So here's the big Bat Family crossover of the year, and it's being orchestrated by Scott Snyder, so it's bound to be awesome judging from his previous and current output. :)

The first backup, in issue eight will give a sense of the terrifying scope of the Court of Owls' attack on Gotham. This really will be the first shot in a war for the soul of Gotham City," said Snyder. "And then, starting in issue nine, we'll begin a three part story called 'The Fall of the House of Wayne' that will investigate the secret history of the Court of Owls and its relationship to the Wayne family – particularly to Thomas and Martha Wayne, Bruce's parents. The story will be told from the point of view of Jarvis Pennyworth, Alfred's father, and offer some big surprises and shocks about the forces that shaped the bat-mythology as we know it. Can't wait for you all to see these stories!

"I'm also excited to be co-writing with my friend, James Tynion IV, a young writer I'm extremely excited about. Especially in the spirit of the New 52, it's a real thrill to get to give someone new and talented a chance to get his foot in the door, and James is a writer to watch and expect great things from!"

"And of course, I'm over the moon about getting to work with my good friend and AMERICAN VAMPIRE co-creator Rafael Albuquerque on the some of the very first ones!"

Covers for the story which are also very pretty,

It being a crossover that involves the Bat Family that involves Scott Snyder, I'm going to add my standard hope that Cass or Steph will make an appearance, though I'm getting a feeling that they've been put into a crowd of "Not to be used" characters at the moment, like the non-Darkseid New Gods. Still, here's me being hopeful. :)

Batman is about protecting GOtham. The Wayne's are important. Very important. But there is more to him and to Gotham than the Wayne family history

Part of me is a little annoyed that I have to pay an extra dollar for this book, but for more Snyder and Albuquerque on art, I'll take it.

By the way, on your tags, it's the "Court of Owls," not the "Council of Owls."

The Court of Owls: the alternative for the rich Gothamite of a good family who doesn't want to summon demons or fuck with architecture.

I just hope Stephanie Brown and Cass Cain are in them. I seriously don't understand DC's problem.

I read about this this morning and all I have to say is I'm pretty excited to learn more of the Court of Owls' history. I find them fascinating and intriguing. :}

I am actually excited for this. As long as the backups are enjoyable, I'll give them a shot. And I mean, I already pay a dollar more for Marvel comics I like than I do most DC ones, so I don't have an issue paying $1 more for something from Snyder. I'm really curious to see how this spins out into the other books, though. I'm not sure about Steph but I am kinda secretly hoping that since Snyder likes her, Cass will show up. It would be nice.

Do we know who the back-ups are? Because I had a dream where Devin Grayson was writing Steph-or-Cass. And either would definitely drag me back to giving my money to DC, despite the nauseating lack of Oracle.

Here's to hoping Scott writes Martha well anyway.

Snyder's been doing some great work from what I've seen, and seeing the involvement of the Wayne's Pre-Tom/Martha was cool, but I'm a little sick of implicating Bruce's parents in vast conspiracies. Let's have Alfred subtly pushing Gotham on the right tracks for a change. We all know he does anyway.

A "Bat Family crossover", I'm guessing the chances that Jason is involved or even mentioned are slim to none.

This looks like a very nice and smart use of back-up stories. Instead of having the usual unrelated stories randomly printed at the end, something in the same tone from the same creative team, expanding the story of the current foes.
