    I feel like they might die from the final battle even if Bruce doesn't personally end their lives. Like Ra's Al Ghul, I almost can't picture them just being thrown in jail.

    To me this was progressive issue not a filler. If you skipped issue 9 and read issue 10 how would you about Bruce getting out of the cave . And the letter mr . March gave him. His name should been mister may

    Kind of a waste of time. I was worried Snyder would fall into the same trap as Black Mirror (amazing setup, lame ending)...and he did.

    And yes, I know there are still 2 issues to go but as much as night of the owls was hyped, only for this to happen, I can safely say the ending is and will continue to be lame. All my opinion, of course.

    Oh, and Batman was about to be torn apart but was saved by bats...really? Those little guys distracted these almost-zombies who can break down steel doors? Really?

    I'll stick it out until the conclusion, just so the opening story of 'Batman' is complete in my longbox, but then I'm out. Sad day when Detective by Daniel was a better read.


    Edit: Capullo still killing it on art.

    I prefered the backup story, first time that I've seen Alfred's father and his relationship with the Waynes.

    My biggest concern here is that I hope the Court of Owls are not connected to the death of Bruce's parents.

    Snyder has said he's not touching that.

    I agree with others that this issue was a bit of a disappointment. Not bad but not the usual standard of awesomeness. I hope the final two issues are a really strong finale because the arc has been built up way too well to just have a meh ending. **** needs to GO DOWN in #10 and 11.

    I also agree with others that the backup was a bit more interesting than the main feature. Capullo and Albuquerque complement each other really well and make a sick team. I thought it was cute that little Bruce plays with a toy that looks just like a Batmobile...you can see where he gets his inspiration from.

    I liked that bit as well, it also seemed to me that the action figure may have been Alan Scott.

    Well the story isn't over yet dude. Of course...I kind of agree. The fighting is cool, but then the rest of the book is meh. These 20 page issues really need to go. I'm sick of getting a piece of a larger story. It's all for the trades. BAH!

    I thought the issue was merely okay compared to the last issue. I liked the backup a lot better than it.
    Characters come and go, revamped and revisited. But as long as you enjoyed them, remember them and continue to appreciate them, then that character, your hero or heroine, will always exist.

    And the reviews mean...what, exactly?

    If you really think about it, the only difference between a professional reviewer and us is the fact that they get paid to do what we do on this message board for free.
