Today's calendar piece is a tip for comic book fans! Batman's the Court of Owls and the City of Owls are the by far the best graphic novels I read this year. I devoured them both on one sitting when I bought them, and I wish more comics were like these. So twisted and addictive, adding even darker depths to the Gotham mythos that was vast and darkly colourful to begin with. Scott Snyder has quickly become one of my favourite writers in this field, but these books are also strong in art, not just the quality of writing.
(These books also reinforce the phrase "The owls are not what they seem..")
"Beware the Court of Owls, that watches all the time, ruling Gotham from a shadowed perch, behind granite and lime. They watch you at your hearth, they watch you in your bed, speak not a whispered word about them, or they'll send The Talon for your head."
