    Batman: The Black Mirror 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.

Pros
Brilliantly tense physiological battle
The court's sense of mystery and omnipresent powers
Batman is dark and angry but not an utterly bitter grouch
Batman kicking ass
Artwork pops with life and yet manages to also conveys sense of darkness and foreboding
Themes of family, grief, and most of all, obsession
Cons
Almost no supporting character gets to play a large role (particularly the three robin characters)
Huge cliffhanger
9/10 Great. A fabulous first half the revels in the best aspects of Batman. ( )

As a newcomer to graphic novels, I did not know what to expect. But through Snyder's story, and Capullo and his teams' engaging imagery, we follow Batman in a dark and moody tale through Gotham's dirty streets. There is no end to the amount of enemies and victims, and a reader can only become bloodthirsty for the next chapter in the story. ( )

Vastly better read than I was expecting; enough of a good story to immediately pick up and read Volume 2 in the same evening/sitting. ( )

Scott Snyder has done an excellent job of capturing the greatness of the Batman story and resetting it with an exciting new direction ahead. Of all the Batman tales I've read, short of Frank Miller, this is the first time I was genuinely anticipating reading the 2nd volume, and am on my forward after that. ( )
