After taking crap
from the Court of Owls for what seems to be an eternity, Batman is
now taking the fight back to them; however, things don't go as he
planned or as readers expected. "Assault on the Court" has the
answers everyone was looking for, but the truth Scott Snyder hid
beneath is pretty disturbing. While many may have guessed who the
master orchestrator was, chances are no one saw what was coming
right after the big reveal, and that is exactly what makes this
issue so amazing: a double twist that throws everyone out of their
comfort zone in preparation for the big finale.
The story is masterfully complemented with the backup feature "The
Fall of the House of Wayne," narrated from Jarvis Pennyworth's point
of view. Anyone who thought that what they had just read was only
smoke and mirrors, will feel a chill go down their spine as they
read those last seven words. The art on both stories is impeccable.
