"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 used to think that hardcore Legion fans were the most unforgiving, impossible-to-please readers. Then I started writing the Hulk." -- 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

"I really do just dive down inside myself and connect [to characters I write] however I can. With Banner, I see a guy who claims he's driven by all the right things but, secretly, knows that some of his momentum comes from darker places he doesn't want to address — places like jealousy, regret, fear of never leaving a mark. And he's come to find that it's all self-sabotaging nonsense." -- Mark Waid

This is a one-shot Marvel recently published to celebrate 50 years of Daredevil comics.

"It was outgoing editor Steve Wacker's suggestion to forego an obvious retrospective and instead flash-forward to Matt Murdock's 50th birthday." -- Mark Waid

I picked up a few regular comics as well as the free ones on Free Comic Book Day. After the previous post where young Nova asks some semi-relevant questions, I noticed that he's doing it again in Original Sin #0.



As the new kid on the block, I guess it's only fair that he gets to be the viewpoint character for expository information.

Amazing Spider-Man: Family Business is the latest book from Marvel's original graphic novel line, whose aim is to produce stand-alone, original stories (so never previously published as standard comics) by big name creators. (Ellis and McKone's Avengers: Endless Wartime, previously posted to these parts, was the first book of the line.) This one's 90 pages in all, so here's slightly fewer than 30 of them.



"This is more than a comic you'll read -- it's one you'll re-read. Not just a good Spidey story, but a great one!" - Dan Slott

"I said there were two Marvel heroes whose adventures would be perfectly suited to digital - Dr. Strange and Daredevil. The ability working in digital lends to showcasing the bizarre, unusual ways in which both of them view the world - that was a big lure for me." -- Mark Waid

(Keep in mind that ROAD WARRIOR is a digital comic, where the pages are meant to replace each other on one's screen. Seeing them instead lined up vertically, one on top of another, like in this post, makes for an awkward reading experience at times.)

"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

"It’s a cross between Apocalypse Now and The Island of Lost Souls, or The Island of Dr. Moreau. But really, it was my own personal pitch of what would happen if John Carter, Conan, The Shadow, Doc Savage, and Green Hornet were in a story together." -- Dean Haspiel
