  • 06/11 - [A Million Hits]

    As I write this, the main page of the site has been visited 999,175 times. More than likely in the next few hours, the 1,000,000th hit will come through. If any of you have been here from the beginning, way back in 1996 when the site was on my university server, you know how much this site has grown. I used to get excited if I got 10 hits in a day back then. I still work on it every single day because I know there are many people who love this character as much as I do. I've had the chance to discuss DD with readers all over the world, interview many DD creators, and now be part of the promotion for the movie... a movie I thought I'd never see in my lifetime. It's been fun and I hope I can continue keeping this site going for as long as I can. Many thanks to each and every one of you. This site only exists because of your continued support. Thanks, Kuljit.

Also, as I glom onto some DD movie press… look for me in premiere magazine kissing frank miller’s ass.

    Also, The interview in the November issue of comics explorer came out pretty damn good.

    ITEM! ALEX MALEEV is back in America and back to work! I will be posting new covers soon. They are amazing. But who is drawing DD 40? Which top ten artist i have never worked with has stepped in to wind up the trial of the century- stay tuned…

    DAREDEVIL: THE MOVIE And DAREDEVIL: YELLOW Lead A List Of DD Graphic Novels!

    A month before the highly anticipated Daredevil film hits the bigscreen, Marvel is offering retailers an arsenal of tools to bring movie-hungry crowds into their stores. Starring Ben Affleck, Alias's Jennifer Garner, The Green Mile's Michael Clark Duncan and Minority Report's Colin Farrell, Daredevil is being pegged by many Hollywood insiders as the next winner in Marvel's string of hit films that began with X-Men, Blade and Spider-Man. To help retailers profit from this pop culture event -- and provide curious readers with a wealth of Daredevil and Elektra excitement -- Marvel is publishing the following items in January 2003:

    DAREDEVIL: THE MOVIE -- This 48-page issue, priced at only $3.50, is the only official comic book adaptation of the blockbuster film.

    ELEKTRA #20 -- The Hand, the evil clan of ninja that trained Elektra, are coming to claim their property... but are they up to the task? Acclaimed crime writer Greg Rucka and penciler Carlo Pagulayan present an important chapter in the life of the world's most dangerous assassin!

    ULTIMATE DAREDEVIL & ELEKTRA #4 -- Greg Rucka and Salvador Larroca conclude their Ultimate look at comics' ultimate couple! When the stakes are raised, what will Elektra choose: the man she loves... or her own brand of justice?

    DAREDEVIL LEGENDS VOL. 2 - DAREDEVIL: BORN AGAIN -- This new printing of the 176-page softcover graphic novel, priced at $17.95, presents the classic story in which the Kingpin -- armed with DD's secret identity -- sets out to destroy Matt Murdock's life!

    DAREDEVIL VOL. 2 - DAREDEVIL: PARTS OF A HOLE -- This new printing of the 176-page softcover graphic novel -- priced at $17.95 -- reprints David Mack and Joe Quesada's introduction of the femme fatale known only as Echo!

    ULTIMATE DAREDEVIL & ELEKTRA -- This 128-page softcover graphic novel, collecting all four issues of Jeph Loeb and Salvador Larroca's miniseries, updates the blind adventurer and the sai-slinging shadow warrior for the 21st Century!

    * Spider-Girl #52 has an appearance by Darkdevil


  • 01/10 - [Manga DD Preview]

    Spider-Man: Legend of the Spider Clan #1 ships this week, so I asked writer Kaare Andrews if he could send me some info on the manga version of Daredevil that appears in the series, because some of you may not know about it. He sent me info, AND also sent me some sketches by artist Skottie Young and the cover to issue #2! Here's what Andrews said about DD:

    Let me introduce you to the version of Daredevil premiering in the first issue of Spider-Man: Legend of the Spider Clan with a couple of pics. The first is the original character designs by Skottie Young and the other is the cover for issue 2. Please note that Matt Murdock is a different design than what you see here. Who is this version of Daredevil? He's someone whose true love was taken away from him by dark and evil forces. He's been chasing these forces ever since, punishing himself for what happened and preventing the darkness from spreading in this world, at any cost. He's a pretty extreme character, both physically and emotionally.
    Many thanks to Kaare Andrews for this sneak peek of this version of DD!

    Angela Jackson, at Inside Arts in London, England, forwarded me some info on an exhibit her company is currently running. Artist Dario Illari has produced some DD work and here's more info if you want to check it out!

    INSIDE ARTS IS PROUD TO PRESENT:

    Bright Lights And Superheroes

    Dario Illari

    Bright Lights And Superheroes, by Dario Illari, is a collection of artwork inspired by two of America's biggest fantasy factories: Las Vegas and Marvel comics.

    Aged 20, Dario was one of a group of anarchic artists creating havoc with their nocturnal installations in the city of Perugia, Italy. It seems only fitting that, a decade later, his work is inspired by Las Vegas, the ultimate embodiment of the city as playground.

    In Bright Lights And Superheroes, his stunning, large-scale prints celebrating the motels and neon of Nevada are joined by "DareDevil", a series of screenprints of the 1960s comic hero.

    Bright Lights And Superheroes is showing at: Soho 601, 71 Dean Street, Soho London W1D 3SF throughout September and October 2002.
    Please ring ahead to view - 020 7439 2730.

    For more information on the show, or to buy or commission a piece, please contact curator Angela Jackson at Inside Arts:

    Yes, the rumours were true. Kevin Smith is going to be writing Daredevil/Bullseye: The Target! Thanks to Niko for the link:

    * The official Daredevil website at www.daredevilmovie.com has added a new intro Flash piece with Elektra.

  • 24/07 - [Daredevil: The Target]

    If you've picked up Previews today, check out page 184. Marvel has solicited a DD poster, painted by Glenn Fabry. The blurb associated with it proclaims "Daredevil: The Target" to be a huge Marvel project coming in November. The image has DD with a blue and white bullseye behind him. Hmmm... anyone care to speculate on this one? Is this the rumoured Kevin Smith DD book?

    The cover to Daredevil #38 is printed as well, and I hope to have that available for you to view later.

    Some other stuff you may be interested in ordering:

    The Daredevil/Elektra: Love and War Hardcover reprints Elektra: Assassin and Daredevil: Love and War, both by Frank Miller and Bill Sienkiewicz. Details on page 181.

    Elektra is getting her own Marvel Select Action Figure, not available in the mass market. Check out page 189 for details.

    If you're interested in comic magnets, go to page 287. Marvel covers are available on magnets, $4.99 each.

    Tripwire Magazine returns with Volume 5 #1 as they focus on everything to do with Daredevil, from the comic to the movie. It's $5.95. More details on page 350.


  • 23/07 - [Trial of the Century]

    Daredevil writer Brian Michael Bendis posted some news on his message board at www.imagecomics.com. Regular artist Alex Maleev will be taking a break from his penciling chores for issues #38-40. The three issues will be published in two months and Maleev will return with #41.

    The arc will be called "Trial of the Century" and will feature many guest-stars. Manuel Gutierrez will be handling the art.

    Here's the DD-related part of Bendis's post:

    Ok. DAREDEVIL- sadly Alex has to take a small break, if he wants to tell you why that is his biz- But I HATE fill in issues. Always did and always will. Never had one yet and I am not about to do one now- so, instead...drumroll...

    DAREDEVIL 38- 40 will be nothing even resembling fill in issues. In fact, its turned into a great ‘hopping on’ point called ‘TRIAL OF THE CENTURY.’

    We are squeezing a three issue arc into two months to give Alex his time and to give him a good head start on our next arc which will take us into the DD movie area and heaving towards the big, big, big DD fifty.

    ‘TRIAL OF THE CENTURY’ is a big, dramatic, heavily researched trial in the marvel universe. It focusses on Matt the lawyer but I don’t want to ruin the surprise of who is on trial or for what. But with the way the story is going in DD- it could be anybody.

    You will see guest stars galore: Reed Richards, Dr. Strange, Power-man and Iron fist, the Sons of the dragon, and Jessica Jones. All kinds of intrigue with actual dramatic repercussions. Don’t believe me... ask the team of legal experts that helped me craft this story.

    All drawn by Manuel Gutierrez who did some damn fine work in Marvel Double Shots recently and I am really excited to see what he does here.

    Think Law and Order Marvel Knights style.


  • 23/07 - [Affleck interview, new pics]

    Ben Affleck spoke with Sci-Fi Wire and discussed the delays the production of the movie has experienced. Also, 3 new pics have been added to the official DD movie web site. Check them out there, or at Comics2Film below.

  • 22/07 - [DD in Film Review]

    In the latest Film Review Special #40, which focuses on Superheroes, the Daredevil movie is featured on pages 62-63. It has a quick rundown on who DD is, and the cast etc. Also, on page 96-97 is an interview with Colin Farrell and Michael Clarke Duncan along with a big picture of Ben Affleck in costume (the same one you've probably already seen). The magazine is a bit pricey at $11.99US/$14.95CDN.

    In other movie news, Premiere Magazine has a very tiny article in the latest issue, where it's written that actress Bridget Moynahan had the role of Elektra before studio execs changed their minds. Their reason for not choosing Moynahan? She was starring with Ben Affleck in Sum of All Fears and with Colin Farrell in The Recruit. Premiere reports that preliminary sketches of Elektra were already drawn based on Moynahan but were changed once Jennifer Garner got the role.

  • 12/04 - [Movie Set Construction]

    I got an e-mail from 'M' who works in an office close to a DD set under construction in L.A. He provided the following info:

    Giant wooden water towers were constructed and set on top of the Historic Arcade Building at 541 S. Spring St. yesterday in preparation for filming.

    The 12-story Beaux Arts building consists of two towers separated by an interior retail section that stretches from Spring to Broadway. The structure was built in 1924 and at that time it was the heart of the city, fronting on two of Downtown's main thoroughfares--Spring Street's financial district and the Broadway theater and commercial district.

    When asked if he thinks this area of L.A. can substitute for New York, 'M' had this to say:

    Let me first say that I am from New York. This part of downtown LA looks more like NY at some times than NY does, especially if you've only seen NYC on TV or in films. For example, nearly 90% or more of filming for NYPD Blue is filmed here, often on S. Main street and S. Spring street. There is a long list of NY type films that are filmed, at least in part here, in what is known as the "Historic Core" of downtown LA.

    Hopefully we'll hear more from 'M' as filming begins!

  • 16/01 - [6 years!]

    Way back in 1996, I put together a really simple page (and I call it that because it really was one page) about my favourite super-hero, Daredevil. It was just a way to waste some time in between classes at school. I didn't think it would end up being the site it is now. Never in a million years.

    Some of you have been here from the beginning. Some have dropped by because of the Marvel Knights relaunch. Others are visiting because of the upcoming movie.

    Now, the site is 6 years old. What do you have to look forward to this year?

    * The Daredevil movie will obviously be the big event this year. I'll do my best to keep updating that part of the site with casting, costumes, storylines, etc. and I guarantee, I will get an interview with Mark Steven Johnson. There's also the video game too.
    * The guys at comicboards.com have set up their own Daredevil message board. They were kind enough to ask if I had a problem with them setting it up, but I gave my blessing. There can never be enough DD promotion! :) I told them I'll keep my message board running here too, because there is a dedicated community here. If you've never checked out the message board on the site, please do so! You can also visit http://www.comicboards.com/daredevil/.
    * The Bendis/Maleev run will continue, with something important happening very soon. The Marvel Knights will return. Maybe an Essential Daredevil book. The Parts of a Hole TPB.
    * I'm working on a in-depth interview with David Mack, and hopefully, an interview with Bill Reinhold will be completed soon.
    * Anyway, I'm probably forgetting something, but I wanted to thank every one of you who is reading this and visits my site on a daily/weekly/monthly/whatever basis. Thanks for all the kind comments over the years. I hope I can continue to keep the site going for many years to come.

  • 14/01 - [DD Video Game]

    Encore Software announced today that it has signed an exclusive 5-year deal to create games based on Daredevil. Their first game will coincide with the release of the DD movie. Thanks to Kevin for the heads up.

    Los Angeles - Jan. 14, 2002 - Marvel's Daredevil, one of the most popular comic book superheroes of all time, will soon come to life on next-generation console systems. Encore, Inc. announced today that the company has signed an exclusive, five-year, worldwide agreement with Marvel Enterprises, Inc., one of the world's most prominent character-based entertainment companies, to publish exciting action-adventure games starring Daredevil.

    Daredevil ranks among the most beloved characters in the Marvel Universe, alongside other superhero icons Spider-Man, The X-Men and The Incredible Hulk. With an avid fan base that numbers in the millions, he consistently outsells his superhero competition. Daredevil currently holds four of the top 25 comic book spots (source: Diamond Distributors, the leading comic book distributor in the world), and over the past 12 months, the comic book series has sold over 2 million copies.

    The game's release will coincide with the world premiere of the highly anticipated Daredevil movie, starring Ben Affleck, which is scheduled for debut during the 2002 holiday season. This live-action film will hopefully be the first in a series of Daredevil movies expected to release over the next five years. It is being produced by Marvel Studios, and distributed by New Regency Productions and 20th Century Fox.

    "Marvel's Daredevil is an enormously popular character with a huge fan base who are eagerly awaiting this videogame," said Michael Bell, chairman and CEO of Encore. "The debut of the console game and the live-action film, will not only dramatically expand that fan base, but also propel Daredevil into mainstream popular culture.

    "For Encore, this agreement underscores our leadership as an interactive entertainment publisher focusing on highly recognizable, mass-market brands. Daredevil will be one of many blockbuster console games our company will publish in 2002."

    Russ Brown, senior vice president of consumer products at Marvel Enterprises, Inc., added, "Videogames are a natural extension of our comic books, and a great way to introduce this core Marvel character to current and prospective fans. To make the game even more exciting, Daredevil will feature supporting roles by some of our other hot characters, including Elektra, a femme fatale from the movie who has a proficiency in martial arts; Bullseye, the ruthless assassin determined to murder Daredevil; and Kingpin, ruler of the East Coast underworld."

    Daredevil's Story Comes to Life

    Daredevil -- also known as the Man Without Fear -- is lawyer Matt Michael Murdock by day, superhuman adventurer by night. Blinded in a childhood accident, Daredevil upholds his passion for justice and rises to superhuman levels through hyper-developed senses of hearing, smell and touch, and extraordinary acrobatic abilities. He uses these skills, as well as his fighting baton and grappling hook - disguised as his blind-man's cane during the day - to battle Kingpin and other malicious criminals from his Hell's Kitchen, New York City, base of operations.

    Elektra - Femme Fatale

    The software publishing rights granted by Marvel include the character Elektra. In the Daredevil videogame, she will have a supporting role where she partners with Daredevil in his battle against evil. In the comic book series, Elektra is key as one of Daredevil's girlfriends and dynamic ally. Her current popularity is evidenced by the sales success of Marvel's recently launched Elektra comic series, and by the major role she will have in the Daredevil movie.

    About Encore, Inc.

    Encore, Inc. is a leading interactive publisher in the videogame and PC CD-ROM markets. In 2002, the company will release such highly anticipated next-gen console games as Jackie Chan Adventures, Dragon's Lair 3D and Circus Maximus: Chariot Wars. As the nation's largest privately held PC entertainment and education publisher, Encore also offers a broad range of titles under internationally recognized properties, such as Sesame Street, Dragon Tales, National GeographicÒ and Kaplan. Encore products are sold in over 35,000 stores nationwide, and in major international markets. The company has been recognized in the past two years by Inc magazine as one of America's 500 fastest growing private companies. For more information, visit www.encoresoftware.com
