As evil spreads across Gotham City, Batman’s allies, including Red Robin, Batwing, Robin, Batgirl, the Birds of Prey, Nightwing and even Catwoman find themselves in a battle coming from all sides. The Court of Owls have shown their hand, and it’s up to the collective effort of these heroes, some more unlikely than others, in this sprawling tale of corruption and violence.
This is a pretty cool anathology. It’s really good to read once you’ve finished both The Court of the Owls and The City of Owls. It’s the different tales of all of Batman’s allies that Alfred has contacted. Why I really liked it is because I got some insight into the background of Nightwing and a few of the talons before they were made into assassins. It also showed my favorite outlaw: Red Hood along with Starfire and her crazy-ass self.
Be prepared for a bunch of different fantastic artists and reading about different histories and what is happening in different parts of Gotham on the night the Owls tried to take over.
The only problem was there were a few repeats from The City of Owls. Other than that it was too good to complain about!
