After nearly losing his life and limb to another Talon known as the infamous Butcher, Calvin Rose and his allies are back in Gotham and the Batman hast has started to take notice while what remains of the Court of Owls continues being nervous about the antics of this rogue Talon and his friends. They demand that the Butcher increase his efforts to find Rose and of course the Court should know better than to piss off a crazy Talon whom they feared awakening again. But this is what happens when people become paranoid, they make bad choices…Which lead to horrible deadly consquences for the innocent.

Meanwhile, our good Talon and his friends are about to plan their next heist against the court and it appears to be impossible to carry out until they devise a solid plan. Buteven when you plan, there are inferences that can hamper everything and these three interferences that Rose meets could mean the very end of his existence.

Great story and amazing art.  I’m curious to see what happens when the Talon meets the Bat and everyone knows that you can do things in Gotham good or bad without the Bat knowing about it.

Verdict

It’s a buy. It had somewhat of a slow start but the ball is rolling and the dice has been cast. The odds are definitely in your favor.

    Haven’t read this issue yet but I have really been enjoying this series. This is a really underrated series and one of the new ones from DC that I hope sticks around. Strong art and story have been consistent through. One of the few DC books I’m still reading since I was consumed by Marvel Now.
