Okay, this is more of a random post, but this weekend I will be posting reviews/brief summaries of all of Brubaker’s arcs so far. Fun, huh? For those who might be curious about what criteria I’m basing my reviews on, here’s a link to my review guidelines in .pdf format. This link will be posted again anytime I do a review from now on.
Meanwhile, there’s a new interview with Brubaker up at Newsarama, along with some additional art work from #106. These pictures look much better than the ones we saw previously and it seems like they are cleaning up the art a lot. This looks more similar to Larks work, but with a slightly more “cartoony” feel to it. Also (and without spoiling the preceding arc for anyone), it is clear that Heather and Glorianna have not been forgotten, which I know is something that at least one segment of my readership appreciates. That’s all I’m going to say about that. 😉 I’d have to say that the interview was pretty interesting as well, and it was nice to hear Bru talk about some of his motivations for doing certain things.
Other posts coming up in the next few days: “Wacky power #4 – Daredevil, arts critic?,” “Oh Karen! #2” and the first post in a new series that will be a sort of natural history of the radar sense, told through panels from the book. Writers and artists have interpreted it many different ways throughout Daredevil history, and I thought that might be interesting to explore.
I’m going to try to post a lot in the next couple of weeks, before I go to China on the 28th to work for two weeks, during which time the blog will probably go on hiatus. Meanwhile, I’ll do my best to keep you entertained. Speaking of entertainment, my #106 spoof is now the number one hit for the Google search query “Daredevil #106 cover” (without the quotes). I thought that was pretty funny. The link doesn’t lead to this blog but to my LiveJournal account where it was cross-posted. Okay, take care everyone!
