Hi Guys,

Yes, as ever, I'm plugging one of my reviews. Smile

(And I think that there are some extra preview pages along with it that may not have been seen yet, too...)

Anyway, here's my take on DD #111. I'll be interested to hear what everyone else thinks of it. A good first issue with a couple of particularly interesting developments that I've tried not to spoil.

As always, very good review Mr Wallace!

I have to agree that I was very impressed with Clay Mann's pencils as he filled in for Lark on this issue. I'm a huge Lark fan so I obviously want him to stay on the book as long as possible but Mann would be an excellent choice for future fill in work/annuals/one shots.

I was also quite pleased that Lady Bullseye was in fact a completely new character. Brubaker's always been a man of his word throughout interviews and whatnot but with all of the hype the new character has received a tiny piece of my brain feared some cheap Marvel stunt.

Now this being a discussion thread I think it goes without saying, but just in case...
*******************SPOILERS**********************







In the thread about who our favorite female DD characters are (http://www.manwithoutfear.com/messageboard/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=2514) I said I really enjoyed Dakota North but hoped that she would continue to be that platonic friend who kept his self-pity in check. As their time together this issue steamrolled towards the inevitable conclusion I was a little disappointed that Bru went this way, but then I felt better about it with Matt's immediate questioning of his actions. Obviously this doesn't make things right but leads me to believe this is not going to be a continuing relationship.

I picked up the Djurdjevic and Dodson covers and will be placing a bid on the Aja cover sometime next week (my local shop auctions non 50/50 variants for a local charity). All in all a pretty good start to the new arc I think.

Seriously. Who didn't think that Lady Bullseye was a bad idea when they first heard it? Well I for one am ready to eat crow no matter how it's served because issue 111 is the best issue all year HANDS DOWN. Lady Bullseye is AWESOME and Matt's behaviour in throughout is even more fun to watch than when he started breaking fingers to get information in the last issue. Good job Daredevil crew! You guys really knocked this one out of the park!

Yeah, I really liked the way that this development was handled. It's realistic for Matt to be attracted to Dakota - especially as she gets drawn further and further into Daredevil's world - but I also liked the way that Brubaker had Matt immediately question himself and feel bad about their tryst. It shows that Milla hasn't just been shunted off to one side, and that she'll continue to be an important presence in the book.

I don't know about it being the best, but I did like it. I loved the Lady Bullseye origin. It was believable and quite brutal.

As for the Matt/Dakota thing, I have to say that I agree that it was inevitable. It's only natural that Matt would gravitate towards a woman who knows about his work as DD, knows the risks, and accepts them. She brings out a side of Matt that we haven't really seen since...dare I say it...Karen Page. I get the "why" of these two. I didn't want to like this pairing but I do.

The Good: Lady Bullseye got a good start, which is positive as in the recent past, Matt's rogue gallery was a bit stagnant: I like Brubaker adding new enemies.

The So-So: Poor Dakota is now on the death row... No I don't think that Bru will ever kill her, as he's developed her into a very interesting character, and obviously likes her. But what happen when, in the distant furure, Brubaker leaves the series and the next Smith or Smithee writes a hacked story in which Dakota, as an old flame of Matt, follows the honoured tradition of being killed for hack's sake?

The Bad: Dakota not dating Foggy instead ;p

Dito. I managed to spoiler myself by reading a review I knew for a fact contained spoilers, and while I was a little annoyed with myself for it, I think it sort of helped me accept this development before reading the issue for myself. Strangely, I don't mind it. I thought I would. I thought that the two of them would be headed in this direction (or something close to it) eventually, but I didn't think it would happen this soon and as strange as it sounds, the whole things feels natural. I minded Matt's cheating on Karen with Typhoid a lot more. His actions here are very human after all. He's lonely, grieving and he finds someone who makes him feel better. Will this inevitably lead to a relationship right away? Probably not. I suspect he'll be wracked with guilt for a while...

Lady Bullseye... Oh yeah, she was in this issue too. Wink I think she seems like a cool character and I liked the origin, but storywise the aforementioned development sort of upstaged her introduction in my mind. All in all, a really great issue.
