Honestly, kinda disappointed by this one. Instead of bringing something new to the table, it just feels like a generic Batman story. It was like the board of directors was saying "Hey, look what we just did with Green Lantern Earth One! Hooray! Oh, what? There's Batman? You go do something with him, I don't care.". It is ANOTHER reboot that retells the same old Bruce Wayne tale I kind of grown sic more

(spoiler alert)
Recognized for creating the era of adult themed comics, Batman: The Dark Knight Returns is undoubtedly one of the best graphic novels of the 80s. This is the most realistic version of the caped crusader, and realism is something I often look for in comics.
As most of you know, this action takes place in a future crime-filled Gotham, where the Dark Knight has long retired. more

Excellent book. This work of art is one of my favorite, if not my favorite, Batman stories ever told. The first two volumes showed me that Scott Snyder can handle Batman extremely well, but I was curious about how he'd give Joker a go. Turns out he made my favorite version of him. Death of the Family crosses the boundaries and explores deeply into the psychologies of The Dark Knight and The Clown more

Had a fun time reading it. The beginning is a good conclusion to the legendary Court of Owls, and it involves a major plot twist, but the rest doesn't involve anything major. Also, it features multiple artists, and while their drawings are undoubtedly good, some of the transitions feel uneasy. I give it a 8.3, but it wouldn't have gotten this high if it wasn't for the first part.

One of my favourite comic books of all time, and probably one of the greatest adventures of the caped crusader, Batman: The Court of Owls is an essential piece of the Batman storyline that reveals the tale of the organization which ruled Gotham all along. It made me question so many other comics in the series, and made them look better. The characters are very well written, the story is well paced more
