I love what Snyder has been doing, I'm very excited to see where things go between Batman and the Owls.

The only thing I really have against the court of owls is that it is really leaning too hard onto what was usually Ra's turf of being an ancient enemy consisting of a legion of shadow murderers. While the court scores points for its freshness, it does loose some on lack of originality. (For me at least)

Snyder's always a great interviews, seems like such a likeable and approachable guy. Could totally see him and I talkin about Batman/Swamp Thing/Skinner Sweet while having drinks.

I was talking to him the other day and he said you're the last person he'd be having a drink with. Even if you pay the tab.

@DocFatalis: Damn, guess he was a little more salty about our twitter debate on which Elvis song was the best than I thought.

While I can't really say that the introduction of a secret society is really an 'original' idea in comics. Let alone basing them off the animal that is the hero's natural enemy. That's not at all important as how he's used it. What could have been terribly cliche. He has written to fine effect in challenging the hero. I don't think he hates Batman. Putting him through hell will only make the victory feel more satisfying than winning over someone who posed no real challenge.

His work on the series is another example in how I'd love to see what a writer could do if he was give more than a few short months to work on a comic and instead was given several years. I bet if Snyder was given five years to work on Batman that he could weave together some stories that would be really spectacular.

Though, I would still like to see Cassie back. Seriously, DC. What is your issue against her?

Not to focus on the superficial, but it's been a while since you've done much on camera work, Sara. The hair looks nice. I look forward to watching more of the interviews from you and Tony.

I so wanted him to sign my copy of Batman: Gates of Gotham, but due to schedule change I was SFL to try and get him to do so. Ah well, maybe next time. He still rocked it at the Horror in Comics Panel IMHO. Go Snyder!

very approachable, passionate about his work and he knows what he is doing with batman as a character.

I feel he has made batman a new fresh character and I like that.

Between the Black Mirror, Gates of Gotham and the past seven issues of Batman, I have absolutely loved Snyder's work. Excited to consume more!
