I enjoyed this collection and the arc of the Court of Owls. Though it seems a bit silly in retrospect - and I'm still not sure how to feel about the Grayson revelation - it was a compelling read.

I loved everything about it. The fights, the monologues. I really liked the text in this one. Also we get a tragic but also so intetesting story about Mr. Freeze. The twist was well done. I loved this Volume!!!

I really enjoyed The City of the Owls plot line. Thought it was well crafted and action packed. Even if it did end a little abruptly.

But my favourite part of this volume by far was the Harper Row short at the end. I think she's a fantastic, complex character - she's handy, she's loyal, she has a unique style. I think she is a fabulous new addition to the Bat-family. Most of her story was drawn by Becky Cloonan, who's style fit perfectly (think Killjoys). If Cloonan could draw her all the time that would be fabulous.

Would have been a 5 but issue 12 was hot garbage in every way possible.
