Batman (vol. 2): The City of Owls – Scott Snyder

Ok, I admit, I broke down and read this and–surprise!–it wasn’t very good. The crime fighting Batman must take on a secret society that, for no reason, decides to blow their cover and come out of the woodwork in order to take down Batman. There are two good stories in the collection: one about Mr. Freeze, that really showed his insanity and had almost nothing to do with the Court of Owls nonsense, and the other, weaker, story (although I was very glad it dealt with issues like poverty and homophobia) was about a civilian who stumbles onto Batman and her reaction to it.

    Is this real?! Snyder certainly doesn’t need my approval as he is doing super well for himself. Appreciate the indulgence and, as everyone knows, not every work can appeal to everyone. Thanks for the comment and well wishes; best of luck with your continuing work.
