Batman #21 by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo

Batman21

By this point it really should be no secret that Scott Snyder has crafted some of the best Batman stories ever. He invented one of the greatest foes ever in the form of the Court of Owls, told a utterly horrific Joker story, and now he’s setting his sights on the past in the form of a year long arc being called “Batman: Year Zero”. Now, given that “Batman: Year One” by Frank Miller is one of the most revered Batman stories of all time, it’s possible that Snyder is setting himself up for failure. But if there’s one thing he has proved it’s that on some fundamental level, Snyder understands both Batman and Bruce Wayne, how they work, how they think, and what the nature of their relationship to their rogues is.

RELAUNCH, also The Top Five Films Since We Stopped Posting On This Here Blog

This just seemed appropriate.

In preparing for this day, we asked what the best way to relaunch the site would be.  And the answer was fairly obvious.  A Top Five List.  These are not reviews, just ramblings.  But they are our favorite films since almost a year ago.  So, without further ado, here are The Top Five Films Since We Stopped Posting On This Here Blog.

Hit the break to read on…
