Hey guys, our buddy dweebofthedead did an awesome SPOILER FREE review of Batman #10, which is a pretty epic issue. Check it out!
Assault on the Court
Writer: Scott Snyder
Artist: Greg Capullo
Backup story: Fall of the House of Wayne
Writer: Scott Snyder,James Tynion IV
Artist: Rafael Albuquerque
Lets say you have been living under a rock for the last ten months and need a quick recap here we go: Since the relaunch we’ve seen Bruce Wayne dealing with a hidden mystery within Gotham city. He once thought that he knew everything about Gotham City but soon discovers a secret organization with massive power and networking within the heart of gotham called The Court of Owls. The court stemmed from an old nursery rhyme and when his parents were killed he believed the court had something to do with it. Young detective wayne actually started investigating the court to see if they’re existence was true, but wayne’s investigation lead towards a dead end. Soon to only find out his miscalculation would haunt him later.
Granted that was a quick breakdown and its not including all the fine details that make this batman story arc one of the best, but I hope with that it will crave your appetite to pick this up. Issues #1-9 has been an emotional rollercoaster of awesome. Snyder crafting the story and Capullo perfecting it makes this all the worthy of your pretty penny.
With that said this leads us to issue #10 “Attack on the Court” which is by far the best issue to date. Bruce brings the fight to the court once and for all, but also finding out who the evil kingpin is behind all these shenanigans. We also get a major reveal that I won’t spoil for you but HOLY CRAP BATMAN! (NOT ENOUGH CAPS) what a reveal, all I can say is it’s not what you think. I can not wait till issue #11 when all hell breaks lose and the internet finally implodes.
Lastly we get another beautiful backup story written by Snyder, Co-written by James Tynion IV and Artist Rafael Albuquerque (American Vampire). Piecing the backup with the main story really adds fun to overall experience.
