My cats reenact scenes from Daredevil

With less than two weeks to the heavily anticipated relaunch of Daredevil #1, set to hit stores in North America on July 20, it’s high time to start counting down the days. If you’ve noticed my being MIA in the last week or so, it’s because I’ve been away on vacation and mostly away from the keyboard. Now that I’m rested (and while I still have time off from work), you can look forward to daily posts in my little countdown series “Reasons to Look Forward to the Daredevil Relaunch.” In it, I will just focus briefly on various aspects of the information that has come out so far and each post will center around a particular piece of art, a quote from an interview etc.

The first post will go up in a few hours, but to satisfy a request for more cat pictures that was made on TOMP’s Facebook page, here is a list of scenes from the Daredevil comic featuring Daredevil and Elektra, reenacted by their feline namesakes, my now eight month old kittens Murdock and Elektra. Silly, I know, but aren’t they just adorable? 😉

I hope you enjoyed this silly post! I will be back shortly for a cat-free entry. 😉

  1. These are adorable! I especially love the reenactment of Daredevil #78. Bahaha.

  2. Yeah, #78 is pretty cute! Your cats are so sweet!

  3. Thanks! Yeah, #78 is pretty funny. I love how I managed to capture Elektra with her paws in the air like that. 🙂 They’re really good buddies though and “play fight” a lot. With Murdock being nearly twice the size of his sister these days I’ve been concerned that she might get completely pommeled by him, but she knows how to defend herself and even sets after him a lot of times. Even though it looks pretty wild I’ve never found so much as a scratch on either of them.
