What the *beep* happened to my weekend? Judging by the stiffness of my back, too much of it was spent on major spring cleaning (thanks to my furry felines Murdock and Elektra, I generally think of cleaning the apartment as “defluffing,” a process that requires chasing rapidly multiplying dust bunnies while bent into uncomfortable positions). So, sadly my Daredevil: Season One review will have to wait until tomorrow. However, there were some news items to come out over the weekend – solicitation-related, to be exact – that I felt were worthy of their own post. So, here goes!
Marvel’s July solicitations included Daredevil #15. The issue’s interior art is by Chris Samnee and Paolo Rivera gives us yet another lovely cover. According to Chris Samnee, Daredevil #15 is the second in a three-issue arc, which makes me wonder about the “arc status” of issues #12 and #13, but I’m sure that will sort itself out.
In other news, Daredevil will also face off against Psylocke in the Avengers vs X-Men companion book Avx Vs #4. I’m not sure that’s something I’m terribly interested in, but what kind of half-ass Daredevil blog would I be running if I didn’t at least make an attempt at dissecting it? In July, we’ll also see a Fantastic Four annual by Alan Davis that’s presented as follows (emphasis mine):
The Thing and The Human Torch investigate a mysterious magical paradox in space and time with the help of Doctor Strange! What dark secrets haunt the history of the ClanDestine? Legendary comics creator Alan Davis kicks off a series of ClanDestine adventures, continuing in Daredevil Annual #1 in August!
Yep, the Daredevil annual by Alan Davis that was mentioned some time last year is due out in August. I can’t say I’m crazy about it being so (seemingly) far removed from the regular goings on in the main series, nor am I a big fans of mysterious magical paradoxes in general. However, just the fact that I’m even complaining should give you an idea of how spoiled us Daredevil fans are becoming.
That’s it for now. I hope you guys have a great rest of the week, and I’ll see you all back here very soon!
