Precinct1313 Recommends: Batman – Court of Owls Unwrapped
Greetings fellow Bat-fans, and this week’s recommendation is the rather marvellous Batman: Court of Owls Unwrapped, a special hardcover edition of the Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo saga. The difference between this and the previous release is that unwrapped is a black and white pencils only edition, which really showcases the extremely talented artwork of the amazing Greg Capullo.
The Court of Owls are a cabal of some of Gotham City’s richest and most powerful families, who have ruled Gotham through subterfuge, politics and violence since the late nineteenth century. Employing teams of highly trained assassins to carry out their bidding known as ‘The Talons’.
This special edition collects issues #1 – 11 of Batman, and comes highly recommended not just because of Greg Capullo’s amazing visuals (though that is a good enough reason alone to pick this up), but also for Scott Snyder’s masterful storytelling.
