Review: Batman #3


The Court of Owls has taken roost within Gotham, and neither Bruce Wayne nor the Batman will ever be the same!

Scott Snyder conjures up an eerie tale of hidden secrets and a haunted past. A tale that will send shivers of excitement down your spine as glimpses of Gotham's past emerge before you, as her future lies in a hospital bed. But is the vicious stalker of Bruce Wayne truly linked to the ancient nursery rhyme that falls from the lips of Gotham's denizens? Or is it just coincidence that the Wayne family patriarch, Alan, was haunted by a fear of owls as well?

This book is a superb amalgam of Gotham history, tight action sequences and a mystery that will change the face of Gotham forever. Snyder has created a book that surpasses all previous Bat tales, one that envelopes the reader into his dark story from page one, and won't let go until the shocking end! It is a thrill ride of anticipation! An unnerving, smart look into how much damage a relentless, cerebral killer can do to the life of Bruce Wayne. 

Combined with the spectacular artistic talent of Greg Capullo, Snyder has crafted a book that should perch itself atop your pull list each and every month! Gone are the days of mediocre Batman tales, this is the time to become a fan again!
