Well, she was, and it still happened, for Matt Murdock to try and forget that is just ridiculous. But as I said, Waid seems to realise this, and there's a darkness underpinning this new Matt.

Yep, I've been saying all along he's being written to be overcompensating for his recent past, not quite "in denial" because he's being pretty open with Foggy about it all, but definitely trying to turn a deliberate corner with his own life. Wouldn't you? Even if not, a lot of people would.

I don't know what I'd do, but I wouldn't be so cavalier about things.

Well I'm all burned out on Daredevil now anyway, just killing time now until BlueStreak responds to my taunts about Spider-Man 666. :P

My last two picks were largely derided indy books. So I went for the biggest book of the week, knowing it would continue to draw out the RG lurkers.

Plus, who isn't excited for MJ swinging around New York in nothing but a Spider-Man shirt? Besides Starlord.

I'm anti-prologue!

The Fear Itself Prologue was written by Brubaker and was still utter crap.

According to this cover, it's not a prologue, it's a prelude.
