A New York Times #1 Bestseller

For over a century, the Court of Owls has ruled Gotham City in secret - their reach inescapable, their power unstoppable.

Until they battled the Batman.

Gotham's vigilante protector managed to escape the talons of the Court with his mind and body barely intact. The Dark Knight managed to win the battle with his deadly new aggresors, but certainly not the war. Batman was just the first part of their conquest. Now they have their sights set on something much bigger: Gotham City.

A critical and commercial smash, BATMAN: THE CITY OF OWLS (collecting BATMAN 8-12 and BATMAN ANUAL #1) continues the instant-classic saga of the Dark Knight's battle with Gotham City's oldest and darkest forces from the #1 New York Times best-selling creative team of writer Scott Snyder (AMERICAN VAMPIRE) and artist Greg Capullo (Spawn), plus an array of talented guest contributors

   An awesome conclusion to the story line
The City of Owls is the 2nd part of the story. The first one is called The Court of Owls. It is gripping, the writing is excellent, the imagery is beautiful, and you get some awesome background stories to the characters, with some twists that are as great as the ones in the 1st volume. The Previously page at the beginning of the Graphic Novel gives a summary of what happened in Vol 1 and is a good primer if you haven't read the first two volumes. I sat through the book to the end and it was great. The City of Owls and The Court of Owls are both excellent. They are worth it. The first volume introduces the story nicely. The whole story line is very recommended. Enjoy
   Don't worry Batman, the villian will do all the work for you.
I was not happy with the end of the Court of Owls. Batman is on the ropes, Gotham has fallen, and a one trick pony. The first volume was incredible. One of my favorites is the Batman arcs. The introduction of a new set of lore is an amazing achievement for a character that has been well developed over the years. Everything was tied up in a neat bow quickly and easily.
   If you like book 1 you'll definitely want to read the conclusion to this story!
The new Batman series has a great storyline. The defeating of the Owls is what I love the most about them. Batman is back. Excellent artwork and a good book. It is definitely recommended for a batman fan.
The art is the best part of the book. Capullo is great at drawing. The story continues from the beginning. The story is interesting. It's taking me a bit to get used to the style of writing. After a while, I like to read again. I don't know if this will be enjoyable a second or third time.
   Snyder brought me into batman
When the New 52 hit, I got into DC because of the restart of many of the characters. Batman has a rich story and beautiful art. This is a book that you must read along with the first volume of the court of the owls.
   One of my favorite stories
The Court of Owls is my second favorite story. I was left on the edge of my seat the whole time.
   Batman at his best
Batman is fighting a bunch of owls in the book. His usual antics involve fighting humans. It was interesting to read.
   Batman comic
Enjoyed the books but was unhappy with the way it arrived. The corners and edges of pages are bent. Wanted to keep them in pristine condition. Volume 1 and 2 came that way.
   The End of the Owls... Or is it?
What a great wrap up. The Owls are a new addition to Batman's rogues gallery though they are less immediate than the Illuminati. There was still room for twists and turns in a volume that was supposed to wrap up a brand new Batman tale. The story wrapped up with Bruce and Dick. Night of the Owls is a bit of waste and is confusing and can be found in half of the collected volume.
   A must own.
The city of owls is a must read for Batman fans. You are missing out on some twists and turns by not reading this.
