This is rather a novel name for what I hope will become an ongoing series where I get to discuss some of the characters I find most appealing from our three main genres, Watch, Play and Read.
We try hard on the site to avoid spoilers, this does have a downside though. For many characters it's the journey they go on that makes them compelling reading. So this section will be spoiler filled. I will highlight the relevant issues/episodes/films/games at the start of the article, so that if you can make an informed choice before reading.
The name itself comes from the physical media that we use to consume our three focuses. The idea of having a disc within a cover or a book for that matter may be on the way out but there is still a place for this kind of media here at Backwards Compatible.
What this is
The random chat is changing a little to be just as the title says. This is going to function as my place to chat about things that can come from anywhere, from TV to films to Sport to gaming. Most things are up for discussion even though I will avoid the key no no's like Religion, Politics and Macro Economics (Micro economics of the gaming/comics world though is still fair game) and of course the biggie whether the Spice Girls were the greatest musical group of all time or not. I hope to bring a taste of something different in these posts and please feel free to comment where you see fit.
