Not to be confused with the lovable steed from Toy Story, Bullseye is one of Marvel’s deadliest villains, and one of Daredevil’s fiercest antagonists. [Read more…] about Bullseye Reading Order
This is potentially controversial, and may require a more detailed write up at some point, but pound for pound, I’d argue Daredevil has the most consistently excellent modern solo series of any Marvel hero.

Ever since I started reading Waid’s run on Daredevil I just can’t get enough and this issue is no exception. Although most Marvel fans are conditioned to run into their panic room at the phrase tie-in, these Original Sin ones feel like they finally got it right. I like getting a small arc focusing on the back stories of the characters I’m already reading. I think it was a smart way to let creators join in without taking a huge left turn away from the ongoing story. [Read more…] about Daredevil #6 Review!

Guys… I haven’t been the biggest fan of Ed Brubaker‘s run on Daredevil. It’s a shame, and I love Brubaker’s work on a number of characters, from Captain America to Iron Fist, but it’s been a questionable run since The Devil In Cell Block D. A lot of this is unfair because Daredevil has been one of Marvel’s most consistently enjoyable arcs of the 2000’s. Ever since Kevin Smith got the ball rolling, and Brian Michael Bendis put together one of the finest ongoing superhero arcs I’ve ever read, Daredevil has been a highlight. So expectations are higher than Method Man at a Bob Marley tribute concert. This is the major reason why a new arc titled “Lady Bullseye” is a little tough to stomach. And possibly also the reason it’s so refreshing to see Brubaker bring Daredevil back to the level of creativity the arc deserves. [Read more…] about Daredevil: Lady Bullseye #111 – #115 Review
