Night of the Owls crossover is kicking into high gear this week starting off with Batman following along side the Bat- family . With all the buzz that’s been spreading from interviews with Scott Snyder to Greg Capullo no doubt in my mind this story arc will go down in history with the best of them . I can’t begin to say how much I have been loving it . If you’re not getting enough info on these interviews, then good news ! Batman artist, Greg Capullo has been speaking to various interviewers the last few days . Today, he spoke to one of DC Comics authors , Josh Kushins .
You know, I’ve only been drawing BATMAN for, oh… nine months. In that time, I’ve had to draw Batman receiving the biggest beat down that I can ever recall. I mean, c’mon already! Stabbed, beaten, deprived of sleep, food and water. Okay, he had water – but it was freakin’ drugged! He’s seen a vision of his dead folks vomiting owls, he gets stabbed AGAIN (this time with a really BIG knife), has his home invaded…
You know what? I’ve, I mean, he, er… WE’VE had it! The time has come – way past due – the Batman that we all love shall have his Bat REVENGE!!! And, I promise you, people, no wimpy, play-by-the-rules BS. Oh no. I’m talking a truly satisfying bloodletting is on its way. After pushing Batman all the way to the edge – millimeters from his mental and physical breaking point – he’s pushing back. So, get your Kevlar on. We don’t want any collateral damage when Batman unleashes all his pent-up pain, fury and vengeance upon these damned goggle wearin’, knife totin’, little-beaked SOBs who “like hunting Waynes.”
Payback’s a bitch.
