We are really excited about some of DC Comics’ new books coming out soon, but the biggest excitement is around Talon, a new ongoing series about an assassin from the Court of Owls, who reeked havoc on Gotham city last month. This is a great idea because one of the best things about the recent “Night of the Owls” storyline was all of rich backstory and characters. I have to admit that, when I first heard this, I thought. “hm.. a book about an immortal ex-killing machine, with regenerative abilities and an unclear past? Sounds like a certain Marvel poster boy to me…” But Scott Snyder, who is co-plotting the book with new writer, James Tynion and drawing by Guillem March, said that this Talon would actually be a newest recruit, who is still alive and human. So, he won’t be an immortal Talon like the ones hunting him down in the book. Also, he adds, that the costume has to do with his past as an escape artist. That reminds me of how Nightwing designed his costume from his parents Flying Graysons days.
We can’t wait to see where this one goes!
