If you havent read the final bendis Daredevil issue, then Read it and come back...







That was Great!

There are alot of wriers out there who are great for comics. a smaller number who are great for superheroes. To my mind, Bendis is a really good writer who happens to be working in comics.

I'm really going to miss bendis on Daredevil. Every month it felt like a new episode of your favourite tv show. Like a west wing or a soprannos.

Something where you never had to turn your brain off and just go with the sillyness. (Don't get me wrong, I like that too.) In the Bendis run everything was researched, you never had to sit through a sceen you had seen other writers to 50 times before. It felt fresh every issue.

I love the way Matt's mental problems came through the series as a slow burn rather then a quick Snap. (Like Born Again) refering back to the Quite silly Kevin Smith story line and incorprating the sillyness and lack of proper memorial for Karen Page was a great way to make it better retroactively.

Sometimes (not often, but someitmes) I'm not shure Malev is the best artist for the book, but he really pulled out the stops for this final issue. The courtroom excape from pages 3 to 6 was incredable. The Bullseye fight was great stuff. I don't know why, but it seemed to have tighter pacing then the prevous big bullseye fight.

So, on to the Brubaker run. Having previously enjoyed his catwoman reboot I'm really looking forward to it.

So, Anyone else have any thoughts on it?
Were you dissapointed, shocked bored, anoyed he diden't do this or that?

This issue was amazing!

I thought something was wrong when so much was happening in so few pages, but I thought that was just Bendis answering his critics or something. I was really shocked by the ending.

Bru is up there with Bendis, so I'm sure he'll do well on the book, but I will miss the art and writing that it had. At least I'll have their Spider-Woman series if the new DD team sucks. Very Happy

That was great wasent it, where you see how it all plays out if he escapes...

Alot of work for a simple 'What if'.

The first marvel universe book he worked on was elektra, and he admitts that he over wrote his first story (in the elektra dvd documnetary) just because if he was booted out of marvel and went back to indy comics he would be able to say 'Yeah <takes drag on a smoke> I wrote Nick Fury once.. It was cool."

My guess is he wanted to do it just to get out the what if's of his run.

The things he will never get to do now he's of the book.

It could have been an 80 pager all on it's own, but going back to the courtroom would have been a crappy ending. So the round the world day dreem was a crackin little idea.

I love the ending. so often a new creator has to struggle to get the charicter into the swing of things by trying to introduce alot of plot setups in a verry short space of time. No wonder Brubaker wanted him to be left in jail. It gives him a perfect place to start from and a great direction for his arc.

Did you feel that the 'I am your kingpin' thing got a good resolution? I'm still left not quite shure about it.

These things always seem like a good idea at the time. Like when you chase a squirrel around a lot, sure it's fun, but then it turns around and jumps on your face.

It did solve the crime problem at least!

I enjoyed this comic a lot, but am very dissapointed.

I am dissapointed because its the end of one of the most amazing comic runs I have read, I know that Ed Brubacker and Brian have actually worked really closely on the take over point, with brubacker having a large input into where bendis ends.

I loved the whole run, he has been brilliant and the maleev artwork superb. Its different but very distinctive and very butifully paced, although I love david macks work as well. I think the unusual style of artwork, compared to most superhero artwork is part of teh magic, as Benids' story was definatly of a high calibre and very mature.

I havent felt like this since issue 66 of Preacher!

the flash forward had me sold for a minute, I was sure it was real, impressive.

anyhow, I supposse its not entirely surprising that as one great story ends, another may begin, and have high hopes for the new Hellblazer writer, Denise Mina, and really enjoyed her debut, with issue 216.

but despite this, I will miss Bendis on Daredevil, and well, I wonder will brubacker come up with the goods.

I really enjoyed Empathy is the enimy. Great opening to the new Hellblazer.

I'm Listening to the podcast right now. It's really fun to hear the creators bounce off each other. it's the kind of thing you would love to hear more of out of DC.

Imagine the converstion between the writers when vertigo was at it's height.
*sigh* ah well, happy days.


*podcast has got on to the Brewbaker talking about his first issue issue...."

Foggy?? I mean... FOGGY? WTF?
Not feeling real confident now...

Just read 82.

Wow, that certainly does not bode well.

Not quite as good as Bendis, but certainly brilliant.
