Multiversity Comics: Did you have any favorite Western comics or movies growing up that influenced the series?
Gerry Duggan: All the Marvel westerns, I really enjoyed Jimmy and Justin’s westerns at DC, and too many films to name. Everything Leone, Once Upon A Time In The West, Unforgiven, Tombstone, there’s also some of Friedkin’s Sorcerer in our DNA. It’s not a western, but it’s an amazing film. Star Wars came out a week after it, and the audience dried up, but make no mistake — it’s a masterpiece.

In 2004 Marvel released a Spider-Man title under the 'Marvel Knights' imprint. The basic idea was to make a more "hard PG-13" Spider-Man title with Mark Millar and Terry Dodson delivering a 12 issue arc in three parts. There's no official title for the whole thing but it's been called "Shush" by the fans given the obvious similarities to 'Hush' that was running around the same time; an "epic" about a mystery villain causing havoc that happens to involve the majority of the hero's rogue gallery.
FWIW, while both are a lot of 'style over substance', I enjoyed "Shush" a lot more. You may think differently.
Daredevil: End of Days marks the final installment in my 'Bendis' Daredevil' series (barring any further stories from him). It was published in 2012, six years after his run with Maleev ended. Bendis co-wrote this with David Mack with Klaus Janson providing pencils (and a few guest spots from Maleev).

This is a repost of a series I did way back in 2011. I am sharing it again for two reasons.
1. For the benefit of potential newcomers curious about Daredevil because of the upcoming Netflix series.
2. Comixology is right now having a 99 cent sale on Bendis's entire Daredevil run here. I know a lot of people last time said these posts got people curious about checking out the title so here's your best chance if you want to read them at a cheap price.
For those getting the bundle it also includes 'Wake Up' which was a stand-alone arc Bendis did with David Mack (which in my opinion isn't as good as the main run) as well as the 'End of Days' miniseries which basically functions as a potential "last Daredevil story". Finally in case you decide to just mass order everything I should warn you that for some reason David Mack's "Echo: Vision Quest" arc is part of the sale (but not in the bundle) which in my opinion is the comic equivalent of watching paint dry.
