Batman Noir The Court Of Owls



The now-legendary BATMAN VOL. 1: THE COURT OF OWLS graphic novel is presented here in DC's Noir format: without color and featuring the incredible pencils of illustrator Greg Capullo and inkwork of Jonathan Glapion!

After a series of brutal murders rocks Gotham City, Batman begins to realize that perhaps these crimes go far deeper than appearances suggest. As the Caped Crusader begins to unravel this deadly mystery, he discovers a conspiracy going back to his youth and beyond to the origins of the city he's sworn to protect. Could the Court of Owls, once thought to be nothing more than an urban legend, be behind the crime and corruption? Or is Bruce Wayne losing his grip on sanity and falling prey to the pressures of his war on crime?

Collects issues #1-7 of BATMAN, as well as bonus material for the Absolute edition!

Praise for Batman Noir The Court Of Owls

"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 "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 "[Writer Scott Snyder] pulls from the oldest aspects of the Batman myth, combines it with sinister-comic elements from the series' best period, and gives the whole thing terrific forward-spin by setting up an honest-to-gosh mystery for Batman to solve."--ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY "Bruce Wayne is a badass. The end."--IGN, 9.5 Rating
