kartron's Batman #3 - The Thirteenth Hour review

Avatar image for kartron


  • This series I think is one of the best of New 52. With Scott Snyder's story getting better with every issue.
  • Batman is on the hunt and hunts down different smuggling gangs of Gotham to know who the mystery "owl" man is and why did he try to kill him two days ago.
  • When Bruce asks, Alfred says "Owls are Natural predators of Bats.."..that is a heavy statement.. from that point on, butterflies in my stomach!!!....
  • Batman goes ahead with the investigation and discovers more about "Court of Owls" .. and what a revelation that is at this point!
  • The twist at the end truly proves that owls come down heavy on Bats... All the while I was thinking that the Bat is hunting down the owl but then there comes a shock...
  • Capullo's art: Awesome!!. Better than first and second issues.. I am tired trying to find words to describe the art coming out in this series. No words.
  • Batman's fans will be overwhelmed
  • Value for money, Art, Story, twists in between & at the end: 200%. Pick up this issue. Nothing to disappoint. That's my challenge!!!

In my opinion, Scott Snyder was exactly what Batman needed.  We see Snyder delve deeper into not only Gotham's past, but Alan Wayne's as well. Snyder e...

    Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo have been giving a really good Batman story for the past two issues. Does this creative team keep up the pace while adding onto this complex story?  THE GOOD: I like the art. It gives Gotham and Batman a feeling that they should have. It feels different from other books by DC and that is something that should be present in a Batman book. The story is also another really great aspect of this book so far. In this issue we have Batman investigating how the assassin got...
