The Court of Owls

Beware The Court of Owls,
that watches all the time,
ruling Gotham from a shadowed perch,
behind granite and lime.
They watch you at your hearth,
they watch you in your bed,
speak not a whispered word of them,
or they'll send the Talon for your head.

The Court of Owls was a cool invention of Scott Snyder during his run as Batman writer. They are a shadowy cabal of upper class Gothamites who, for centuries, have steered the city's course in secret while wearing owl masks. The above nursery rhyme refers to their ninja-esque assassin, the Talon.

  1. Wonderfully cool Barks, I need to find out more about the shadowy characters.

    1. I do think they just throw a lot of stuff at a wall and see what sticks.

  2. Those masks have great potential for a Night Raven Conversion.
