Batman #7 reaches a powerhouse conclusion to the Court of Owls story arc and sets the dramatic stage for the next phase of the war between Bat and Owl. Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo really have made this title Batman beyond. This book so much more than a superhero book. It feels like a psychedelic offering from Vertigo.
After barely escaping with his sanity and life, Bruce unlocks the shadowy society’s most secret weapon and it shatters the foundation of everything he knows and we love about his greatest ally.
Greg Capullo and Jonathan Glapion deliver impact with every panel. From the horrific imagery of predator devouring prey to represent the real battle to the ragged Batman struggling to get to safety to the simple but effectively creepy owl masks, these artists making you sense every chill and shock Bruce encounters.
Batman has been to a literal hell and back. The Court of Owls is just getting started. One of Bruce’s strongest bonds has been shattered and now the Talons are coming to rip apart something else Bruce holds sacred.
