What’s this, you ask. A new post? After a full year and a half? Yup! I’ll keep this one short, but I’d be remiss to let #SaveDaredevilCon come and go without reminding everyone of the event and the many exciting panels and fan activities happening throughout this weekend, beginning tomorrow July 23.
If you’re interested in hearing from me directly, I will also be appearing on the “Discussing Daredevil” fandom panel, alongside some other Daredevil superfans, including the incomparable Kuljit Mithra (ManWithoutFear.com). I had a great time talking to Kuljit, Emma, and Joshua, and hope you guys enjoy our conversation as well. Read more about all the panels here.
As with all of the pre-recorded events, it will be available indefinitely on the #SaveDaredevil YouTube channel, so don’t worry if you miss the premiere of anything you want to see!
Before I let you go, I’ll just respond to some questions I’ve been getting over the past couple of years of little to no activity:
How do I like the current run?
I like it fine, but I don’t love it as much as I would have liked to. That probably deserves more of an explanation, and I should probably try to give one at some point. Suffice it to say that I absolutely love Marco Checchetto’s art (he was a favorite of mine, even before this run), which represents an easy 75 percent of what I like about this run.
When it comes to Chip Zdarsky’s writing, it’s good for the most part, but I’m not “feeling it” as much as I had hoped after that stellar first couple of issues. Having said that, it’s a huge step up from the previous run for me, and I’m certainly interested in seeing where the story goes.
How’s my book coming along?
Hm, yeah… That book I’ve been tackling on and (mostly) off for the last eight years? Well, it’s obviously still a work in progress, but I really am quite happy with what I have so far, and I’m planning another big push in the next couple of weeks.
How am I doing?
Fine! Thank you for asking, as many have. I really do want to get back to blogging on a regular basis, but it’s hard to get back to a routine you’ve completely fallen out of, and especially so when you’re not feeling inspired to do so. So, I’m not making any promises at this time.
