Scott Snyder is exactly what the Batman series has been missing. Scott is capable of engaging the reader by his phenomenal writing and cliff hangers at then end of each issue which leaves the audience gasping for more. While some of the issues are action packed, Scott Snyder paces the series with background history of the Dark Knight and also by introducing one of his greatest unknown rivals, The Court of Owls. Ruling Gotham from the shadows, The Court of Owls are ready to reclaim their city from the masked Bat. This story arc is captivating and ground breaking with the combination of Snyder's story and Greg Capullo's brilliant artwork. This is the way Batman was supposed to be seen and the Court of Owls is a read that is sure to not disappoint!

*Side Note* I've had the pleasure of meeting Scott Snyder (He is a frequent visitor at my local comic store) and his general knowledge and excitement about writing for such a prominent comic book figure, such as Batman, is easily reflected through his approach to the series. DC really hit the nail on the head with this one!
