it was amazing

It is a measure of both the dark and twisted nature of Batman, and the success of DC's New 52 reboots, that seeing Battie fighting alongside Joker in the opening pages of The Court Of Owls raises not so much as an eyebrow.
And so Owls continues.
Curveballs are thrown with gay abandon, rules and convention go out the window (both in terms of the story and the telling of it - the pages when Bat is in the maze are probably the best I've ever experienced), and everything we and Bruce knew is called into question.
Batman has been through a few low ebbs over the years, and liberties have been taken with reader loyalty at times, but in Court Of Owls the Caped Crusader is back to his best.
With artwork matching the dark, compelling story, Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo and Jonathan Glapion have shown there's life in the old Bat yet.
