The Court of Owls Vol. 1:
The super team of writer #ScottSnyder (American Vampire, #BatmanTheBlackMirror) and #GregCapullo (#Spawn) proudly present #BatmanTheCourtofOwls (collecting #Batman 1-7) - a soaring saga of mystery and terror!
"Beware the Court of Owls, that watches all the time..."
Batman had heard the tales of #GothamCity's #CourtofOwls. Meeting in the shadows and using the nocturnal bird of prey as their calling card, the members of this powerful cabal are the true rulers of Gotham. But the #DarkKnight dismissed the stories as tumors and old wives' tales.
A brutal assassin is sinking his razor-sharp talons into the city's best and brightest, as well as its most dangerous and deadly. If the dark legends are true, his masters are more powerful predators than the Batman could ever imagine - and their nests are everywhere...
The City of Owls Vol. 2:
A critical and commercial smash hit, #BatmanTheCityofOwls (collects Batman 8-12 and #BatmanAnnual 1) counties the instant-classic saga of the Dark Knight's battle with Gotham City's oldest and darkest forces from the #1 New York Times best-selling creative team of writer #ScottSnyder (American Vampire) and artist #GregCapullo (#Spawn), plus an array of talented guest contributors.
for over a century, the Court of Owls has ruled Gotham City in secret- their reach inescapable,their power unstoppable.
Until they battled the #Batman.
Gotham's vigilante protector managed to escape the claws of the Court with his mind and body barely intact. The #DarkKnight managed to win the battle with his deadly new aggressors, but certainly not the war. Batman was just the first part of the Court's conquest. Now they have their sights set on something much bigger: #GothamCity.
These villains will threaten all Batman holds dear: His secret identity. His home. His headquarters. His beliefs about both friends and his enemies. With the Court's deadly foot soldiers, the #Talons, out to destroy him, the Dark Knight and his allies must wage an all-out war for survival against the most dangerous predators he has never encountered.
