Review of Daredevil #10

My goodness, what a great issue. For starters, even though I feel like I'm repeating myself whenever I point out that Chris Samnee somehow keeps getting better and better, this issue is a perfect example of what I mean. There are so many scenes and panels in this issue that I absolutely adored, to the point where I may have to do another one of my "revisited" posts to talk about all of them. Even so, this review is bound to have an unusual number of panels from this week's issue. To give this … [Read More]



Review of Daredevil #9

In Daredevil #9, storytellers Waid and Samnee skillfully add a new layer to the Purple Man's mythos by setting up his children as a new and different threat to Daredevil. As anyone familiar with Matt's history with Killgrave will know, the former's blindness makes him partially immune to the latter's powers of persuasion. Not completely immune, … [Read More]


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 … [Read More]

Daredevil in Superior Iron Man – Should we worry?

A couple of weeks ago, when Bleeding Cool reported a rumor about the consequences of Daredevil's involvement in the first arc of Superior Iron Man, my initial reaction was to throw a minor temper tantrum on Twitter, along the lines of "What the #%!? Marvel!" (Though I probably don't have to delete the expletive since I'm usually pretty polite even … [Read More]



Daredevil #9: Let’s cover the cover

Nope, this is not a review. I don't have an advance copy of Daredevil #9 and this issue won't show up in Marvel's digital store for almost another hour as I'm sitting down to write this. (I usually buy my Daredevil comics twice since they tend to take another day or two to arrive in my local comic book store in Stockholm.) However, I thought the … [Read More]

Time to rebuild

I'm going to tell you right away that this is going to be a much more personal post than usual. You've been warned. Hopefully though, it will be one that will jumpstart this blog again. As I'm sure everyone has noticed, I've really let things slide in the last year or so, particularly in the last few months. It used to be that whenever I found it … [Read More]
