    Though it's hardly an event, fans of psychological depth, one-shot story-telling, or Bennett's previous work should definitely pick this one up. Read Full Review

    Taken on its own, Talon #15 is a compelling chronicle of the life of a Talon, but those who were looking to continue the story of Calvin Rose may be a bit let down. While it doesnt rise above to do anything greater than it set out to do, it remains compelling from start to finish thanks to Marguerite Bennetts writing and Jorge Lucas art. While most of Bennetts work so far has been in one shot issues, shes shown tremendous promise and has a strong and distinct voice that, while still rough around the edges, is certainly appealing and shines strong throughout this issue. One cant help but wonder what she could achieve if she were given more room to stretch her legs in an ongoing as opposed to one and done aissues. Regardless, Bennett is proving to be a solid writer who, with more room to grow, has a lot to offer the DC Universe. Read Full Review

    Talon #15 is a bit of a conundrum.  It is a really good issue for Talon fans, but it gives them nothing new.  It would have been a good primer issue to get new fans up to speed, but unfortunately it's too little too late.  If you want someone to jump into the series, this is good starting point.

    Let's not beat around the bush, this was an inventory issue, through and through. But just because it was an inventory issue, which by nature are pretty detached from any larger story, doesn't mean it was necessarily bad. If you like the Court of Owls, and are interested in their different Talons, then you'll enjoy this issue. The problem lays in the fact that we get to know this Talon is a bit crazy, but there isn't really a whole lot of reason given as to why he's so crazy. It was a good issue, just could have been a bit better. Read Full Review

    It's okay, but definitely not something I would rush out to pick up. If you read Calvin's upbringing in issue #0 or William Cobb's story from the pages of Nightwing or the trials of the labyrinth in issues #5 & #6 of Batman then this story will feel all too familiar. Its told well enough and the artwork is decent, but it offers nothing we haven't seen before. Read Full Review
