"I'm not one of those guys who wishes super-hero comics never grew up. Tell whatever story you want to tell! I would never tell anybody not to do a dark and cynical story with cowboys or super-heroes or dinosaurs or whatever the hell...but just be aware. Bear in mind the fact that you're bending the rules already by telling your dark treatise on the savage reality of the world with your Curious George story." -- Mark Waid

"I think it's really insanely stupid to try to shoehorn characters that were created specifically to entertain children with stories of hope and enthusiasm into this hideously cynical, dark, depressing, life-denying tone of voice." -- Mark Waid

"The chance to repair Matt's integrity was irresistible." -- Mark Waid, on this issue's shake-up

Here are four more pages from the latest issue of DAREDEVIL. Last month, Matt Murdock stated under oath that he was Daredevil. So what's next?

I've only been reading Daredevil for about a year and a half. I think I came on board with #18. Since then, I've been buying back issues off Comixology and just discovered Marvel Unlimited. I'm gradually becoming informed of what's gone on in the last 50 years and recently read the King of Hell's Kitchen arc (DD Volume 2 #56-60 by Bendis and Maleev). In that arc, Foggy had a very valid complaint in issue 58:


From Daredevil 58

That time, Matt went and did something truly audacious that had huge fallout, for Matt, but also made a lot of problems for Foggy.

Matt does something audacious again, but this time, he's learned a few things... )

I think the last time I cried over a comic was back when Cypher died and Rahne was going through Danger Room scenarios to see how many ways she could have saved him. Record has now been broken some 25 years later...

"My Thrillbent partner John Rogers likes to say, 'The most addictive feeling in the world is feeling hard-done by.' To buy into the notion that fate is fate and there’s nothing you can do to take control of your life. It’s a very human way of dealing with problems, but it’s not a very heroic way of dealing with them. That’s what characterized my rethinking of Matt Murdock and what characterized my rethinking of Bruce Banner." -- Mark Waid

'I love the way that [editors] Steve Wacker and Ellie Pyle will always give me enough rope to hang myself. The general process is this: when we write solicitations five months out, I say "Ooh! How about the Silver Surfer! I bet we could make that cool!" Then, weeks later, when it's time to submit the script and the deadline is looming, I call Steve in a panic: "How am I gonna fit Silver Surfer into a Daredevil story?" And he just laughs.' -- Mark Waid

"And I also didn’t want to do the 800th “Oh he has cancer in a superhero book! What will the superhero do? Surely there’s a way to fix it! Oh wait, you can’t beat cancer.” I don’t want to do that kind of story. You know, the story where Daredevil walks around the Marvel Universe for an issue trying to get people to cure cancer for him and being told, “We can go to the Negative Zone, Daredevil, but we can’t cure cancer.” So that’s the first trap you have to avoid when doing that kind of story." -- Mark Waid

"[A]s I got into my 30s and I got into my 40s, I really started to understand a lot more about what I have learned both good and bad from superhero comics as a kid. The upsides -- the obvious upsides: do the right thing, and save cats from trees, and be honest to people, help little old ladies across the street. The darker stuff that you learn... I mean, Jesus, everything emotionally stunted and wrong about me I learned from Mort Weisinger. ... I brought even more personal issues to Daredevil in terms of a lifelong struggle with depression. How you deal with that and don't deal with that, that's something I get a chance to work out with these characters, both Bruce Banner and Matt Murdock." -- Mark Waid
