Rusty's World

Rusty’s Year in Comics 2015 | March 25, 2015

batman-the-court-of-owls_hc-cover-art

When DC launched the New 52, Batman was not one of the books I picked up. I have never been a huge Batman fan and while there have been some GREAT Batman stories, I tend to find him a little repetitive.

Later I picked up some issues during Zero Year (or whatever it was called) and wan’t impressed enough for it to catch on, despite the raves for Snyder’s run.

And I like Scott Snyder. I really liked him on Swamp Thing.

So here is The Court of Owls, which kicked off the New 52. And again, it feels a litre repetitive. Going back to Batman’s origins and rewriting little bits to fit a later story means this whole thing is based on a retcon.

But it is a relaunch so if you a re ever going to do that…

But it is quite a good read. As said, ‘Batman pushed to his limits’ has been down to death, but this is a well done version of that story.
