Comic Book 2: Batman, Vol. 2: The City of Owls


Batman, Vol. 2: The City of Owls, writer Scott Snyder, penciller Greg Capullo

Rating: 6/10

Finished reading on May 4th, 2014

In The City of Owls we find out what happens from where the previous volume left off – Batman having to deal with… spoilers (continue below if you don’t mind spoilers) . As the story progresses and finds a surprising solution and the solution ends with a twist, we go a bit further away from Batman and get to know a little bit more about the family of Alfred – the Waynes’ butler.

The illustrations are cool and since Batman has  a stubble for the whole volume, you wouldn’t even notice his non-existent cheeks 🙂

In general not quite as interesting as the first volume.

Spoilers start here…

In the last volume Batman was left with a lot of bad guys on the loose and they’re all out to get important people of the city. However they’re dealt with quickly enough and we dive into a story in which a candidate for mayor – Lincoln March is actually Bruce Wayne’s brother who was shut up in an asylum. Isn’t that interesting. But there’s a twist – apparently March isn’t quite sane, as we can read about what really happened and whether or not Bruce had a brother. And then there come the story of Alfred’s family, which takes up quite a lot of space, and Batman can have a rest from fighting with bad guys.
