Charles Soule (who we've interviewed on the site) will be very happy to see that news. I was planning on taking a break from Front Page Review Sabbatical to review 27.


I didn't know anything about this book but it looks really good and is obviously will get some serious attention.

Was going to take R.E.B.E.L.S. because it's a great book and everyone should be reading it - but it's a part 3 and that wouldn't work.

So I go with my 3rd option...

Wow I love that cover. Thank you by the way. Very kind of you.

27 was on the MGS radar months ago.

I kind of think the preview that was up on BC last week looked like balls though.

I'm not reading it. John Stewart isn't in it, therefore against my principals.

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.

I couldn't remember what the pick was when I went to the comic shop so here's a review of Daredevil #512 that's really a review of Heroes for Hire #1:

First off, I love seeing the characters on the cover. Seeing Iron Fist, Moon Knight, Elektra, and the rest on Daredevil #512 actually made me somewhat excited for this series.

As for the issue itself, Daredevil #512 was decent. I enjoyed Marco Checchetto's somewhat realistic, somewhat cartoonish art. It's definitely improved since the last time I've seen his art. The story was alright with some good guest stars/possible stars but, overall, I'll need to see more. I like the last page reveal but I don't think it's gonna last longer than an arc (if Daredevil survives past that).

I like this concept being applied to Daredevil and the creative team ain't too bad but I'll need to check out the trade when it comes out to see if I want to read this series beyond Daredevil #512.

God, I've reviewed most of the Shadowland tie-in issues of this comic so I'll just give my score and call it a day.

7.5* out of 10*

You've confused me because I would have given that Daredevil #512 a 9.5.

I've been doing a lot of comic cataloging over the last few weeks. It's been sort this, catalog that. Put these into the active boxes and move these to the inactives. The cool thing about doing this is that you get a chance to see what exactly you've been pissing your money away on over the last few years. Sometimes, it's well worth the money spent. Annihilation and Captain Britain and MI13 are all examples of books that I had no problem spending money on even though the likelihood of me ever seeing a return on my "investment" (bear with the banker speak, it's become second nature). Then there's the shit books that I wish I could take a time machine and either take out of my pull box before it ever got there or somehow convince the writers as a teen that it was a poor idea. Luckily, there exists online buyers to shockingly buy this crap so I can at least reduce some of the bulk that's accumulating in my apartment before the misses kills me due to all the junk.

Daredevil #512 falls into the latter category. It's not that this was the worst book I've read by any means. Compared to some of the turds in my "collection", this is practically a Picasso. However, it's not exactly good either. It's a bookend to a terrible event that showed promise before it took a Hancock-esque left turn. The art was okay in spots, but terrible in others. The only bright spot was the arrival of Black Panther. If this is what every issue of Daredevil's been like, then it's probably a good thing that T'Challa is about to show up and kick some ass. So, goodbye Daredevil #512. Have fun at your new home in Texas.
