BOP – Daredevil 100
ROW – Madame Mirage
No audio show for it this week. I wasn’t really enthused about anything that I read this week, except for the JLA Wedding Special, in fact I read it twice.
Daredevil 100 was really thick because after the main story there was a reprint of two issues featuring the first appearance (I believe) of Mister Fear. It is interesting to compare Ed Brubaker (one of the best writers out right now) and Gerry Conway (one of the most underrated writers of all time). There are also a bunch of extra in the back showing the development of some of the art pages that were pretty cool.
Madame Mirage has some of the best artwork out there right now. The story is infinitely better than the one Dini is telling over at Countdown (which was a pretty decent issue this week), but I think that it is because this is more a labor of love.
