  1. I really enjoyed the Night of Owls. Will try this to see if there’s enough there for a series of this!

  2. So, so similar to when Michael Lane escaped the Black Glove, became a hero, and got an “Azrael” series a few months after “Batman R.I.P.” was over…

  3. Anyone else excited that, for the first time in the new 52, DC is creating a new concept, instead of just bringing back an old one? PROGRESS!

  4. I’m really looking forward to this too.

    Here is a preview…..

  5. For some reason this title feels like Azrael to me. Maybe it’s just cause March was artist for that book as well.

    But thanks to Batman #0 and Tynion’s amazing back up story I’ve really started to get excited for this story.

  6. Is this the same talon that escaped in Batman: The Dark Knight issue 9?

  7. Not sure if it’s a good idea to put a new character on a new title without having Batman somewhere on the cover, but good on DC for sticking to their guns on the zero issues

  8. This is the #0 issue I’ve been waiting for, the preview got me hooked.

  9. Nice art on the preview pages. Somehow different than March’s work on Catwoman (Coloring, maybe?).

    I’m in for a few issues, at least.

  10. Not feeling it. An interesting one-shot, but this will be the only issue I pick up. Felt like the set-up to half a dozen different action movies that have been done before.

    • I agree. It was a good story, but I don’t think it will make an interesting series. Semi-mundane set up, but who really knows? Maybe it’ll end up being amazing…

  11. My local comic shop owner suggested this to me as a palate-cleanser after I gagged down Teen Titans #0. I expected to hate it, but was surprised to find that I actually enjoyed it. I may even pick up a few more issues, just to see how it goes.

  12. I debated about picking this up and I’m glad I did, was pleasantly surprised, will continue with it to see where it goes

  13. I thought this was a very cool issue. It will be interesting to see him and Batman eventually cross paths.
