Karen's feeling bummed about Matt at the beginning of this issue.  Whilst she looks forlornly out of the window of Nelson & Murdock, annoying Mike Murdock sits cross legged on her desk behind, juggling.  Mike tells Karen that Matt's away giving a lecture at some university so he won't be around.  I'm kind of hoping that Stan has a big bus waiting for Mike for him to step out in front of...  No, wait. He's Matt, right?  Sheesh.  I'm like Foggy and Karen now, getting confused about who Matt is...

Secret Invasion 8 0

Spoilers, probably.Bendis.  Boy, can he be frustrating sometimes huh?  I'm sure he's used this ploy before where he's set things up big style at the end of issue seven, only to downplay events almost immediately in the succeeding issues by adding in disembodied dialogue throughout this issue from two characters talking after everything's ended.  The effect of this is to deaden the atmosphere somewhat.  I agree with the other two reviewers that the Wasp's death oddly really doesn't work - it's al...

Daredevil 25 0

Well, I gotta say.  There are underwhelming villains and then there are villains whose first glance of them is in a suit with a handkerchief around the bottom half of their face and with coil springs on the soles of their shoes.  Yes, folks, meet the Leap Frog, possibly brought into duty because Slightly Bored Man was unavailable.  Okay, I'm being a little unkind.  But, hey, as with the Owl's mechanical bird a few issues back, Stan, obviously embarrassed, has Matt on page two asking "How corny c...

Daredevil 23 0

The threats issued against Foggy and Karen at the end of the last issue are very quickly dismissed, cited by the Masked Marauder merely as a ruse in which to attract DD's attention so that he can levitate him into his plexi-glass prisons back at his base.  It strikes me that the Levitation Ray that the Marauder uses is very similar to the teleportation device used in Star Trek.  Now, I'm not sure exactly when the original series of Star Trek first came out but it must have been very close - with...

One month on from the last story and Daredevil's still trying to land the Owl's implausible mechanical bird.  Judge Lewis, who DD had rescued from the Owl's aerie, remarks that he is impressed that the hero has been using his own body as rudder to help guide them to safety.  Why more pilots don't try the same trick, I'll never know.Karen, forever mooching after the disappeared Matt, is still being hassled by Foggy for dinner and gives in.  "I might as well," she thinks.  "I haven't heard from Ma...

As much as I hate disagreeing with my good buddy, inferiorego, I must confess that I was really quite disappointed in this issue.  I'm not a big Cable fan and I hadn't read any of the early Deadpool series, but from what I had heard, I liked the idea of the unhinged, possibly schizophrenic hitman, with the inner dialogues and hallucinogenic visions.  I quite liked his tussle with Wolvie in Wolverine Origins.  But there, as here, my worst fears were confirmed regarding writer Daniel Way.  Now it'...

A very dramatic opening sequence here as Daredevil hangs over a seemingly bottomless pit in a bottomless cage!  That old Aerie sure has a lot of space for fiendish traps, huh?  Unfortunately it's also very old, as Matt had spotted last issue, when little pieces of stone crumbled down on his from the ceiling.  Now what could this be leading to?  The Owl's Aerie, it transpires, has only been built on top of an active volcano!  Perhaps the Owl got the land particularly cheap considering the potenti...

Debuting this issue, according to the credits, is 'Gentleman' Gene Colan!  Now Colan is the Daredevil artist that I initially grew up with and it's something of a surprise to see his very distinctive style seems at first to be deliberately toned down to fit in with what has gone before.  It's much more like the style of John Romita or Wally Wood.  But then we encounter some stunning panels that are reminiscent of classic Colan.  A scene, shot from foot high, of DD landing on his window ledge is ...

Back in the 60s, Stan Lee could be very playful in the comic books he was writing, making little witty asides, giving nicknames to writers and artists, talking about the MMMS.  In this issue, he hands out a rosette on the first page of the story assuring the reader that, not only has the book been passed by Comics Code Authority, but also meets the "Good Marvelkeeping Seal of Approval" (with 'nuff said added below).  I'm not sure if this rosette was ever handed out again or what it was about thi...

Daredevil 18 0

First appearance of the troubled Melvin Potter, aka the Gladiator this issue.  There is some sense of the troubled soul he will become.  After coming across as thuggish and arrogant when dealing with Foggy in his costume shop (Foggy's there to get a Daredevil costume, to help him impress Karen), he lets rip on his shop dummies, accusing all superheroes of being 'braggarts'.  Ah, that's a word I miss from the past.The best thing about Foggy getting his DD costume is the potential image of the, as...

Poor Foggy - not only does he endure the indignity of being held out of a window by Spider-man at the beginning of this issue - the webcrawler's doubting that he is in fact Daredevil due to the fact that Nelson is 'flabbier' than he would imagine the man without fear to be.  Whilst Foggy clearly carries a substantial belly later in the run, he's portrayed as positively svelte in the early issues by comparison.  With this mention of flab, though, Foggy is suddenly displayed as packing a few extra...
