Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo's first arc was to bring back the Bat — to show that he was the top dog, the biggest badass of the DC Universe. By the end of "Night of the Owls," that mission was handily accomplished. And now, for their second epic on Batman, Snyder and Capullo are upping the ante even further.

You can almost hear the sick chuckle. The Joker has returned to Gotham City — and like any good showman, his entrance is pitch-perfect.

While I enjoyed Scott Snyder's plotting and pacing during "Night of the Owls," there was always a part of me that felt that it was Greg Capullo that really made that story, that it was a hit more because of the stellar art rather than just the writing.

Well, Scott Snyder is making me eat my words right now — his Joker is downright terrifying, a monster in the shadows that very much evokes Heath Ledger's guttural anarchist from The Dark Knight. "Stop me if you've heard this one before!" Snyder's Joker is a shark, a force of nature that by his very gravity pulls in the rest of the Batman family in his wake. For better or for worse, he is a member of Bruce Wayne's nearest and dearest — in Snyder's hands, the Joker gives everyone else context.

And that's just the exposition. There's plenty of suspense and action to this book, with Snyder and Greg Capullo really knocking it out of the park. I love the strobe effect Capullo works in as the Joker begins picking off victims in a darkened room. Capullo's edgy lines also really bring up the heightened tension as Batman shouts his frustrations — and his fears — into the darkness. There is one moment near the end where the storytelling does take a hiccup, but a second reading will only heighten the danger Batman finds himself in.

Since the New 52, Batman has been blessed with an indomitable winning streak, thanks to Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo. But it's even more exciting that this issue is their best one yet. The Clown Prince of Crime might be at his most murderous, but make no mistake — he's going to put a smile on your face.

Batman #0 was on par with Snyder's recent work: bland and uninteresting.

Also, I despise Lovers and Madmen. Also I prefer a Joker who may not have been evil before becoming the Joker, but that's just me.

Lovers and Madmen really ought to be forgotten

That origin for the Joker was just awful on a waffle both as a Joker story and a comic book story in general

Not as bad as the Ultimate X men the guy did but still

not only is the story lame as hell, but the art is awful. And while I understand what the writer was trying to do with Batsy, there is no way he would let the mob do that. I did like the climax scene though.

I never understood how The Red Hood became an instant criminal genius without already having those traits. A simple dunking in some acid wouldn't turn you into the craftiest villain in Batman's rogue gallery. So this made more sense to me.

So you didnt like the Owl storyline?

I do get your point. I think he became so crazy it made him a genius in a way.

I like court of the owls, but thought night of the owl was too over the top and clichι.

Did no one read Red Hood #0? It implies that Joker has always known that Bruce is Batman. Whacky stuff. I'm wondering if it is canon or just Joker's delusion.

I've always assumed that he's known all along. He was totally unsurprised when Bruce unmasked in front of him in Batman RIP after all

He definitely still knows in the new DCU continuity as well going by the end of this months issue of Batman

Alfred shall totally kick his ass though

It's a foolish villain who picks a fight with Alfred

Crazy faceless jive mutha

^ I can just imagine it now,shotgun to Joker's kneecaps leaving him crippled for life before old Alfie takes three steps and dies of a stroke.

How utterly proper.

Joker's already been kneecapped. It didn't work.

That's pretty interesting. I hope not hush though. His face swapping gimmick was played way to death.

That's not much better.

It's a shame they put Fabok on Detective. He'd be the obvious choice to replace Finch.

At least they're taking the book serious now by putting Ethan Van on board thats some A list talent right there.

Liked Batman #13 well enough. Still loving Capullo's art. Excited for the story possibilities it presents and really intrigued by the new direction with Joker.
