News Roundup, May 24

May 24, 2009

Okay, time for one of these again! Let’s cut to the chase, shall we?


  • I guess the big news this week was the release of the Daredevil #500 solicit featuring 104 pages of old and new material, including a new story by fan favorite Ann Nocenti and art by David Aja. I blogged about this already so check a few entries down or go directly to the link at

  • Andy Diggle was apparently introduced into the ranks of Marvel’s “Write Stuff” writers along with four other rising stars. I’m not sure what this initiative means for these writers exactly, aside from the extra spotlight, but one can hope that they at least get a free spa weekend or something. Diggle talks about Daredevil (staying impressively tight-lipped about the details) and more in his interview with Marvel. I guess the only thing we know is that Dakota North will be around to buy donuts after DD #500, unless Diggle likes to throw red herrings at his followers on Twitter.


Nope, no links this time. Haven’t had the time to chase anything down. In fact, right now, I’m so tired I’m actually in pain. Feel bad for me? You should. No, seriously, it’s not that bad, but suffice it to say that the last month has been strenuous and that I’m actually surprised I’ve been able to post as frequently as I have lately. Tomorrow, I’ll be heading out on work-related business for a week, but will post updates as time and Internet connections allow. For some reason, I get the feeling that they will announce the next Daredevil artist this week. Can’t quite put my finger on it, but it seems like the appropriate time. We’ll see about that.

Have a good week everyone!

    Sorry to hear you’re stressed. Hang in there, Christine. Your blog posts are always a joy.

    Thanks Robert. Right now I’m in a hostel in southern Sweden (with free wi-fi access, yay!) while I’m busy hitting the very unglamorous campaign trail during the day. I’ve just been working my ass of on my own project (99% of which is done already) for the past month and it’s used up most of my reserves. It’s a good thing the weather is nice at least. ๐Ÿ™‚
