This panel from Daredevil #64 (vol 1), by Roy Thomas isn’t strictly a “seeing” goof, so it doesn’t really belong in this category. But it’s kind of a funny panel and I haven’t updated much this week. I’m blaming that on a bad cold and a screwy Internet connection. And in a pinch, this one will just have to do.

This is actually an example of one of those cool DD tricks that consists of feeling the indentations left by a pen on the pages underneath. It’s kind of neat, and yes, it is very “spy movie.” And he may even have picked this one up from a spy movie.

But, when does he find the time to watch 2000 spy movies? That’s the equivalent of one spy movie per night for almost five and a half years. And if he’s doing it to pick up certain tricks, I’m not sure all of them are referenced in the audio portion. So yeah, this one might be a stretch, but it does make me smile.

Also note Roy Thomas’s hilarious habit of using the word “brother” when Matt is talking about himself in the third person. The careful reader will see that one a few times during his run.

Anyway, I shall return soon, and by the end of the week there should be a review of DD #107 up as well!

  1. He’s exaggerating for his own amusement.

  2. I always assumed Matt was an avid TV and movie watcher as a kid, before he lost his sight–which would explain his pop culture references, when he’s chipper enough to make them, and smooth over a lot of potential plot wrinkles where he really shouldn’t understand a reference someone else is making. I can just see him theater-hopping as a kid to stay away from neighborhood bullies (maybe whenever the library was closed). Spy movies, martial-arts movies, and swashbuckler movies would go a long way toward explaining how he developed the Daredevil persona …
