"You can’t really punch anybody – they’re children. I guess you could pick one up by the ankles and hit the other ones with him." -- Mark Waid

"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

"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

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

These are two pages from Bendis and Maleev's back up story from Daredevil #1.50. Their run on Daredevil is easily one of my favorite comic stories of all time and seeing them together again was the main reason why I picked up this issue. I'll admit to being a little disappointed given how brief it is and how different it is from the style of their earlier run but it was interesting to see them try something new in presentation. Without further ado...

"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?

"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
