Batman New 52 Vol 1: The Court of Owls by Scott Snyder – Comics Review [Bane of Kings]

Court of Owls Vol 1

Bane of Kings reviews the first seven issues of Scott Snyder’s Court of Owls storyline, published by DC Comics, and with artwork from Greg Capullo.

“Wow. A dark, gritty and awesome look into Batman that serves as not only a great starting point for new readers, but also Snyder manages to offer something fresh for the older ones. Some superb stuff here – Snyder’s New 52 run is one of the best.” ~The Founding Fields

Batman: The Man Who Laughs by Ed Brubaker – Comics Review [Bane of Kings]


Bane of Kings continues his reviewing of comic books/graphic novels with The Man Who Laughs by Ed Brubaker, a collection of two stories set in the Batman universe, published of course by DC comics, illustrated by Doug Mahnke and Patrick Zircher.

“The Man Who Laughs is really a comic of two halves, and both separate stories manage to be entertaining,  but whilst the first story that knocks it out of the park, the second suffers. ~The Founding Fields
