Review of Daredevil #8

I was born in 1977, when muted shades of brown and orange still reigned supreme in fashion and home decor. From the time I was old enough to have my own opinion, however, I loved purple. I was not yet two and still in a stroller when I grasped a pair of purple winter overalls and refused to let go. My mom obviously had to buy them. When I was a little older, I had a favorite night gown that was white with purple trims and dotted with various shades of purple and lilac flowers. I wore it until it … [Read More]

Review of Daredevil #7

As you may have sensed from my review of Daredevil #6, I felt pretty much done with this two-part Original Sin tie-in after last issue, and was already mentally moving on to next month's Daredevil #8. I hadn't expected Daredevil #7 to pull me back in the way it did, and I definitely hadn't expected anything so clever, moving and well-crafted. Yes, … [Read More]


Review of Daredevil #6

Since this is a fairly early review and many have not yet read the issue, be warned that there are spoilers ahead! Daredevil #5, which came out earlier this month, was one of my favorite issues of Mark Waid & Co.'s run so far (both volumes included). Daredevil #6, however… I'm just going to come out and say it: This was not my cup of tea. It may … [Read More]

The Other Murdock Papers Podcast – Netflix Daredevil Special

It's a podcast about nothing but the Marvel/Netflix Daredevil show coming our way in 2015! I make a number of references to old posts, news, and various YouTube clips during this podcast, and you'll find all of … [Read More]

Matt asks to have a large robot described to him, in Daredevil #5

A world of touch and motion

I'm going to state right off the bat that, as I'm sitting down to write this, I don't have a proper title yet for this post. Which is rare for me, since I usually have an idea for the main theme of every post (even when it's not just as straight-forward as "Review of…") and always type in the title before I do anything else. If you're reading this, … [Read More]



How Daredevil became Matt Murdock

It's been a while since I've had the time to write a longer "essay" type of post, but there have been a couple of ideas brewing in the back of my mind for a while. One struck me while I was going through older – Silver and Bronze Age – issues of Daredevil and has to do with the gradual process of Daredevil and Matt Murdock becoming "one," and the … [Read More]

Matt on the roof top, not succumbing to depression, as seen in Daredevil #34 by Mark Waid and Javier Rodríguez.

Daredevil’s inner demons

Hey gang! I've had some trouble posting over the last couple of days. Sunday evening, my dear friend Mr. MacBook decided that he'd had it with me, and shut down for good. I took the little bugger into the Apple store yesterday, but considering its relatively advanced age of six (or was it seven?) years and the fact that any kind of "exploratory … [Read More]


Interview with Daredevil: Road Warrior artist Peter Krause

Sorry to leave you guys with my odd-ball "taxation of the blind" post for a whole week! But, I hope you'll forgive me as I'm finally ready to present my interview with Daredevil: Road Warrior artist Peter Krause. I am so grateful that Peter was available to do this interview, and I had a great time chatting with him! Note: Due to a slight … [Read More]
