Presented in black and white inks from artists Greg Capullo and Jonathan Glapion, BATMAN NOIR: THE COURT OF OWLS presents Scott Snyder's now-legendary storyline in an all-new format!

Batman had heard the tales of Gotham City's Court of Owls. Meeting in the shadows and using the nocturnal bird of prey as their calling card, the members of this powerful cabal are the true rulers of Gotham.

But the Dark Knight dismissed the stories as rumors and old wives' tales. Gotham was his city.

Until now.

A brutal assassin is sinking his razor-sharp talons into the city's best and brightest, as well as its most dangerous and deadly. If the dark legends are true, his masters are more powerful predators than the Batman could ever imagine-and their nests are everywhere...

From the superstar team of writer Scott Snyder (AMERICAN VAMPIRE) and Greg Capullo (Spawn), BATMAN: COURT OF OWLS is a soaring saga of mystery and terror that kicked off one of the decade's most successful comic book runs! This stunning Absolute [W1] edition collects BATMAN #1-11, as well as character sketches, the full script and pencils to BATMAN #1 and afterword by Scott Snyder.

"This is a clever and sophisticated Batman--with a dark, edgy, and thought-provoking narrative ably abetted by Capullo's pulpish, detailed art. Readers will find it hard to put down."--PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

"A+. The hero's got personality (and is unafraid to release a quip as sharp as a Batarang), a horde of supervillains, gumption to spare and a whole host of high-tech gadgetry to suitably impress longtime fans and those new to the Dark Knight."--USA TODAY

"[Writer Scott Snyder] pulls from the oldest aspects of the Batman myth, combines it with sinister-comic elements from the series' best period, and gives the whole thing terrific forward-spin by setting up an honest-to-gosh mystery for Batman to solve."--ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

"Bruce Wayne is a badass. The end."--IGN, 9.5 Rating
