Not to me. Looking forward to the new Talon series. I thought it was well done though it did start to drag a bit but kicked right back up at the end. So, nice work. But honestly, is there some authority we need to alert? I had no idea people were being forced to read about them.
I enjoyed the Court of the Owls a lot, personally. Having said that, this new title isn't about the Court, it's about one guy who had a past relationship with them. I'm more than willing to give it a shot, especially given the creative team involved. I find it so irritating when people have already judged something they haven't seen yet.

I've thoroughly enjoyed the Court. If I'm not mistaken however, it's not a series solely about the Court. It's about someone that essentially escaped from the Court and is looking for redemption in some form. I think it's way too early to make an educated decision on what this series is going to be.
That said, the creative team alone is worth checking out Talon. Not to mention that I loved the Court and still can't get enough of it.
Sword Of Sorcery i might pick up if i wanna read something fantasy related but Phantom stranger would of been a no brainer due to Raven showing up in issue one sadly the writer involved is making me worry that the title itself will fail hard
They outstayed their welcome more than 5 months ago.
Jean Grey : What makes you such a bitch, Emma?
Emma Frost : Breeding, darling. Top class breeding.
The court not only inspired me to drop Batman, but all the bat family titles as well, as nonsensical as that sounds. The arc itself just turned me off batman as a character I have an interest in following.
In my opinion is implied in every post. Please make an effort to remember that.
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.
They were never interesting to begin with. Even Talon just looks like a cheap Azrael knockoff.
I enjoyed it quite a bit, but I didn't go out and search for every tie in issue across the Bat titles. The core story in Batman, IMO, was pretty solid for the most part. I do, however, hope the "connection" to the Wayne family turns out to be incorrect. I tend to not like things like that being thrown into stories. I think the story could have been wrapped up in one less issue for sure, but I enjoyed it well enough. Ready to see where Batman goes next.
As for the Talon series, I'll hold off and see what other posters and review articles have to say before checking it out.

Writers before artists.
Artists before concepts.
Concepts before characters.
For me, the only thing that was wrong with the court of owls was the crossover. Other than that it was a fun story to begin with for the New 52 Batman.
