Sorry I didn't get a chance to follow up on this to see if people still wanted to do Lowlife. Real life has been a bit busy. I figure, at this point, we might as well finish Lowlife and Hardcore.

After that, I've heard the suggestion of 353-357 - the story where Matt defends Mr. Hyde. I would love to do this story, but full-warning. It's not collected in trade and only one issue (354) is on Marvel Unlimited). Looking briefly through my copies, I thought it would definitely look fun, but I would definitely be alerting people now to start looking for them before April.

If someone wants something completely off the wall, parts of Steve Gerber's run is available, so we could do some of the more psychedelic San Francisco stuff (maybe 105-107, although maybe 103-107). I'm sure you guys know by now I love tie-ins if we want Moondragon, Priestess of Titan (and daughter of Drax) to appear around the time of Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Full disclosure, though, this story caused me to stop reading Daredevil (outside of the book club) for several weeks, so I'm not going to pretend they're necessarily enjoyable stories. Certainly, I can promise it would be something quite different.

I also think we should do Elektra: Assassin at some point (I was waiting for Defenders to time it that way, but that's obviously not necessary.

I think it could be fun to cover a goofy Silver Age story like Daredevil 8.

I wouldn't mind something in between Lowlife and Hardcore, but I can't think of anything in particular. Perhaps something from the Widow's Kiss trade paperback, or the Micah Synn story?

Micah Synn is just difficult because they're eight uncollected issues. It's certainly one I'd love to cover, but it's two months people can't join in if they don't have them.

For something from Widow's Kiss, we could do the Widow's Kiss story itself or we can do the finale to Volume one (D.G. Chichester's #380).

Here's my tentative thoughts:
1/22-2/19 will be Lowlife since we started that.
2/26 will be Daredevil # 8 with Stilt-Man.
3/5-4/2 will finish up the first Bendis arc with Hardcore.
4/9-4/23 will be Widow's Kiss (DD #368-370), so you'll have time to get the issues or the TPB.
4/30-5/21 will be "Menace From the Moons of Saturn!" and associated Steve Gerber issues.

In the meantime, I'd suggest getting Daredevil #202, 204, 206, 210, 211-214 (Micah Synn story) and #353-357 (Mr. Hyde trial). I certainly would love to finally do those stories.

OK, time for suggestions again. The only real thought process I have is to Daredevil #225 for July 9 in honor of Spider-Man: Homecoming. That leaves six issues open. I was thinking of doing the trial of Mr. Hyde - 353-357 either starting next week or the week after with a one-shot first. Then I have four issues before Defenders come out.

So here are things I could use:
A one-shot. Have we done the first issue with Purple Man? I know we did Yellow, but I feel like recent events make it a good time to do Purple Man.
A four issue story
Something in honor of Defenders - I have a couple thoughts. All are Elektra-related. One, we could just do the Elektra Saga. Second, we could do Fall From Grace. I haven't had anything that gave Daredevil: Father a run for its money yet. Or we could do Elektra: Assassin. Or we can skip the four-issue story and go straight to build up to Defenders. Let me know if any of these ideas interest anyone.

Fall From Grace could be interesting/frustrating. Isn't it more than four issues though?

Yeah, it's far, far longer, unfortunately. Fall From Grace would be in honor of Defenders because it deals a lot with Elektra and resurrection.

If people are cool with Elektra: Assassin, followed by Fall From Grace, that would be about 15 issues with Elektra.

Apparently Photobucket decided to disable third party linking of images. I have no idea what the point of the service is in that case. Regardless, I'm unable to post the comic covers when I do the Book Club.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a replacement service that's easy and simple to use? I'll gradually replace all the images when I get a chance, but it's obviously an involved project, but I'd like to at least get something else going forward.

I was originally planning on doing Fall From Grace next, but that's another heavy story right after a heavy story. Do people want to do something lighter instead? If so, any suggestions?

If you want something lighter, there's the other two stories in Dark Nights.
