    October 10, 2012 12:30 pm While the awfulness of the "Gwen and Norm make the beast with two backs" storyline has been written about many many many times before, I still applaud its inclusion here. Something that horrible must be brought up constantly so that it is never ever ever forgotten or repeated.
    October 10, 2012 11:24 am 2 things: 1: That Scarlet Wich cover is amazing, this trade-only buywe will be picking it up and having Granov sign it at Emerald City Comic Con this year. 2: Major props for the Death Of A Salesman reference! Aurther Miller FTW!
    October 10, 2012 11:09 am Oh man, this looks cool, and I'm excited, but the annoying fanboy in meI doesntnt know how I feel about Young Avengers without Heinberg and Cheyung. They make an awesome team. Still, it will be neat to see where they go.
    October 8, 2012 2:22 pm Yeah.. 2 of the three Comic Shops in my area closed down within the last three months, and I live in Tacoma WA, which is a pretty populated area. They were both pretty good shops to.
    August 18, 2012 2:43 am Ok so….. thinking about this has sent me into full on tinfoil hat mode, and this Is what I have come up with: Marvel has signed up Joss Weadon to do both Avengers 2 and a TV show. At the same time, they get back the rights to Daredevil. As many have already stated, DD would be great for TV, the only question is what Daredevil story works best? I submit, while Millers stuff is awesome (and was tackled with “meh” levels of success in the Fox DD movie) the best run of DD for the TV is undoubtedly Bendis. Think about it, a TV show needs to be much cheaper than a movie, have interesting characters (and since TV is a more grounded medium than film, those characters need to be somewhat street level even in an extreme situation, ala Firefly,) and be episodic in nature, containing many many smaller stories while building over one huge dramatic arc. Bendis Daredevil could do this easily, with the building arc or the unmasking and the public and legal trial of of Matt Murdock through the entire series while we also focus on smaller stories like the Owl’s takeover, his marriage to Mila, etc. There are many great characters that could be introduced, namely Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. The trial can even be mentioned in other marvel movies. Finally, we get to the end of the series and this is where it can get pretty cool. Instead of the ending that Bendis put into his series, we have the ending that he originally intended. The TV show ends with Matt being found guilty and escaping from the law, only to pop up in avengers two as Ronin. The legal problems caused by this could even carry themselves over into what I would love to see in Avengers three, with the reveal at the end of Avengers two of a known criminal on the roster of the Avengers leading to the drafting of the superhuman registration act and the superhero Civil War.
    August 17, 2012 11:49 pm The bubble head was supposed to be Daredevil. Well, specifically it was supposed to be "Matt Murdock as Ronin because he can’t be Daredevil anymore." Bendis talks about it (and about why he changed it after this promo art had been released) in the intro he wrote for the first New Avengers oversized hardcover. Personally, I would have loved it if he had explored what Matt Murdock would have been like as an avenger :) Also, the geek in me that wears a tinfoil hat and makes up conspiracy theories wants to say that he is thinking about what could have been with Daredevil/Ronin on the Avengers because Marvel is getting the DD movie rights back. Ahhh dreams.....
