Daredevil’s "storytelling engine" – link tip

While taking the rest of the weekend (well, the twelve hours that are left of it…) off from blogging, I thought I’d link this blog post I read a while back. In it, blogger John Seavey writes about Daredevil’s central concept and how it was that the book even managed to survive its first one hundred issues while lacking any real direction. It’s interesting reading, and his similar analyses of other characters, such as Captain America, are recommended as well.

My plans for the coming week, in terms of posts for this blog, is the next chapter of my series Oh Karen!, where we take a look at her role in the drama that was the Mike Murdock era. I’ll also return to my series on the history of the radar sense, and look at the many complexities of the character in a post I’m tentatively going to call The Appeal of Daredevil. I will also take a humorous look at Daredevil and driving(!). Thank you Alice for suggesting it! Of course, I’ll also post a review of Daredevil: Blood of the Tarantula some time at the end of the week.

I also have some loose plans for next month as we count down to Daredevil #107, where I intend to take a closer look at the lawyer side of Matt Murdock in a series of posts. I will hopefully also get around to doing that Daredevil/Punisher analysis I’ve mentioned a couple of times.

Within the next couple of posts, I’ll reach the fifty post mark. So, I’d just like to thank my few but loyal readers for keeping me going at this frenzied pace. Once I hit one hundred, I’ll probably have to cut back to two or three posts a week, but I’ve wanted to build a solid foundation of good content before slowing down to the kind of posting frequency I’ll be able to maintain in the long run. Please keep commenting, and know that I’m more than open to suggestions about various topics. If you like this blog, link it (and if you let me know about it, I’ll link you in return). If you don’t… Well, thanks anyway for stopping by! 🙂

Have a great rest of the weekend everybody!
