DC Comics has provided CBR News with the exclusive reveal of Trevor McCarthy’s “Talon” #1 variant cover. “Talon” is a brand-new addition to the New 52 and spins out of the “Night of the Owls” crossover that ran through the Batman family of titles and revealed the villainous mastermind behind the Court of Owls, the secret society pulling the strings behind the scenes in Gotham City. The new ongoing series is written by “Batman” writer Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV with art by Guillem March and follows Calvin Rose, the only Talon to ever escape the Court of Owls.
“Calvin Rose is the only Talon in the history of the Court of Owls to turn his back on the organization and run. He’s a tremendous liability for them — an organization that has operated in secret for so long can’t afford any rogue members,” Tynion told CBR News in June when the series was announced. “We’re going to see a man who has been running for years, and who needs to keep running as long as he lives if he wants to stay alive. Thankfully for him, getting out of sticky situations is pretty much his expertise. Like all of the Talons, Rose was a member of Haly’s Circus during his childhood, and his training there will be as important as his training with the court.”
“Talon” #0 is on sale September 26, and “Talon” #1 goes on sale October 24.
