  • 29/12 - [MK Encyclopedia info]

    As most of you have noticed, there is a new Marvel Encyclopedia coming in March, 2004, for the Marvel Knights. It will feature Daredevil, Punisher, Ghost Rider & Blade related characters. The Daredevil section will have information on many of your favourites, including Bullseye, Elektra, Kingpin, and some characters you may not have heard about in a while, like Micah Synn, Becky Blake and the Masked Marauder. There is also an appendix, for many of the characters who didn't get a profile in the book. I am honoured to finally announce that the Daredevil characters portion of this book was written by... Kuljit Mithra! I've been working on the book for the better part of the last 4 months (and counting) and am extremely thankful to Marvel for this opportunity. Hope you guys like it! Any questions, please ask on the message board, and I'll ask Marvel what I can reveal.

  • 23/12 - [Bendis update]

    On Brian Bendis's web site:

    "DAREDEVIL HARDBACK VOLUME 3 has some real kick ass extras. I wrote a little valentine to every guest artist in issue fifty where we single out my favorite piece of their Daredevil work. Plus Alex [Maleev] and I saved all the goodies so we really got some good stuff."

  • 12/12 - [More Affleck comments]

    This time in an interview with Dark Horizons...

    "I am not eager to get back into the crimson outfit. It was a really, really, really hard movie to make and was sometimes really frustrating. They want to do a sequel, but what would be really interesting to me was if Kevin Smith wrote it. I don't want to do it just to do more kung-fu in the red suit and I actually think there is an even kind of darker way to go with it. I would do that verbatim, because I think it's a great story."

    Ben Affleck spoke with Sci-Fi Wire while promoting his new movie Paycheck and had this to say about his involvement in a Daredevil II movie.

    "I would do some sort of cameo in Jen's movie - she's going to do Elektra - just because she's cool, and she's my friend. But I'm not banging down the door trying to get Daredevil II made. You'll know when my career is really on the slide when I start resurrecting the franchise."

    Not-so-subtle versions of Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson appear in a story in today's Vampirella Magazine #1. "Mark" is a lawyer who has a friend that looks exactly like Foggy. "Mark" mentions that "I'm not a villain" in reference in the DD movie, and also is admonished by "Foggy" because he mentioned he sleeps in an isolation chamber (once again, in reference in the movie). "Mark" also seems to have a healthy attraction for the ladies. The magazine is probably not suited for all ages, so reader discretion advised...

  • 02/10 - [DD figure recalled?]

    Thanks to David for pointing me to this item:

    From Off The Card:

    Naughty Words Corrupt The Youth
    Today at work while servicing two different Wal-mart stores, 45 miles apart and in two different districts, I noticed something very unusual in the claims booth. What I saw were stacks of the Marvel Legends Daredevil figure, waiting to be returned to the Wal-mart return center. I asked the claim associate(s) about the pull and they informed me the comic included with Daredevil contained inappropriate language for children. I then looked at the e-mail myself and noticed the recall was something to the effect of a manufacturers recall. So maybe Toy-Biz made the recall and this will effect all stores, but that might not be the case. For now look for the ML Daredevil figures to disappear from your Wal-mart stores.

    No idea if this is true or not, but if you notice this in a Wal-Mart near you, let me know!

  • 29/09 - [David Mack show]

    From David Mack:

    Here is an update on my new gallery show that will be opening this week! I have over 300 original art pieces in the show. It is a one man show and has the ENTIRE main gallery of the university that I graduated from. My biggest show ever.

    Included are: The original art from the entire issues of Daredevil #51-53. 33 original art pages from the Daredevil Wakeup story I did with Brian Michael Bendis. Hundreds of Kabuki pages from Metamorphosis, Skin Deep and Dreams (including the entire Ghost play art, and entire Kabuki One Half art).

    Four figure sculptures at real life scale. Large full figure paintings at real life scale and larger. Many, many personal figure drawings, sketches, studies and doodles. A brand new never before published black and white autobiographical 8 page story called .Self Portrait..

    The original cover art to selected published covers of Kabuki, Daredevil, Alias and more. The Tori Amos painting I did for her upcoming calendar.

    Handmade artbooks including .My Invisible Friend. (as seen in pages of Kabuki), Father Hymn Book, Mother Her Book. Child hood robot sculpture and first childhood oil painting and more.

    Also included are many books and books will be available for sale to the public at the night of the opening reception.

    Also free posters and post cards with the show art are free to public at the night of opening reception.

    Reception will have free food and drinks. Including SUSHI! Yum. I hope I have time to eat some.

    Previous update below will have other info dates, times and lecture night info:

    I have a new gallery exhibit of my artwork in October. It will be held in the art gallery of the University that I graduated from and will extensively feature original pages from Kabuki, Daredevil, Echo, and many non-comic related works and paintings.

    The opening night reception of the gallery will be Thursday October 2 from 5-8 pm. It will be held at the main gallery of the Art Building at Northern Kentucky University. Right across the river from Cincinnati Ohio.

    It is a one man show and my work will be up thoughout October but I hope people can make it on the opening night, as there will also be a signing held, a free poster for the gallery show, and books available. On Friday October 22 I will be having a lecture/discussion at the University. Last year NKU had Neil Gaiman do this at the University, and If you attended that you know how fun and interactive this can be.

    The last two years the NKU Literature dept hosted something like this. I did it the first year, and Neil Gaiman did it the second year. This October the art dept is sponsoring my show and working hand in hand with other departments of the University including the Literature dept, and book stores in the area. Both events are free to the public, and everyone is welcomed to attend!

  • 10/09 - [Jon Mefford interview]

    If you've had a chance to go through all the extras on the 2-disc Daredevil DVD, you've no doubt watched the documentaries produced by Sparkhill Productions. I recently had a chance to ask Sparkhill producer Jon Mefford about working on the DVD and meeting many past and present Daredevil greats. Rather than a question and answer format, I just suggested topics and let Mr. Mefford comment as he saw fit. Hope you guys enjoy it! Thanks to everyone at Sparkhill, especially Colleen Rice, for her help with the interview.

  • 28/08 - [2 million hits]

    As I write this, the counter on the site is just under 2 million visitors for the main page. In 1996, I started this site as a diversion from studying at university... it was a small site, but surprisingly, I started getting e-mails from Daredevil fans, and the site started to grow. It moved off the school server, to Interlog, then to my own domain at Boiling Point. In February 2003, the site had over 4 million hits because of the movie! Anyway, I just wanted to say a quick thanks to all the people who visit every day, participate on the message board or mailing list, and to all the great DD fans I've 'met' online. There are some great things coming...

"I'm more concerned with making sure we see things like the rise of the Punisher and Wolverine and the new X-Men, the darkening of Daredevil, Bullseye and Elektra, Phoenix, the Avengers at some of their various peaks through that period."

  • 09/07 - [San Diego panels]

    The San Diego Comic-Con is next week and here is a list of panels/events that would interest Daredevil fans! These descriptions are taken from the Comic-Con.org site...


    1:30.3:00 Late 80s Marvel Bullpen Films
    As a sort of mini programming track this afternoon, Comic-Con is happy to present a series of films made by comics creators. First up: It seems the Marvel Bullpen of the late 80s was a hotbed of creativity.of filmmaking! Here are two films from that time period, recently re-edited and re-mastered just for showing at Comic-Con! Room 6B

    . The Assistant (1988) Starring David Wohl, Howard Mackie, Mark Gruenwald. Directed by Marie Javins. Before he was Top Cow.s editor-incChief, before he co-created Witchblade, David Wohl was The Assistant! This mockumentary was directed by ex-Marvel/Epic editor Marie Javins in 1988, while she was still a college intern. The Assistant follows a day-in-the-life of a Marvel Assistant Editor. The production values may be crude, but this short video is a true gem that shows the fun-loving atmosphere (and downright mayhem!) that used to rule the Marvel offices. Featuring appearances by Carl Potts, D. G. Chichester, Mark Chiarello, Don Hudson, Mike Rockwitz, John Galvin, and the whole Marvel Bullpen! Plus: Jim Shooter and The Amazing Spider-Man!

    . The Freelancer (1989) Starring David Wohl, Mike Heisler, Don Hudson, Dan Chichester, Mark Gruenwald, and Tom DeFalco. Directed by Steve Buccellato and Mike Heisler. A frightening look at the worst day in the life of a freelance comic book letterer! Mike Heisler is about to lose his car, his apartment, and quite possibly his life! Featuring a host of real-life Marvel Comics employees and a peek at what really goes on behind-the-scenes! The "Vietnam Flashback" is simply icing on the cake! Featuring Bob Harras, Ralph Macchio, Chris Eliopoulis, Marc Siry, Sara Tuchinksy, Chris Ivy, and and many more faces familiar to comics pros and fans (only with 80s-style haircuts).

    2:30-4:00 Spotlight on Sal Buscema
    . At one time or another, he drew almost every Marvel Comic, including memorable stints on Hulk, Rom, The Avengers, The Spectacular Spider-Man, and Captain America! In his first-ever West Coast convention appearance, Sal Buscema will be interviewed by Mark Evanier Sal Buscema will be presented with his Inkpot Award at this program. Room 8

    4:00-5:30 Death of the Letter Column
    What the @#$% happened? Time was, the comic book letter column was a hotbed of controversy, intrigue, and fans about to become pros. Now it.s a vanishing breed, with the most interesting examples turning up in some of the independently published comics. Join Marv Wolfman (one of those fans turned pro) as he chats with Batton Lash (whose comics Supernatural Law and Mavis still run letter columns each and every issue), well-known letter hacks Malcolm Bourne and Dana Gabbard, and another fan-turned-pro, Bob Hall, as they discuss the life, death, and future of letter columns in comics. Room 16AB


    10:30-12:00 Comic Books in the Movies
    Some of the warriors of sf- and comic book.themed movies join Stan Lee for an insightful panel about the hottest phenomenon in movies today: the comic book superhero film. Lee, who is co-creator of the characters featured in the biggest blockbuster comics films in recent years (Spider-Man, Hulk, X-Men) and other panelists explore the involvement of independent producers as well as big Hollywood studios in the development of superhero films. Joining Lee on the panel are Creative Light Entertainment's Scott Zakarin (Stan Lee's Mutants, Monsters & Marvels, Comic Book: The Movie), Mindfire Entertainment's Mark Altman (The Specials, House of the Dead), and actress Chase Masterson (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Creature Unknown). The panelists will share the secrets of what it takes to make a successful superhero movie and how to make comic book-themed movies economically. Room 6CDEF

    4:00-5:00 Cup o.Joe (Quesada)
    Marvel editor-in-chief Joe Quesada sits down to talk about whatever you the fans want to ask. Joe shoots from the hip and never pulls punches. Find out what's happening at Marvel right now and what's in store for the future straight from the man himself! Room 1AB

    5:30-7:00 50 Years of Steve Ditko
    From Spider-Man to Shade, from Dr. Strange to Mr. A., Steve Ditko has produced work that continues to challenge and amaze. Celebrating 50 years since Ditko.s first artwork graced comics, Blake Bell (author of the upcoming Fantagraphics book Steve Ditko: The Mysterious Traveler) presents a PowerPoint slide show featuring over 100 images with commentary on the legendary career of Steve Ditko. Room 7A


    10:30-11:30 Marvel Blockbuster
    Marvel EIC Joe Quesada holds an intimate Q&A with two of comic books biggest stars. Join Brian Michael Bendis (Ultimate X-Men, Ultimate Spider-Man, Ultimate Six, Daredevil) and J.

    11:30-12:30 David Mack, Michael Avon Oeming, and Brian Michael Bendis: MOB

Then make sure you're in the audience for their only joint Comic-Con panel appearance as they discuss upcoming projects and answer your questions. Room 1AB

    12:30-2:00 Kevin Smith
    He.s baaaack! And even we don.t know what he has planned. Maybe he.ll tell us about Ben and Jen in his upcoming movie, Jersey Girl. Maybe he.ll talk about his new house. Maybe he.ll tell us about his comics shop. You.ll have to ask him. All we know is Kevin Smith is back at Comic-Con (and aren.t you glad?). Room 20

    3:30-5:00 Art of Marvel's Golden Age
    Comics historian Blake Bell takes you on a 20.year ride showcasing the artists who made Marvel Comics the powerhouse it is today. From Bill Everett and Jack Kirby to Gene Colan and Steve Ditko, rarely has the story of the first 20 years of Marvel Comics (1939.1958) been told through the artwork of the creators who brought Marvel.s classic characters to life. Over 200 images are featured in this PowerPoint slide show. Room 2

    Interview with David Mack

  • 28/06 - [Total DVD and DVD Monthly]

    Thanks to Matt D and Pete who posted on the message board about some magazines in the UK with Daredevil movie news.

    From Matt D:

    I was reading the the July issue of Total DVD - a UK DVD mag (which has DD and Elektra on cover) and next to the review is a little interview with one of the producers of Daredevil - Gary Foster I think his name was. Anyway, he gave the impression that the mythical extended edition DVD was still a goer, but gave the impression that it would not be out this year. He refered to it as "Daredevil 1.5" and how it would have the extra footage when it "eventually" comes out. He also said if the deleted scenes had been included on the current DVD, other extras would of had to be lost, and both Fox and the film-makers wanted the first DVD release to be the best possible for the "best version" of the film. Hah! He also said Elektra movie would be shot before DD2, and that the plan was to have DD and Elektra come together again in DD3. I believe Daredevil 1.5 will most likely be held back from release and be timed with the theatrical release of Elektra (similar to what Fox did with X-Men 1.5.

    I hope all this info is not completely old news, but it was the first I had read in a little while concerning the extended DVD and first confident reference to a DD3.

    Pete then responded with some more excellent news concerning DVD Monthly Magazine:

    ...(or rather stuck to the cover)...they've got a lovely DD DVD preview disc with selections from the DVD, including interviews, behind the scenes snippets, and film clips. Nice!

    Thanks for the heads up, guys! I managed to find images of the magazines, to let you know what covers to look for. Click on the pics to go to the sites for each magazine!

  • 27/06 - [Elektra #25 First Look]

  • 25/06 - [1602 DD details]

    (may have spoilers... so if you don't want to know ANYTHING about the 1602 series, don't read!)

    The latest Wizard has details on the 1602 series by Neil Gaiman. If you want to get the basic idea of the premise, essentially the Marvel Universe has come into existence 500 years early (paraphrasing Gaiman's comments).

    There's a 'Sir Nicholas Fury' who is the head of Queen Elizabeth's intelligence organization... and guess who is the blind Irish street singer that's also Fury's number one mercenary agent?

    Apparently this is NOT a What If? story...

  • 23/06 - [New DVD clip]

    Fox has provided manwithoutfear.com with a clip from the extras on the Daredevil DVD. This clip is of Ben Affleck getting his mould created for his costume. It's available in Quicktime and Windows Media formats. In the coming few weeks, the site will have a contest to give away a copy of the DVD!

  • 14/05 - [DD Game Trailer Summary]

    I had a chance to view the 'trailer' for the Daredevil game coming out later this year. I hope to get some screenshots of it next week. But in the meantime, here's a quick rundown of the 1 minute and 33 second clip.

    * The clip begins with Elektra on a rooftop, in her traditional red costume. She's looking at something going on below at street level.
    * Switch to Daredevil fighting some thugs, in his traditional red costume, with a white billy club.
    * DD jumps across rooftops, uses his billy club line (which looks like it's influenced by Joe Quesada's rendition of DD), and swings from flagpoles
    * We get to see Elektra fighting Bullseye (in his traditional blue costume)
    * We also get to see 'Shadow World', as this is how DD's radar is represented
    * Also get to view a fight between Bullseye and DD

    If you've seen the Spider-Man game, it has that look to it, with 3D versions of all characters and buildings. It doesn't look bad at all! See my news article from yesterday for the game storyline and more details.

  • 13/05 - [Target news]

    Once upon a time, a comic called Daredevil/Bullseye: The Target #1 came out. It was November 2002. Apparently #2 is done. In fact, Kevin Smith had this to say on his message board:

    "Also, for the comics curious: issue two of "Daredevil/Bullseye:Target" is in and being drawn by an Ultimate artist (hint, hint)."

    No word on when it will be solicited in Previews. The earliest it can come out is August, if it's in the next Previews.

  • 07/04 - [DD Ace Edition #1]

    Wizard has already mailed copies of their ACE Edition of DD #1, and I asked regular contributor Clayton to provide a description for everyone, since he's got a copy. Thanks Clayton!

    Wizard Magazine and the Previews offered this reprint of Daredevil #1 (Vol.1) for $12.99 US for US residents and $18.00 US for Canadian residents. Wizard Magazine still offers this issue in their most recent publication (see Hulk Wizard Ace Edition #1 coupon). For those of you that do not know what an acetate cover is, it is basically a clear plastic-like cover that is wrapped around the comicbook's front and back. This essentially allows for the comicbook to have 2 covers. One printed on the clear cover and another printed on the cardstock cover underneath the clear cover.

    J. Scott Campbell (Danger Girl) pencils and inks this wonderful cover. If you did not already know, this is Campbell's second cover gig on Daredevil. He did a great variant cover for Daredevil #2 (vol.2). On the clear cover, an imposing Kingpin stands behind a red-suited Daredevil in a subway. On the cardstock cover, an imposing yellow-suited Daredevil stands over the Fixer (the main villain of Daredevil #1 vol.1) in the very same subway as the clear cover! The clear cover uses the subway from the cardstock cover as background.

    Bendis! provides an introduction to this issue. He has the ability to sell you a wig for your fully-haired head and he should be writing introductions for every Marvel book. He tells us that this is Stan Lee's favorite character and has the reader (at least me) believing this without question.

    After the reprinted origin story (printed on quality glossy paper), there is a 2-page "Twisted Toyfare Theatre Presents..." entitled Daredevil Buys a Car. It is really quite silly (as it is meant to be) and I am quite puzzled that six writers take credit for this.

    It should also be noted that this issue is Silver Age sized.

  • 03/03 - [DD Marvel Must Have]

    Marvel will be printing a Marvel Must Have for Daredevil that will include #41-43 for $3.99. So if you've missed the first three issues of "Lowlife", this collection is an affordable alternative to buying the individual issues.

    From Marvel:

    Last month Marvel offered its first MUST HAVES collection of consecutive issues from one title (VENOM - ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #33-36), and comic shops responded with record orders. Hearing its fans and retailer partners loud and clear, this month Marvel is pleased to offer the latest low-cost Must Haves compilation, MARVEL MUST HAVES: DAREDEVIL (JAN035084 D), collecting DAREDEVIL #41-43, the first three chapters of the current critically-acclaimed "LOWLIFE" story arc.

    "Response to the 25-cent DAREDEVIL #41 has been tremendous, with people checking the issue out because of the attention generated by the movie and the USA TODAY review, and then discovering the work of writer Brian Bendis and artist Alex Maleev," said Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada. "Issue-in, issue-out, DAREDEVIL is one of the best comic books on the stands of any genre. MARVEL MUST HAVES: DAREDEVIL was created to give new readers just catching on to that fact an opportunity to continue with the story started in issue #41, and with the series as it heads to its next big story arc, "HARDCORE".

    "I'm so excited about this collection because ever since we announced Matt Murdock would be outted as Daredevil by the tabloids, people kept waiting for the trick finish or easy way out," added Brian Bendis. "What these issues illustrate is that we have no intention of doing anything like that, so I'm thrilled that people are looking for them and want to continuing following the story!"

    The 80-page MARVEL MUST-HAVE: DAREDEVIL (JAN035084 D) is available for order immediately from Diamond and has an on-sale date of 3/19 and a cover price of $3.99. DAREDEVIL #45, concluding the "LOWLIFE" storyline, goes on sale 3/26 and has a Final Order Cut-off (OIC) date of Thursday, 3/6.

    Fox/Regency Announce New Film Based On Character Introduced to Movie Audiences in Daredevil

    Jennifer Garner to Reprise DD Role

    LOS ANGELES - The hidden clues to the biggest mystery in the blockbuster film DAREDEVIL have been revealed: Elektra lives! With audiences clamoring for more of the female warrior, Twentieth Century Fox and Regency Enterprises today announced that, in addition to a DAREDEVIL sequel, they are moving forward with a new event film based on the Elektra character.
    The new ELEKTRA story will be set after the events depicted in DAREDEVIL. Jennifer Garner will reprise the role she brought to life in that film, and script development will begin immediately.
    Elektra first appeared in Daredevil comics in 1980 with words and art by comics legend Frank Miller. The character is the daughter of powerful and rich Greek business tycoon Nikolas Natchios and the girlfriend of Matt Murdock / Daredevil. Although she possesses no superhuman abilities, Elektra is a consummate practitioner of the martial arts, and wields a pair of three-pronged daggers, or sai. ###

    The movie has brought lots of new visitors, and the site is currently WAY above normal for bandwidth. Comic Book Resources, where I host my site, was very generous to help alleviate some of the costs associated with the extra hits. It's not an issue right now if my bandwidth goes back to normal next month, but if it continues to stay at these levels, I'll have to do something about it.

  • 08/02 - [DF HSN Daredevil show]

    Dynamic Forces Launches The Biggest And Best HSN Show EVER In Celebration Of Our 10th Anniversary!

    Get ready comic fans, because the first show of the year is the biggest, and the best show ever! On February 18th, 2003 at 11PM EST Dynamic Forces will be making a special birthday appearance on HSN debuting some of the coolest comic book memorabilia ever! And not only is this a birthday celebration, but a Daredevil Movie Premiere celebration as well!

    Dynamic Forces will be premiering everything from a Marvel Premiere Daredevil Giclee Signed by the two greatest Editor-In-Chief's of all time The Mighty Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada and Legendary Stan 'The Man' Lee. This beautiful Giclee will not only be signed by Quesada, but features a DF certificate of authenticity and is fully framed and ready to be hung in a place of honor in your home. Collectors wait all their lives for pieces of art like this, but thanks to DF, you don't have to - you just have to wait until February 18th at 11:00 PM when Nick Barrucci brings you the biggest comics show in the world!

    We're also showcasing the Hulk vs. Thing Lithograph painted by John Watson, with a little something extra on each piece by Mr. Watson -- it's our Birthday and we are bringing you the presents and the surprise will be unveiled on the show! Watson, an up and coming painter from the UK, has recreated the classic battle between the Hulk vs. Thing from Fantastic Four #'s 25 and 26 with the two titans pounding each other in the middle of New York and the Avengers and the FF in the background.

    Think we're done? Not even close! It's our birthday, but we're bringing you the presents! Therefore, we have the Marvel Millennium Lithograph Signed by John Estes and featuring all of the major Marvel characters that have prospered through to the new millennium -- the X-Men, Daredevil, Hulk, Spider-Man and more! Wait until you see this painting signed by Estes (and the extra bonus he's added to this baby!)! This one is not to be missed! This show will feature a Lucky 21 Starter Set and this Set is going to be the most ambitious of the year featuring Signed 1st printings of Batman #608 signed by super-star artist Jim Lee himself! And since it's our B-Day, we're adding in extra guaranteed books including the Ultimate Daredevil and Elektra #1 1st print that's sold out everywhere - all for under 20 bucks! We're also offering our world-famous 40 books for $40.00 which usually includes a minimum of 4 guaranteed books in each set, but this time, because it is our 10th anniversary, we're guaranteeing 10 Books in each Set! The fun factor in this is now multiplied by 10!

    Now, we can't tell you everything we're preparing for this Birthday Blowout, but we do need to let you know about the awesome Mighty Marquee Birthday Set. Usually in our B-Day sets, we give you approximately 8 items with super signatures and sketches that you can't get anywhere else. Well this time, we're preparing 15 ultra cool books including: Adventures of Superman #600 Signed and Remarked, Detective Comics #627 Signed and Remarked, the X-Men Movie adaptation Signed by the creators of the movie, the Marvel Knights convention book featuring over 10 signatures including Kevin Smith and Joe Quesada, Daredevil/Spider-Man #1 Signed by classic Spidey artist John Romita and Uncanny X-Men #325 Signed by X-Men movie producer Tom DeSanto and the man of the hour... X-Men co-creator Stan "The Man" Lee!

    What a show!

    Well folks, looks like we've run out of room to tell you everything that's going be happening on HSN February 18th 2003 at 11PM EST(and that's 8:00 PM for our fans on the West Coast) for our premiere show of the year, celebrating our 10th anniversary, and featuring coolest comic collectibles on TV! Be there or be square!

  • 07/02 - [Movie Review!]

    Long-time contributor to the site, Mental Image, was one of the lucky people who saw the Daredevil movie last Friday in California. What follows is a brief excerpt from MI's review:

    Daredevil is a beloved character, for whom generations of comic writers and artists have made a place in the cannon of modern mythology. Into his Daredevil, writer/director Mark Steven Johnson has distilled the essential elements from forty years and hundreds of issues of Daredevil comics. This distillation to a single narrative required MSJ to make choices, some of which may be more painful than others for long-time fans to accept.
    For the complete (spoiler-filled) review, please click here.

    Many thanks to Mental Image for this review! If you want to submit reviews after you've seen the movie, please feel free to contact me. My review comes next week...

  • 16/01 - [7 years!]

    January 16, 2003 brings the 7th year for the site and I wanted to thank each and every one of you for making the 7 years a great ride. The site exists because I know there are people like you who visit as often as they can to get their DD fix. I never thought I'd still be doing this all these years later and I am lucky to have been given this chance to showcase this great character to the world and to its dedicated fans.
