I've always thought that one of the characters that Bendis writes the best is the Kingpin, which is understandable given his start in noir/crime comics. Here is one such scene.

This week, I was wondering what comic book characters are from Boston, Massachusetts. Emma Frost is from Boston, though she talks pseudo-British. Cloak of Cloak and Dagger is from Boston. To my surprise, Dane Whitman, the Black Knight is from Gloucester, Mass.

But instead of a post with those characters, here's post about Kathy Malper, a female Daredevil supporting character who (somehow) was never romantically involved with Matt Murdock..

 Wow, it must have been years since this was first announced. Now we're finally getting it starting in October. I'm very excited.

It's basically the "final" Daredevil story with Brian Michael Bendis and David Mack writing and Bill Sienkiewicz and Klaus Janson on art. More info can be found here.

As much as I'm liking Miles Morales, I really miss (Ultimate) Peter Parker. He was probably one of Bendis' best characters.

There's so many great moments with him but one of my favorites is this hilarious scene in Ultimate Spider-Man #12.

Basically Peter has gone after the Kingpin after finding out that his uncle's murderer was once employed by him. The Kingpin finally confronts him at the conclusion of the story and we get the following exchange...

So as you know, Black Panther: The Most Dangerous Man Alive's ending in February.

The current Kingpin vs. T'Challa arc wasn't intended to wrap it up- there's an interview from this year's San Diego Comic-Con where writer David Liss briefly discusses another one to consequentially follow- but the book's sales've been decreasing since its inception post-Shadowland (there was a Fear Itself bump, but only for the issue introducing the somewhat controversial American Panther), clocking in below 20,000 copies moved for the last few months.

I can understand why readers didn't buy into the Panther, especially post-Doomwar (and, of course, post-Hudlin), and I know there're titles more readily captivating. It's just that his book's getting cancelled, just as it was beginning to hit its stride, is quite an unfortunate bit of timing (but understandable; at least Fisk and T'Challa's battle is getting to conclude as intended).

Especially since its protagonist had also done so, by throwing off some of the more awkward elements of his post-Shadowland status quo. )
