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.

You know you've got a great villain when you can't wait for the hero to come back with a vengeance and destroy him in anyway possible. .

Is i just me or does this Batman look way too much like Jean-Paul Valley's Batman (Azbats)?

I have no reason not to trust Snyder so far and I really hope he will resist the 90's comeback of the reboot.

Batman is getting a "newer" costume?

I have been liking this a lot as well. Can't wait for this book to pick up steam.

This has been a great series. Each issue has delivered more and more each time. But since this is comic vine give me 2 min to find a problem with it.

So.....a sinister enemy breaks Batman, only for him to return and show that you don't break Batman, Batman breaks you?

Never read that before. Except for the two times that I did.

@Sky_Jokiel: LoL

#28 Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus (6885 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm so wanting to read this too, I just hope people realize the ideas of this arc in Batman is hardly new since it smacks a lot of Knightfall and RIP. Still, when the trade on this is out finally I will definitely read it.

#29 Posted by BatClaw89 (144 posts) - - Show Bio
@RedheadedAtrocitus: This is new in the sense that it affects not him as Batman but Bruce Wayne and the Wayne family and deep into the History of Gotham the city he thought he knew. But you will see when you get the TPB

The court of owls has been really good so far, and greg capullo is amazing, but that fucking chin on batman...

Thank you DC for hiring Scott Snyder. I haven't been this excited about a Bat-event since No Man's Land.

Really cool, looks like Bruce is going to bring the pain.

#40 Posted by Skies327 (230 posts) - - Show Bio

I went into the New 52 expecting Green Lantern to be my favorite book (Because of my love for Sinestro) but Batman has been, in my opinion, the best one by far. The story with the Court of Owls gets better as each issue comes out, and this cover reveal just screams bigger and better. Love it.
