Snyder, S., Capullo, G., & Glapion, J. (2012). Batman volume 1: The Court of Owls. New York: DC Comics. ISBN: 978-1401235413. Hardcover: $24.99. Also available in paperback and e-book format.

Bruce Wayne (under the disguise of Batman) has dedicated his life to protecting Gotham, a city long plagued with the most devious criminals. Now he faces a new threat that may have been under his nose the entire time. Old folk tales have warnings about a Court of Owls – an old society that rules Gotham from the shadows with an assassin called The Talon. When the owl symbol begins to show up in connection to mysterious crimes, and a deadly assassin attacks Bruce Wayne, Batman restarts his investigation of the Court of Owls, a fable he thought he disproved years ago. He may have underestimated just how deep their influence runs… A mistake that just might be his undoing.

This volume compiles the first seven issues of the Batman reboot. With excellent artistry and an exciting new story, it’s the Batman you love in an all new adventure of mystery and danger.
