In the far flung past of Backwards Compatible we had a little show called Why should I? In this show I would have guests come on and tell me why their favourite pieces of entertainment needed attention. On one of these shows (the video below), Chris and Matt came on to tell me about the greatness that is The Court of Owls by Scott Snyder and Greg Capulo. Now thanks to a sale at Comixology (although I got mine from Amazon on the Kindle store) I have realised my error in judgement by not getting into this series earlier.
For their brave attempt to educate a boring old fart and for being right, I award them this Special Recognition Award; Services to the Promotion of Batman.
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.
