We all know the stereotypical opinions about sequels: they have to be bigger in every aspect. More thrills, more Bad guys, higher stakes, more bang.
Does Anyone else think, that you can say all these things about Night of the Owls? Exspecially if you compare it to Court of Owls(issues 1-6)?
In the first part the tension was perfectly build in the course of the first 5 issues and unleashed in the epic throwdown between Bruce and the Talon in the maze and the model of Gotham. It was a awesome showdown( even if it wasnt supposed to be one). We also had great issues with the creppy issue 3 and the genius issue 5 ( simply one of the top 5 issues since last september).
But since issue 7 it feels a Little meh. ï¿½ For me Night of the Owls has the feell of a typical sequel. A Typical mediocre sequel. Now we have more Talons, we use the same locations, we have more bang( BAT Armor) and the stakes are higher.
I dont think its bad. I just feel, that the jump from issue 6 to 7 hurt the build up of the tension. It just doenst feel like one single story and more like two.ï
Has anyone else the same feeling?
