Batman 5 Cover

(DC Comics)

A shining star in DC’s “New 52” lineup, the current run of Batman has witnessed the introduction of an entirely new villainous presence in Gotham City: the mysterious Court of Owls. Writer Scott Snyder has big plans for the Owls – they’ll be at the center of a Batverse crossover event this summer.

In the next issue of Batman, the Caped Crusader finds himself at the mercy of the Owls. Surrealism ensues. You can read the full issue when it hits stores Jan. 18th. For now, check out EW’s full sneak peek here.
