Big surprise. Actually I am. I've been enjoying Brubaker's run. How could you not? But I don't really care for Milla. Let her go to jail. Lilly Lucca? Whatever. I do have to say that for an issue #100, I wasn't overly impressed, even though Brubaker wrote it. There wasn't anything super special. Also Marvel decided to make a over-sized issue by including two reprints from old issues of DD. Yeah it was useful to figure out who the heck Mr. Fear was but I don't really care about him either.
Marvel is pleased to announce that the highly-anticipated Daredevil #100 has sold out at Diamond (though copies may be available at the retail level). Featuring the multiple Eisner-Award and Harvey-Award winning creative team of writer Ed Brubaker and artist Michael Lark, in addition to some of the greatest artists from Daredevil’s history, Daredevil #100 featured an intense look at the tortured psyche of Daredevil as he seeks to overcome Mr. Fear and the Enforcers. This landmark issue has thrilled fans and critics alike, leading to a quick sell out at Diamond!
“That's great to hear!” exclaimed Brubaker of the sell out. “I knew when I saw all the artists’ pages coming in that this would be something special. I just hope that if this is anyone's first issue they'll stick around to see what's coming next. Mr. Fear just ripped a huge piece out of Matt Murdock's life, and what happens next isn't going to be what anyone is expecting.”
IGN.Com’s Jesse Schedeen deemed the issue a “must read” and gushed, “Ed Brubaker has the potential to become the greatest writer in the 40 years of Daredevil comics.”
“Daredevil is a must read book month in and month out,” exclaimed Newsarama.Com’s Richard Renteria.
With numerous awards and critical buzz for Daredevil, Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on upcoming issues of this acclaimed series. Matt Murdock’s being pushed to his edge and if he’s not careful, Daredevil #101 may be the issue where it all might just come down crashing around him! And in Daredevil Annual #1, Daredevil is reunited with a face from the past—Black Tarantula—and it’s time to learn if a man can really change.
Please note that Marvel currently has no plans to go back to press on Daredevil #100.
