This is issue seventy-eight of Daredevil, which I have just bought today, having caught up on the trades. It is by far the best comic being published by Marvel right now; Bendis and Maleev have been unstoppable since the beginning of Underboss, back in issue twenty-six. That’s a brilliantly sustained run of excellence. Forty-seven issues so far (don’t forget Echo’s Quest by David Mack, there in the middle). That’s a lot of pages.
A lot of pages. And this issue continues the trend. Good work by Bendis and Maleev, only it’s totally unreadable. Too many pages. Forty-eight, you see. Forty-eight pages, and do you know how many of those are story pages? Twenty-two! And that includes the previously page.
Less than half of this comic has any comic in it.
Fuck you, Marvel. I’m waiting for the trade.
