Bendis' Daredevil Part 11: Wake Up



I didn't post this during this during my initial 'Bendis' Daredevil' series but I figured I would now. It's his first Daredevil story that he did and it was a stand-alone arc that took place before his main run began (there was another writer's arc in between the two). It's considerably different in style and tone than the rest of his work.

As a warning, this story deals with child abuse.

Bendis' Daredevil Part 8: Golden Age



'Golden Age' is one of my favorite arcs from Bendis' and Maleev's run on Daredevil. It's just a great combination of writing from Bendis and art from Maleev. It's also largely a stand-alone story so you just need to be familiar with the basic concept of Daredevil being outed as Matt Murdock and later declaring himself the 'Kingpin' of Hell's Kitchen.

Bendis' Daredevil Part 7: The Widow



Not related to Bendis's run but most of Frank Miller's run on Daredevil is available on Comixology right now for 99 cents an issue for one day only here. It includes Miller's run up until #184, as well as 'Born Again' and 'Man Without Fear'. Just a heads up.

Bendis' Daredevil Part 3: The Trial of the Century



For those on the fence, the Daredevil Comixology Sale ends tonight at 11 pm EST.

Also as you probably know the new Netflix show stars tomorrow. I would like to ask that people refrain from discussing spoilers in the comments for these posts just for the benefit of those trying to catch up.

Bendis' Daredevil Part 1: Underboss






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.

and 

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.

Showcasing the Black Vortex! Transformations!!1!



So in Guardians of the Galaxy #24, a Black Vortex amped and power drunk Gamora tries to convince her and Beast's teammates that the Black Vortex is too valuable to be destroyed by showing them what it can turn them into by submitting to the Black Vortex and becoming cosmic versions of themselves.

Ultimate Prowler: Part 1



I hate to drag on him too much but, as I've stated a couple of times, I think Miles is at this point a fairly boring character. He was introduced in 2011 and he doesn't even have a proper rogues' gallery at this point. His father has a more developed personality and motivations than he does.

I do think the one big exception to this was the 'Ultimate Prowler' arc. To this day it's the high point of the series for me. Looking at again it works because this is one of the few times where Miles is dealing with something that isn't the equivalent to Peter Parker's scraps; it involves him on a very personal level. I think if Bendis has used this approach for the rest of the series it would be a much better scenario.
