“NIGHT OF THE OWLS” – TALON DESIGN (1940s)

“NIGHT OF THE OWLS” – TALON DESIGN (1940s)

The next image in Greg Capullo's designs for the "Talons of the Ages" has been released.



From Josh Kushins at DC's Blog,

The "Night of the Owls" is coming this May, pitting the extended Bat-family against the deadly Court of Owls. A shadowy secret society with roots that date back to Gotham City's earliest history, the Court employs a cadre of timeless, sinister assassins known as Talons to execute its malevolent will.

Clashing with BATGIRL, the 1940s Talon represented a different kind of design challenge for BATMAN artist Greg Capullo. "Scott's direction was she was an African-American female," said Capullo. "I freely admit that the design of the breastplate was inspired by the fact that she had breasts."
