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

'It's kind of the first day of the Marvel Universe. It's a very James Robinson story. It's of his oeuvre. If you think of the sort of things he did in the past whether it's "Starman," "The Golden Age" or some of the other things he did around the Justice Society characters that really played with and played into the history of the characters and the lineage of the publishing.' -- Tom Brevoort

"I think I'm being kind by calling cynicism an emotion, but as a point of reference, let's call it an emotion--that has been the overriding emotion in American super-hero comics for the last ten years or so. And that makes me batshit insane. As a status quo, I find it morally repellent..." -- Mark Waid

"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

"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...
