While I’ve been a fan of superheroes, and Batman in particular, for as long as I can remember, I didn’t really start reading comics until I was in high school and DC launched the New 52. Of the titles I subscribed to at the time, Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s Batman was easily the best of the bunch, and it started with The Court of Owls Saga, which is collected here. I absolutely loved it at the time and couldn’t wait to read each issue when they came out, especially when the other titles I was reading at the time all struggled with some degree of inconsistency as they shifted creative teams or got pulled into larger events (darn you, Avengers vs X-Men). I reread each issue multiple times, and then the whole story when it was complete; it was that good!
So now, rereading it nearly a decade later as an adult, I find myself loving it just as much, if not more than, I did back then. You get the full Batman in this story, along with fascinating new villains, stakes that feel real, and incredible artwork from Greg Capullo. One of the other great things about this is that you don’t need to be caught up on years of backstory for this to make sense, you just need a basic understanding of the Batman mythos, which a lot of people have anymore courtesy of his dominance of most forms of entertainment.
If you’ve never gotten into comics and are curious about them, or if you’ve been a fan for years and have never read this, I would definitely recommend that you pick up The Court of Owls Saga, as it is a modern classic within superhero comics.
The ONLY reason I am giving this 4 stars is that there are pretty jarring quality problems where the pages will invert for about 6 pages and you have to read it Manga style, then it reverts back to normal. Was confused and took me out of the story a little but that is it.
The actual story is a 5 star in my opinion.
