Well this was a fun issue of Talon. I know some people don't like reading it. (Hint, Hint, Wink, Wink) But i had a pretty good time with all the plot twist and turns. So lets get down to the review shall we?
Calvin Rose (good Talon) is on a giant rock and trying to get close to the Grandmaster of the Court of Owls. While skulking in the tunnels he begins to fight with three other Talons who guard the rock island. Two are pretty much total bad asses, but the youngest one of the group can't do anything without falling on his face.
Calvin knows he can't beat the three of them straight up so he makes a run in the tunnels with the youngest Talon not far behind. Casey Washington is stuck behind with Sebastian Clark at his penthouse and is having some strange feelings about him. Something just doesn't sit right with her. To be honest, he hasn't seemed on the up and up since the first time i saw him back in issue one.
We get a little interlude where the Super Talon sees Batman and wants to start a fight. But the Court strongly disagrees with him. They remind him that they have implanted cryo bombs in his head to keep him in line. Super Talon sits down and in gruesome fashion starts to dig into his own skull to pull them out.
Calvin is taken hostage by Bad Talon #3 (hey, it's hard to keep track of all these damn other Talons) and meets the Grandmaster of the Court of Owls. The Grandmaster tells Calvin that he's been working for the Court this whole time. Calvin all like "No Way, Man. And the Grandmaster is like " Oh, yes way, dude!"
The big ending is that myself ( the reader) and Casey Washington stumble upon the fact that Calvin's good friend Sebastian Clark is really the former Grandmaster of the Court of Owls!!!
Intriguing stuff to behold. Now this book totally has my interest. Plus I wanna see how Batman's involved from this point forward. Well I'll be back next month to see Sebastian say it ain't so and Talon put on pants and stops acting like Nightwing lite.
