I won't be picking this up I would have if the series was about Thomas Wayne Jr as Talon he looked badass in Batman #10 but I'm not picking up this book on a character I don't really care for. and also another bat title is a bit much he has about 10 titles now on his own it's pretty much Batman and the DCU.
Interview: Scott Snyder Talks About New Series TALON
ive got mixed feelings on this one. i mean yea the talons are really cool and the story lines were all really well done, but i feel like dc is just trying to cash in on the night of the owls story line and this is just gonna be some half hearted attempt. i hope im wrong though
Originally it was supposed to be that. DC noticed all the excitement from Night of the Owls and asked Scott Snyder to do a spin-off series. Scott Snyder wasn't sure he should do it because it would "cheapen" the story, but James came up with a good idea and Scott loved it. That is why Scott is on it too. I think for that reason, It is going to be a good book. And this new writer is going to be trying really hard on his first book. If it was a veteran writer, I would agree with you that it might be half-hearted, but it won't. Trust me.
It'll be interesting to see how the structure of this book works out. It seems like a good idea for a mini series, but I think Snyder's original notion that it might be milking the Court of Owls concept a bit too much might be accurate after an arc or two. Who knows, though, maybe it won't get stale. I'm definitely interested now that Snyder has put his personal support behind the writer. I'll have to check it out. Oh, and I don't know how I feel about the Court's influence spreading beyond Gotham. They felt like a very Gothamian concept, at least with the way that Snyder has built Gotham up. Them being global seems a bit much.
It worked with Batwing. I'm sure this can be a great ongoing. I don't think there really are specific stories only for minis. Comics have arcs you know? I could say the same thing about the first arc of the Justice League.
@KainScion: bear in mind the time in which(1920s+ i am assuming based on his birth), in which this is taking place. The modern talon suit seen in the new 52 batman is more technologically advanced with a likewise more modern and sleeker look. I believe the reason for the appearance of this costume is to establish antiquity
@KainScion: I agree, Firstly we DO NOT need another Bat-title, unless they dump dark knight and give us Red Robin... and that costume looks terrible. I get that he wouldn't want to wear the Talon costume (which is pretty awesome) but come on guys...
Other than that, Im very interested!
I don't understand why people want a red robin book. Teen titans kind of already is a red robin comic. I think having his own solo comic would just confuse readers. I'm already confused how he's in Batman and Robin while he's supposed to be in some dinosaur world in Teen Titans.
God, I can't even truly enjoy comics these days. This Talon is not even needed, how many other charcaters could have had Scott Snyder attached to it? This idea for a book could have been inserted into one of the other ten or so Bat titles. A Batman brother? Come on, enough is enough, this was a good interview and terrible decision. How many owl characters are there now? This new guy is a Batman knockoff in lame Azrael outfit.
