Hopefully by now you've read the amazing and insane BATMAN #5 by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo. While facing the Court of Owls, Batman was put through the ringer and the issue ended with things not looking too great for the Caped Crusader.
Today we are proud to reveal an exclusive first look at the cover to BATMAN #9 by Greg Capullo.
Look at that image carefully. What does it remind you of? If you haven't figured it out or looked down below, here are some words from Mr. Snyder.
First of all, huge thanks to Comic Vine - great site, great people. As for the cover, this is the big one, the issue in BATMAN that parallels the Night of the Owls crossover event. I can't say too much about it, but I can say that for a long time you've seen Bruce on the defensive, with the Court making its (deadly) case. Well, just like the cover to #4 was all about the Owls claiming Gotham, this cover is almost the reverse image - this is Bruce's time to win the city back, with everything at his disposal. Really, this issue is the biggest of the bunch - the battle for the soul of Gotham. Be there! And thanks again to Comic Vine and to all of you from team Batman.
In case you've somehow forgotten, here's the cover to issue #4.
