    Batman Volume 1: The Court of Owls by Scott Snyder (ryvre)
    ryvre: Batman: the Black Mirror immediately precedes Batman Vol. 1: The Court of Owls. Sure, the entire universe was relaunched between the two, but they still follow nicely.

One of my favorite tumblr's DC Women Kicking Ass noted this as one of their top books of the year so I decided to give it a shot. I'm so glad I did. It gives you a great look at Dick and Gordon and how they handle Dick's time as Batman after Bruce's return. The story line was a great creepy mystery totally solidifying the idea of Batman as Detective. The art style was phenominal for the creepy vibe the storyline was putting out. All in all I was very happy. ( )

It’s been a long time since I’ve read Hush or The Long Halloween, so the following statement might be incredibly present-biased:

Scott Snyder writes Batman better than anyone else.

I know people have issues with how dark Snyder likes to go, but that’s exactly what I love about it. Last I checked, Batman was dark. Gotham is dark. It’s supposed to be. If it’s light-hearted Batman you’re looking for, then I suggest looking up Adam West and Burt Ward. Otherwise, Snyder is definitely the way to go.

There are a decent handful of villains that Batman (Dick Grayson) has to chase after over the course of The Black Mirror - even the Joker shows up with a short cameo. It’s James Gordon, Jr., however, that steals the show. A psychopathic serial killer to beat all psychopathic serial killers, James Jr. is creepy to the bone. (No pun intended.)

I refuse to better-or-worse The Black Mirror with The Court of Owls, but they are both on my top 5 graphic novel shortlist.

Scott Snyder, my marriage proposal is still waiting an answer. ( )
