Batman: The Court of Owls

I’m Revisiting Batman: The Court of Owls by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo. Excellent story and great artwork with inventive camera angles and cool page layouts.
Snyder & Capullo manage to add something new to the Batman mythos. No small feat considering that guy has been around for 80+ years.

The story is written for the trade though, so I imagine the reading experience is better when reading the trade paperback instead of single issues. Which is a common “problem” in modern American comics.

Danse Macabre again

Stephen King’s Danse Macabre

Started re-reading Danse Macabre today, written by Stephen King. I didn’t get far into it the first time, but that has nothing to do with the quality of the book itself and everything with my mind getting distracted at every twist and turn for the last few years.

There’s too much going on but not a lot that really matters. So let me curl up on the couch and start reading, while I try to ignore the horrors of our current lives and idiotic behavior offline and online, and finally learn what horror is all about by one of the genre’s greatest masters.
