No, and the fact that he didn't is what makes him crazy.

Maybe, but I just feel like there's more to the story than "crazy Matt Murdoch ". It's entirely possible/probable I'm wrong, but something about it is sitting...off...in my mind.

Yeah, that just feels stupid, I know. I trust Waid, even if it does turn out that Matt's batshit insane, to give us a good story. It just gives me that twitch you feel when something isn't as obvious as it might seem. Like we're missing and/or overlooking a piece of the puzzle.

Everyone else on the board was ignoring what was in the comic. All they noticed were the bright colours and pithy one-liners, me and Foggy, we are visionaries!


:smt102

Solicitations were hinting at stuff might be going on.. "Meanwhile, Foggy uncovers more evidence that Matt’s not quite the man he seems." "Nelson/Murdock no more! Foggy’s discovered a secret Matt’s been keeping--and he doesn’t take it well!" "And just how sane IS Matt Murdock?" "Matt’s mind unravels as the Coyote creates chaos!"

I've finished the first issue...wow. I don't know. That backup story...man. Matt feels...wow.

It's not that it's...he's kinda creepy, in a way. I don't know. It was borderline creepy, reading that backup. Maybe that's because I'm reading it through the prism of knowing that Matt Murdock had some issues, but man...something about that backup creeped me out.

Remind me...is that the back-up where he explains his newfound look on life? I can see a bit of a creep factor in hindsight, but the art, honestly, just swept me away.

Yeah, when they were walking around and he was explaining how his powers worked...it was...there was something about when they went to the graveyard where it just felt...creepy. Something about those last four panels, where he acknowledges that he's trying to cope with all the things that have happened and that if he doesn't, he doesn't know if he can stay sane...

That's was kinda creepy to me. The shading they gave Foggy's eyes in that last panel...creepy.

I think Mark Waid always indicated that MM wouldn't be getting off that easily from his baggage. It makes sense, you show someone coping almost too well and overcompensating to hide the inner strain, then you start to show the cracks in the facade.

Also, Foggy looks burned out.

Pretty sure that was the point. Effectively done, no?

Had I known that existed, I would have bought that on the day of release. :-D :-D



Just to let you know. That is the variant version. It was the regular version, but then somebody got pissed (probably mom's) and Hasbro made that the variant.

I want to get that and get Captain America's shield and then super-glue Hope to the front of the shield. :lol:

Seeing Hank Pym inside Daredevil's head was fun. It's not a new concept of course, but it's one I've always liked.

About Matt's father's remains -- put me in the camp that thinks he's being set up.
