    A new series spinning out of “Night of the Owls”!

    After many years on the run, Calvin Rose returns to Gotham City to investigate the fallout from “Night of the Owls”!

    After seven years on the run the Talon is back in Gotham! He must discover the truth about the fallout of “Night of the Owls”, a powerful "show of force" from the Court of Owls on Gotham Officials.

The war on the court begins….

    The Psychotic Perspective: Talon #1 0

    The Gotham TrapThe zero issue of Talon was a solid story, but it left me with one main concern. Can a series about an escape artist really go the distance? In last month’s issue alone, Calvin made four masterful escapes. That may be fun for a time, but how long can a series continue to produce death traps for its hero?

    James Tynion IV : Escape from Scott Snyder 0

    I must admit i was pretty skeptical when DC announced an all new series based on Talons, the unstoppable assassins we discovered in Scott Snyder's Court of Owls.

    Talon was a book that immediatly perked my interest when it was announced during the last wave of new 52 (we still call it that?) of books, mostly because the Owls are a fascinating foe and took on Batman and his extended family and nearly won!
