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. […]
We’re incredibly pleased to present the first in our series of original interviews here at Blastoff, as our correspondent Amy Ratcliffe sits down with comic-book writer and historian extraordinaire Mark Waid! Enjoy!
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.

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.

In the Fall From Grace storyline, DD had convinced everyone he WASN’T Matt Murdock. After one paper ran a speculative story, […]
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.
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 […]
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 […]
