Daredevil #105 - Ed Brubaker and Michael Lark

It’s Dangerous to Date Matt Murdock

Matt Murdock isn’t afraid to show his feelings. Well, except for the whole “I love Karen, but I don’t want to tell her how I feel and I’d rather just keep wondering if she feels the same way” bit from the beginning issues. So perhaps he’s a bit angst-ridden, but he’s hardly devoid of feeling. […]

Odds and Ends Blast Off!

We haven’t done one of these for a while, so let’s look at a few bite-size nuggets of coolness from around the Interwebs, comic shops, toy stores and anywhere else that geek treasure might be found. And away we go… TALKING DAREDEVIL Have you been visiting Blastoff every day? Hopefully so, since something new has […]

What the What?!

Ah, the 1970s. When the only place to see Marvel superheroes come to life was on television, generally CBS. Predating even the INCREDIBLE HULK, SPIDER-MAN, CAPTAIN AMERICA and DOCTOR STRANGE TV projects was this abortive attempt by David Bowie’s wife Angela in 1975 to get a DAREDEVIL AND BLACK WIDOW project off the ground. Though […]

Dareamy

  I’m hardly the Girl Without Fear. I aspire to be fearless, but I’m held back by doubt, worries about failing, and all the other baggage that comes with being human. Daredevil knows what’s around him when he jumps off rooftops. We don’t have the same advantage, but leaping blindly isn’t the worst action. Imagining […]

The Worst Kept Secret in Town

Over at his site manwithoutfear.com, Kuljit Mithra has put together this hilarious (because it’s true) list of all the people who have been made aware over the years of Daredevil’s (not so) secret identity. In the Fall From Grace storyline, DD had convinced everyone he WASN’T Matt Murdock. After one paper ran a speculative story, […]

Daredevil Making Snow Angels

If the cover for Daredevil #7 by Alex Maleev and Dave McCaigy doesn’t make you smile, you might not have a heart. Seeing Daredevil having such a lighthearted moment captures the spirit of Mark Waid’s recent run on the comic. I like seeing Daredevil have fun. He’s earned it.

Earth, Too

Big news last week with the revelation of the new series slated to replace the six cancelled DC “New 52” series, two of which are books that have your humble professor excited to buy some DC Comics again: EARTH-TWO, from James Robinson and Nicola Scott, which will presumably feature the Justice Society of America in […]

"Brother, Take My Hand."

“Brother, Take My Hand.”

There’s no two ways about it: my love of Marvel Comics comes directly from two sources: ORIGINS OF MARVEL COMICS and SON OF ORIGINS OF MARVEL COMICS. These two 1970s collections of the premiere issues of Marvel’s characters served as my introduction to the Marvel Universe, and in no more formative way than in the case of the […]

Daredevil vs. Matt Murdock

I respect Daredevil, I even like him. I like Matt Murdock better. The determined lawyer, the smooth talker, and the overachiever who never stops trying to make his father proud – he’s so… well, human. It’s taken me too long to include superhero comics with the independent titles in my pull list. One reason for […]
