  1. The description doesn’t sound like it has anything to do with Night of the Owls.

  2. Dreadfully evil cover!! Looks cool!!


  3. Remember when this was one of the most pulled books?

    • Hey, I’m reading the Night of the Owls issue then I stop pulling it… It’s just not getting anywhere and drags and I could spend my 3.99$ on something I’ll actually enjoy reading!

  4. Picked this up just for night of the owls.. Not really that interesting an issue, but damn the talons look cool. The two face backup story was so confusingly executed that I don’t think I could have figured out what was going on even if it hadn’t been completely pitch black the whole time

  5. Tony Daniel draws the best batman IMHO.
    Hate the back up to this. would rather have my dollar back and pay 2.99.

  6. The back-up was just plain terrible. I dropped this an issue ago, but picked this one up for NOTO. I enjoyed tale here…worth the $2.99 for it. But yeah, like TheRealVenom…I want my dollar back!

  7. I like Tony Daniel’s art and I think the run on Detective so far has been good. Standing next to the legendary performance that Snyder/Capullo are putting on in Batman makes it look worse than it is.

    All that aside, the Night of the Owls derailed this. This issue was not good. Didn’t like it outside of the Artwork.

  8. The backup was better than the main story.

  9. Please check my mini-review of Detective Comics #9 here: (Good Issue!)

    Comments and feedback are always welcome!

  10. The Two-Face back up story was really so dis-intresting to me that it really just flipped through it and that was that. As for the main story with Dr. Arkham and Black Mask and the prisoners escaping, I thought this was confusing and very sparatic in the story telling or it could have been the way the panels were not flowing. The Talons were just so much weaker and easier to stop here in comparison to the first Talon the Batman nearly died from. Just not so good overall for this issue.
