At last, it’s here: the exciting conclusion of “The Court of Owls” saga!

It’s Batman versus Owlman in this high-flying finale, and the Dark Knight’s unnatural predator has a few more tricks up his gauntlet to ensure the defamation of the Wayne family name –– and perhaps Batman’s own sanity –– so that he might claim Gotham City for his own.

With Batman #11, the Snyder/Capullo creative team has put the capstone on a truly monumental story arc, one of the most engaging and twisted tales not only in the history of Batman comics, but all comics history. “The Court of Owls” story also gives all those cynical readers skeptical of DC’s “New 52” an opportunity to fully embrace the potential that the relaunch possesses. From Capullo’s strangely calming cover subtly foreshadowing a ritual cleansing by fire to a heartfelt six-page dialogue between Bruce and Dick, we gain a fuller understanding of this 11-issue arc, and see in Bruce Wayne a solid hope and firm resolve for a better Gotham City, both as the Caped Crusader and the billionaire playboy.

An issue of conclusions, Snyder & James Tynion IV’s “The Fall of the House of Wayne” also resolves the story of Jarvis Pennyworth, bringing further truths to light through the evocative illustrations of Rafael Albuquerque.
