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!
