Matt’s about to get some…

Since I’m in the middle of writing a post summing up the entire last two years of Daredevil stories in preparation for Shadowland – an endeavor about as time-consuming as you might expect – I thought I’d stall you with this off-beat panel from Daredevil #135, by Marv Wolfman and Bob Brown. Here, we see Matt being a little upset while Heather Glenn, his then girlfriend, tries to lift his spirits by offering him to play a game “that has smiles built right into the rules.” Oh, whatever could that be?

Whatever Heather did to him it must have been pretty effective since he appears to have been given a healthy dose of silly power. You see, later in the issue, he goes out in search of aberrant radio signals. Oh dear. Did Heather bang his head against the headboard or is the built-in antenna back in town? Ah, wacky days…

As a reminder, don’t forget to enter the contest I put up last week where you get the chance to win a copy of the Ultimate Elektra: Devil’s Due TPB.

  1. “Trusty Radar Senses, Lead On!”

    I think I’m most amused at the dialogue. :]

  2. Game? Smiles? I’m confused. Heather’s subtlety escapes me.
