Seeing things #11

Let’s add another entry to the old series “Seeing things“! But first, here’s a hot off the presses press release from Marvel about how Daredevil is the best new series of the year. It also features some Daredevil #9 preview art!

Now to the seeing portion of our programming. This little piece of he’s-not-supposed-to-be-doing-that Daredevil action comes from Daredevil #77 (volume 1), by Gerry Conway and Gene Colan.

“Heads up, hero. Unless your radar senses are “seeing” things — that’s some sort of light filling the dusky horizon… perhaps a power line’s down — or something worse.”

Panels from Daredevil #77 in which Daredevil notices a light on the horizon

So Matt, care to tell us which one of your “radar senses” told you there was a light in the sky? Daredevil can’t see light – plain and simple – and he’s too far away to realistically (and I’m using the term loosely) pick up any other sign of a light source near by, such as heat. But apparently, he also notices that the horizon is dusky! How about that? 😉

Nope, I call seeing goof on this scenario!

    Gene Colan’s art is so moody and vivid that Daredevil doesn’t NEED eyes to see it! That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! 😀

    No-prize for you! 😀

    Wait a minute, how can the horizon be ‘dusky’ if there is a light in it?

    Mysteries upon mysteries…..another great entry in this series.
