    Talon #11 was ultimately another fun issue of the series, that offered up great art, entertaining fights, and a comparison/contrast between pro and antagonist, which I didn't see coming, but nevertheless found very interesting. To go along with everything just mentioned, I commend this issue for playing along well with the shared universe and setting up Bane's place in Forever Evil, something pretty much no other normal book has done. The only thing that took away from an otherwise great issue, was the all too quick disposing of Sebastian, whose turn was such a large part of the first arc's larger hook. Despite that one complaint, Talon's eleventh issue was still a very fun conclusion to the Bane arc. Read Full Review

    Tynion delivered an action-packed finale to Talon's time on Santa Prisca, but Szymon Kudranski's static style didn't give those action scenes the energy they deserved. Read Full Review

    Much like Batwing, this is one of those Bat family titles that really doesn't serve a whole lot of purpose other than we get an extra Batman comic in our stack every month. I'm just curious to see if the series will even be good at all without constant guest stars and lead-ins and crossovers. Or if the creative team is brave enough to try. Read Full Review

    While Ive always felt that a good story is the most important thing in a book, this shows how much bad art can drag down good writing. Tynion gave us another great chapter in Calvin and Caseys Saga, throwing in a few special guest appearances and a great ending that definitely makes this issue worth checking out. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Sep 2, 2013

    Talon was one of my favorite New 52 titles from the moment it was introduced. Unfortunately, the last few issues have not been good. If things don't improve quick I'm afraid it will be canceled which is a real shame. I wish I could recomend this issue, but right now I can't recommend the series in general. Read Full Review
