06/22 - DEFENDERS #1 2nd Printing

Sweet Christmas! THE DEFENDERS #1 Returns For Second Printing
New York’s ultimate street team is off to an explosive start

New York, NY—June 22, 2017—Individually, they’ve kept the city of New York safe from its biggest threats. Together, they’re a force to be reckoned with – and the world agrees! Ahead of its highly anticipated second issue, Marvel is pleased to announce that DEFENDERS #1 has sold out and will immediately return for a second printing.

Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Daredevil, and Iron Fist have all had their share of hard fights while protecting the streets of their city. But with Diamondback having returned from the dead, The Defenders are now being targeted – and it’s a fight they can only win if they stand together. Writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist David Marquez bring their A-game to a story that Comicsverse calls “a fantastic beginning to a series perfect for both long-time fans and new fans looking to scratch The DEFENDERS itch before the new season on Netflix.”

“The Defenders may not appeal to readers specifically hoping for a traditional take on this superhero team, but anyone who enjoyed Brian Bendis' work on books like Daredevil and Alias will be happy to see him return to this cast of characters. And with David Marquez at the helm, this series immediately gets off to a strong start.” – IGN

“Defenders #1 feels a lot like a veteran musician revisiting the sound that made him great (and won Bendis Eisners) over a decade ago.” – Graphic Policy

“This team might not be A-listers like the Avengers, but that doesn’t mean that Defenders still don’t pack a heck of a punch.” – Newsarama

Don’t miss the comic everyone is talking about when it makes its way back to comic shops this July. Already caught up and itching for more? Make sure you pick up DEFENDERS #2 when it hits comic shops next week!

05/10 - Marquez Sketchbook has a new interview and feature with DEFENDERS artist David Marquez.

"It’s always a challenge to be consistent with how the characters are portrayed in other books they may appear in, but also have my own take. I certainly reference how other artists have drawn them, but I give myself a lot of room to play around on the page. I let some details shift and change, as long as the character is still recognizable. For any artist, I feel pretty strongly that the reader wants to see our take on the character."

05/02 - DEFENDERS Teaser

Some minor spoilers, as most Daredevil fans already know what's coming... but here's the latest teaser for THE DEFENDERS!


05/02 - DEFENDERS Interview

Coming in June is THE DEFENDERS, the comic series by Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez, and today the duo, along with SVP of Publishing Tom Brevoort, had a conference call to discuss the title.

"There are so many places to take these characters within the context of a street-level hero," Bendis said. "This is one of the great joys of staying at the company — you can leave Jessica for a few years, come back, and the character is still reacting to the world around her, and the Marvel Universe has shifted so much. It's all worth exploring. I'm writing all-new material about these characters that I love so much. Because they're in a different place in their lives, it feels brand new to me."

Don't forget to also pick up the FCBD edition of THE DEFENDERS as a back-up in the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY this Saturday.



05/02 - Susan Varon Interview

I had the chance to speak with actress Susan Varon, who plays Josie (of the bar) in Marvel's Daredevil on Netflix.

04/23 - Marvel Legacy

This fall, Marvel will be kicking off a new initiative where they will be returning long running titles back to their original numbering.

It all starts with MARVEL LEGACY #1, a 50 page one-shot by Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic, with a four panel fold-out cover by Joe Quesada.

"Beginning this fall, long-running Marvel Universe titles will revert to their classic legacy numbering, honoring and restoring their long history, as new and epic storylines launch under the Marvel Legacy banner. Featuring clean entry points for every series, titles resuming their original numbering will be clearly marked with special trade dress and cover treatments. And that’s just the beginning!"

So what does this mean for DAREDEVIL? We know we have issue #24 in July, so if the next issue is part of this plan, will it be issue #591? (All the volumes 512+36+18+24). Or will they wait for issue #600?

• Will it be enough to defeat ARCADE and escape his clutches? Or will she play right into his hand?

04/17 - Marko Zaror in DEFENDERS

THE DEFENDERS has finished filming and we recently learned the launch date of August 18th.

We know of most of the major casting, but today we learned that Chilean actor Marko Zaror played a role in the show.

In a newspaper interview, Zaror revealed his role as Shaft (of the Chaste). We've seen some of the other members of the Chaste in DAREDEVIL, and this cements the suspicion of the Hand in DEFENDERS.

Some of Zaror's other credits include MACHETE KILLS, the FROM DUSK TILL DAWN series on Netflix, and as The Rock's stunt double in THE RUNDOWN.

A post shared by Marko Zaror (@markozaror) on


04/16 - DAREDEVIL Sales Data

Some updates to the Sales Data page this week, as all of the 2017 issues of DAREDEVIL so far have been added (issues #15-18), and all of the new "Running with the Devil" series (ELEKTRA, KINGPIN, and BULLSEYE).

There were some curious numbers for all, as there were several drops. First up, the spin-off series:

ELEKTRA #1 had the highest debut (and sold more than DAREDEVIL #17 in February) with 44.3K, but the second issue sold 19.7K, down almost 25K.

KINGPIN #1 debuted with a strong 36.1K and the second issue had a relatively low drop of 11K to 24.8K.

BULLSEYE #1 had 33.5K but #2 has slipped down to 16.9K. Some troubling drops for all.

DAREDEVIL had two issues in January, selling 36K and 33.2K respectively. By issue #18 in March, DAREDEVIL's sales are down to 28.1K.

So, is it just a case of lower sales across the board? Are people not buying monthly printed comics?

I asked the question of my Twitter followers (@manwithoutfear), just to get an idea of what's going on... please let me know when you get a chance.
