Although the last time he was in the comic it was during a pretty awful run with pretty awful art and a worse story. It's unbelievable how bad it was then.

I thought I remembered another time when they met and voila...

Except this doesn't actually count. Ten points if anyone can explain why.

Hmm...outside of the fact that it wasn't the real Surfer (rather a clay simulacrum), I guess I'm at a loss.

Bendis Daredevil is one of the best comic runs ever written. Far superior to any other run.

Nocenti's REAL femiNazi liberal, and real smart, and that run touched on a lot of themes and political agendas that I can easily see (and did see) turning a lot of readers off. but I loved it, even though I was and am about as far opposite on the political spectrum as you can be from where she is, because it was different, and because it was smart, and because it dared to tackle some of that complex stuff, sometimes educating as well as entertaining. it ain't for everybody. hell, it wasn't for most anybody apparently...but I loved it. even got a big multi-arc epic DD story filed away somewhere which borrows and plays off a lot of the Mephisto stuff she did.


How so?

It's a dream? A hoax? An imaginary story? ;)

Because after three years nothing in comics matters anymore and they reset to the same continuity?

well, for example, she had a 1-or 2-issue story in the run that was essentially an indictment of livestock farming for veal/meat/etc. Bullet's kid was nothing more than an anti-nukes protest piece. etc. she threw tons of 80s-era liberal agenda stuff in there.

I think she's interesting. If she ends up in an actual relationship with Matt, I wouldn't have a problem with it.

As for this issue, I agree about the fact that seeing daredevil fly around with the Surfer was just plain fun to see. :)
