That plus the $4 pricetag and the fact that many people who rarely post reviews will probably buy this one means I'm going to skip next week. I don't want anyone to think I have any principles though.

Could be, I got my info from Marvel.com:
Marvel is pleased to present your first look at DAREDEVIL #512, the landmark final issue from writer Andy Diggle and artist Roberto de la Torre! In the wake of the shocking conclusion of Shadowland, Hell's Kitchen has been thrown into disarray and Matt Murdock is among the missing. Does the mantle of Daredevil now rest with a dead man? And are his friends, lovers and allies able to cope with what he wrought, let alone atone for his sins? It's the dramatic last stand of a Marvel icon as this era of Daredevil comes to a close, only in DAREDEVIL #512.


DAREDEVIL #512 preview art by Roberto De La Torre
DAREDEVIL #512 (SEP100605)
Written by ANDY DIGGLE
Pencils & Cover by ROBERTO DE LA TORRE
Rated T+ ...$3.99


:smt102 I just don't think I'm gonna be interested in the aftermath of Shadowland if I wasn't even vaguely following the storyline. Maybe I'll Byrne it.

Ain't this when T'Challa joins the book though?

CountD: Greg, thank you for your insights.
Benderbrau: Greg: Unwrapping the riddles of the black man since 2006

Starlord: I swear if you were gay and I wasn't married we'd make the perfect fuck buddies.

Greg: I'd do many things. Coke is not one of them.
Benderbrau: Greg hates all things white.

Benderbrau: Emma, you could learn a thing or two from Greg. Greg does threesomes. That's bi done right.

Read the solicit, doesn't sound like that actually happens this issue, maybe at the end or something like a last page tease.

Probably more reliable, I dunno.

Next week is a lousy week, I can't remember if there's any reason for me to even stop by the LCS.

Is it me or does it sound like this issue doesn't feature either Daredevil or The Black Panther? I don't see the draw at all, if you haven't been a regular reader.

Daredevill hasn't been in the book since Shadowland started. It has been about Foggy and Dakota, it has also been the best part of the event. Shadowland, evidently, doesn't feature Daredevil either but his body possessed by some demon.

Well, ITT, third party information is more reliable if one is trying to make a decision

Uh oh, I'm pretty positive Foggy Nelson is a lesbian.

If there's any other reason for me to go to the LCS, I'll at least take a look at this book. This is assuming Diamond doesn't short the hell out of half the stuff again. I have to take a closer look at the shipping list for next week. There must be something I'm buying.

EDIT: Oh yeah, Supergod #5. No way am I missing that.

Also Kolchak The Night Stalker Files #1.

Thank you for making this post so I wouldn't have to.
