DAREDEVIL #326-332 was a 1994 story called "Tree of Knowledge," where Matt Murdock has faked his death and using the name "Jack Batlin." (Yeah.) But mostly it is about various characters talking about that new Internet thing and what it means for society. That includes Captain America and Daredevil at a tech-rave.

Story by D.G. Chichester and art by Scott McDaniel.

DAREDEVIL #307 is the start of the "Dead Man's Hand" crossover with NOMAD and THE PUNISHER. It starts with Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson going to Las Vegas. And Matt has a seizure because his super-powers are just the worst.

The story is by D.G. Chichester and the art is by Scott McDaniel. The art isn't as "cool" as his later DAREDEVIL or NIGHTWING work.

I personally think J. M. DeMatteis is one of the most underrated comic writers out there. His most famous work is probably 'Kraven's Last Hunt' for obvious reasons but he was also responsible for 'Going Sane' with the Joker and this story, 'Crime and Punishment', featuring Two-Face.

D.G. Chicester's DAREDEVIL run had some great stuff like LAST RITES. But he also had things like FALL FROM GRACE and TREE OF KNOWLEDGE. It was part of the "Matt fakes his death and uses the alias Jack Batlin" era fans like to ignore, even though that led to Foggy finding out The Secret. KNOWLEDGE also had characters getting very paranoid about the internet. The Scott McDaniel art is good, though.

So, it's Batman Day, huh?

BATMAN #600, the final part of "Bruce Wayne: Murderer" had Batman say "There is no Bruce Wayne," get into a fistfight with Nightwing, and then run away to one of the mini-caves around Gotham. Also, Jason's memorial case got smashed because that's what happens when there is a fight in the Batcave. And then "Bruce Wayne: Fugitive" starts This is to provide context.

Time now for the latest issue of Teen Titans. You'll recall that the team 'ported back to the 21st century to find Bunker and Beast Boy fighting for their lives on Tim's yacht, which is apparently the worst-guarded secret headquarters ever.

It's kind of a long story. ), all that happened. *shrug* Reboot, anyone?

Hi ho, gang! Yes, i'm still alive. I got ill in February and was either in hospital or recovering and not allowed to drive til recently, and so missed the last couple issues of Teen Titans. But! Now I have both the ones I missed and the latest in hand! So I figure i'll do one post on the back issues and a separate post for the new. I have here six pages each from Teen Titans #28 and #29 - sounds like a lot, but there's at least one double-page splash from each ish.

You'll recall that when we left our merry band, the remaining Titans had joined Kid Flash and Solstice in the 31st century, where Bart was apprehended and put on trial. Being in the future enabled Bart to break through his Echo-created "witness protection" personality and become the evil revolutionary Bar Torr again, and submitting to the trial was part of his scheme - with all his world's power brokers gathered to watch him hang, his forces were able to strike at all of them at once, to the Titans' dismay.

We now join the battle already in progress )

Stay tuned, gentle readers! Same Titan time, same Titan channel!

You'll recall that during the whole Forever Evil megillah, the Titans got stuck bouncing at random through a whole mess of fractured timelines and Raven was called upon to stitch them together and reunite the group. Doing so landed them in the future in TT #25 where Kid Flash and Solstice watched pre-KF Bar Tor commit his heinous crimes.

In TT #26 Kid Flash recovered his memories and explained it all to the Titans - his parents' deaths at the hands of the Functionary for continuing to worship God, Bar's escape with his little sister, leaving her in an orphanage while he went off to start the Revolution, his turning himself in to Echo when he realized their big strike had killed his sister - and the Titans were horrified.

Now, the Functionary has put Bart in the dock for the Trial of the Century.

Things aren't always as they appear to be... - raven, as the trial begins )

Back in ye goode olde days, Gotham villains didn't need no stinkin' telekinetic powers or rotting corpses to do their bidding. No, they got by through bein' tougher than the toughies and smarter than the smarties, and makin' it square. Well, as square as drug-running, arms-smuggling, "protection"-selling, and cold-blooded murder can be, anyways. Of course, the sheer snazziness of their character designs didn't hurt, either.

Like most of you, I imagine, I can't muster up any enthusiasm for the new Ventriloquist running through the pages of Gail Simone's Batgirl. As dull as I'd found Peyton Riley's story, I'd happily take her (preferably written by Paul Dini) over this SAW-wannabe any day.

But, as with many things in life, none can compare with the original.

Out of the three Dixon/Beatty Year One storylines, I think that I might like Nightwing: Year One best.

Now, general consensus is that this is the least liked of the three - but more often than not, those complaints tend to be about elements that I can't really bring myself to care about (the Teen Titans, Kory vs. Babs, Jason, etc.). Plus, there's the art - in my mind, Scott McDaniel is the Nightwing artist, and though the loss of his usual Nightwing inker Karl Story is regrettable, I still consider it leaps and bounds over the art of the other two.

(That's not to say I hated the art on the other two - but often, it struck me as a poor man's Bruce Timm or Darwyn Cooke. Still, there's a really nice scene from Batgirl: Year One that I need to post here sometime, that really shows off the benefits of minimalism.)

Chapter four, in particular, is probably my favorite. Dick's back in Gotham, going out and about and getting in the faces of every lowlife he can find - gotta spread the new Nightwing identity somehow. Throw in a date with Babs-as-Batgirl, plus a slew of appearances from villains that Dixon always writes beautifully (in other words, Two-Face and Freeze are nowhere in sight), and you've got one gem of an issue.

Sadly, since this issue is so popular here on scans_daily, I will not be able to post the awesomesauce Penguin sequence. It's somewhere on the Internet, though - you'll have to find it yourself. Instead, let's skip forward to Arkham Asylum, where a certain green-haired clown is about to join in on the fun.

I have occasionally mentioned how in the Post-Crisis DC Universe, Dick Grayson got the idea of the Nightwing name from Superman. Superman told him about a Kryponian legend. I was wondering if that would be used in NIGHTWING #0, but it wasn't. (There wasn't anything on Dick going from Robin to Nightwing.)

So, here are the pages from NIGHTWING #102 where Dick visits Metropolis after Batman fires him as Robin.

As promised, this is the second mega-posting to celebrate the end of "Dude(s) in Distress Week", dealing with published images... (This is sort of a "Greatest Hits", as much of it has been posted before)

The history of the "Dude in Distress" in graphical literature is a long and noble one... there are probably medieval woodcuts showing that sort of thing, but as that slightly predates most of the usual area of scans_daily, we'll skip to something vaguely more recent... well, relatively speaking.

LOTS of scans under the cut, but I've used smallish thumbnails so as not to kill your broadband completely! Just stun it slightly...

Over a century of Dudes in Distress )
