories and this collection offers beginnings without endings, endings without beginnings and anything in between.
