Publisher’s Blurb:

• Can the Court of Owls finally be defeated? Could Calvin have the one thing he’s been seeking his entire life: his freedom?

Reviewer’s Comments:
Calvin Rose thinks all is well in Gotham now. He thinks that with the Court of Owls defeated, he can now return to Gotham. Upon his return, he may not like what he finds.

After being defeated by a talon upon Rose’s investigation of their old headquarters, Rose is left beaten and battered until he is rescued by a man named Sebastian Clark. Clark has devoted his life to learning as much as he can about them to expose their lies. In Calvin, he finds a way to put them to rest once and for all. Rose is a bit hesitant to accept his offer but after getting to know each other a bit through a little physical horseplay, he decides to follow Mr. Clark’s guidance in a new crusade.

Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV do a great job building from the zero issue and the previous issues of Batman. The writers know who this character is, and are using him to expand upon the Court of Owls. It is quite an intriguing idea with an interesting character to boot.

Guillem March cannot do wrong with any issue. His art is beautiful, and he draws the quiet and action moments quite beautifully. While I still miss him from his work on Catwoman, I am glad he is on this as a follow-up book.

There is nothing wrong with this issue…. It simply is some of the best work these three men have put out in their careers.
