Ann Nocenti's DAREDEVIL run. It's pretty out there, since that's Nocenti's "thing." But this issue involves a brawl at a peach march and Daredevil doing the whole "Am I doing good as a vigilante" every superhero goes through now and again.



Johnny Storm also shows up for one page.

Jeff Lemire: I had a really interesting conversation with [Marvel Editor-in-Chief] Axel Alonso when he called to offer me the book. At first, it didn’t seem like something that I was really interested in. It wasn’t until I had a really good conversation with him and explained his take on the character and what that book could be that I really started to see the potential.

Warning for gore.

"From here on out, GI Joe has a new, global mandate. In this new world, where the Earth is beset on all sides by magical shapeshifters, by giant robots from space, by tiny people from another dimension, by Space Knights…its the Joes who are the champions and defenders of humanity and Earth as a whole. That means that we’ll be moving away from a team that exists to protect America’s interests, and toward one that defends and safeguards the Earth as a whole. And since they’ll be doing so in a world filled with such weird stuff… things are going start feeling less Sgt. Rock and more Challengers of the Unknown.

We’re bringing back the lasers, we’re putting a giant robot on the team, and we’re leaning fully into what have always been Giannis and my favorite parts of the series: Those weird science fiction elements. Most importantly though, its the tone and approach of the series that’s going to feel new, but also familiar to anyone who grew up with the Sunbow cartoons. This new GI Joe is, above all else, aspirational. These aren’t grimdark characters confronted with the grisly reality of war and combat — that’s so very far removed from what people want from the franchise. They are passionate, talented, excited young people, whose actions are rooted in a heartfelt desire to make the world a better place."

Elektra #1

"When I was brought onto this Elektra book, the biggest mandate I had was she can’t be in New York. She is running from the city and people in that city, so I thought, well, if a super rich assassin is trying to hide in plain sight, do it in the biggest and brightest city she can find. And since Vegas has not been thoroughly explored, especially by Elektra, it seemed the perfect new place for her to go. All those bright lights cast a lot of shadows, and that’s exactly where Elektra operates."

Where this actually comes from is the old Swamp Thing epic, "American Gothic", and the notion of examining a character's mind-boggling true nature and origin story. I mentioned this to Alan Moore and he pointed out a couple of things about dogs and welding that I actually found very helpful.
