Issue #9 was okay, kind of boring and the art was a little lackluster for me and definitely wasn't Capullo's best Batman art, it just kind of felt rushed to me. The story was okay, but personally......I'm kind of getting tired of the Owl's, but it's been a pretty enjoyable way to tell the story of Batman in the new DC universe and I'm enjoying it as a whole. I hope we can move the story along after the Owls storyline, I'd like to see some classic rouges in the core Batman title, I feel like most of them have been used in Detective Comics, which has been great, but I'd like to see Capullo draw some classic characters before his time on the book is up.
Snyder's been doing a good job with writing the self titled Batman book, I hope he sticks around for a while and really leaves his mark on the series. It seems like nobody sticks around for very long and creative teams change every few months, so seeing Snyder and Capullo stick around on Batman would make me happy.
