Batman Vol. 2: The City of Owls


Disappointed is what comes to mind after reading this. Actually, that feeling came in the middle of the book. Why? Well, I was very much looking forward to this Volume because I thought that it would be another Volume full of Greg Capullo artwork. He was the only reason (besides wanting to finish the story that was started in Volume 1) why I picked this up. His art, no matter what he is drawing is always kick ass and what we do get here is vintage Capullo. The story itself was pretty kick ass as well with the revelation that Bruce Wayne has a brother that he never knew about and not only does he have a brother, but he's one of the Owls that is assaulting him and Gotham City. Once the story wraps, it's a couple of different fill-in artist that is beyond horrible. The quality would be on par with someone drawing for the first time. Just atrocious and doesn't fit well with Batman. I say Rent this just for the Scott Synder / Greg Capullo story. After this, it's not worth reading. Capullo's installment gets 5 Stars out of 5. Overall the book only gets 3 Stars because of the rest of the fill-in crap.
