"The approach is actually tonally wildly different. DAREDEVIL was an intensely internal narrative; Matt was telling his own story in first-person-immediate narration, whereas it would be a mistake to get that far into Natasha’s head. She’ll have her secrets from the readers." -- Mark Waid

"It really does feel like we left DAREDEVIL at the right time, at what we felt was a peak; and the energy we had there, we transfer here." -- Mark Waid

"Us pulling out all the stops. Not being afraid to go crazy, not being afraid to break toys. There’s a whole new sense of pacing we’re playing with." -- Mark Waid

"I think the finished comic reads like a natural leap from what we were doing in DAREDEVIL, and yet feels completely different." -- Mark Waid

"I have never had a better creative experience in comics than with Daredevil, and I hope it showed. I never dreamed I'd ever get this far into Matt Murdock's head, and now it's going to be a hell of a task to get back out of it." -- Mark Waid

'It's a tightrope that's tougher to walk than it might first appear. It would be so easy to turn this into such a straight up super-hero book that it may as well be Spider-Man. But, again, if that's the approach, then why not just write Spider-Man? Likewise, it would be equally easy to do nothing but street level crime stuff, but again, I'm not as good a crime writer as Bendis. I'm not as good a crime writer as Brubaker. Why go that route? From my point of view, this seems like the first time in 15 years that somebody has given me the keys to the car and said "do what you wanna do", and I have, and it's succeeded. Generally, I do what I think is best to reinvent a franchise and write for the non-hardcore audience, and the nerd rage is off the charts.' -- Mark Waid

 Hopefully this is acceptable here given Chris Samnee's tenure as a comics artist.

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.

"One of the only reasons I still hang on to FLASH is because I know beyond any shadow of a doubt that the moment I walk, the next guy's gonna drop a safe on Linda Park's head before my last voucher's been paid." -- Mark Waid, in another era

"Chris Samnee really wanted to do Stunt-Master. I don’t know why, but he really wanted to do Stunt-Master. He really wanted to do an Evil Knievel guy on a motorcycle and I’m fine with that, that’s issues 11 and 12..." -- Mark Waid

'In dealing with medication over the years and trying to figure out the best cocktail of pills to treat my depression, one of the most uplifting things I heard came from a physician who was listening to me worry about side effects. He said, “The whole goal of taking medication is to minimize the side effects as much as possible so you can best live a normal life.” And that goes for non-medicinal cognitive therapy, too. In other words, don’t feel like you have to accept that there are crippling, inescapable side effects to treatment– that’s giving up control.' -- Mark Waid
