  • 28/07 - [Farewell to the Dean]
  • Longtime Daredevil fan and regular contributor to the message board, Pete Gouldson, wrote this poignant obit for "The Dean" Gene Colan, and wanted to share it with all the readers of this site. Here it is in its entirety, and thanks Pete, and thank you Mr. Gene Colan.

    Farewell to The Dean

    It couldn't have been easy, being Gene Colan. The artist himself spoke at length about the sacrifices involved in his craft, the time spent in lonely solitude long into the early hours, meeting deadlines in the days when deadlines meant something. At great personal loss to his family, and to the deep regret of the man himself in later life, the time that could have been spent with loved ones would often instead find him slumped over his drawing board. Hours ticked by, deep into weekends, deep into night. The burning glow of the table lamp pierced the dimness and cast long shadows on the wall as his pencils gave texture to his own imaginary shapes with their own imaginary shadows. Here a unique world was conjured within the itself unique world of comic books. A fine wine of the rarest vintage, here was a rare cinematic elegance in an industry which then as now looked at the bottom line, where copy was everything, and successful formulas were understandably copied and churned out. Although such a mindset is prevalent within most other artistic forms, many within and around comic books suffer an inferiority complex and see it most of the time as silly, escapist, fun for kids. But Gene Colan was serious about his work, and he wanted us to be serious about it too.

    At Marvel, as the Sixties turned into the Seventies, the dynamic style and vision bestowed to the form by Jack Kirby had started to be copied and regurgitated. Many of the new artists emerging where producing, in retrospect, just a watered down version of Kirby's genius. But it could never be equalled. Many like Barry Smith would go on to evolve their own distinctive style, others such as Neal Adams where often held up as superior to 'The King', but much of his work and others at this point still use the language and syntax of Kirby. Stan Lee was at pains to get Kirby to show the likes of John Romita and John Buscema just how it should be done. But Lee was astute enough to know that in Colan he had an artist who was just, well, different. As early as the mid 1960's Colan had managed to evolve a style and storytelling technique all his own. A man, when let loose by Lee using the famous 'Marvel Method', who had left the scribe exasperated when pencils came back on an early Daredevil with a whole page devoted to someone turning a doorknob and walking through a door. Left of field, a loose canon perhaps, but it seemed somehow beneficial to keep Colan around the by-then imaginary Bullpen, a gentle breeze wafting through the open curtains; an understated complement perhaps to the Kirbyesque tornado pulverising all in its path.

    On first sight, to these then young eyes, Colan's gentle breeze actually felt like a tornado and was something of a shock. It certainly wasn't easy to discern the feelings I felt when viewing his artwork for the very first time. In retrospect I was lucky, I've always preferred the Colan experience to be in glorious black and white, and I was doubly lucky in that his work graced the pages of my then, as now, favourite Marvel character, Daredevil. It was the 26th January 1974, and the character had just returned by popular demand to the weekly anthology flagship title 'The Mighty World of Marvel'. The strip had earlier ran through reprinting DD Volume 1, #1 through #6, each split into two parts alongside other reprints featuring early issues of The Incredible Hulk and The Fantastic Four. The strip was a hit, but had given way to make room for a double helping of the more popular Hulk. After the demand for the strips return saw a return to the Hulk/DD/ FF line up, before carrying on where they left off with DD#7, the editors quite rightly decided to reintroduce the character with an origin story, a reprint of the Roy Thomas / Gene Colan DD #53 from the late 1960's. Despite Thomas using the same linier progression and even much of the very same dialogue as originally used by Lee, the artwork inhabited a different dimension from the original Bill Everett depiction. Here, in black and white, alongside a Herb Trimbe Hulk and a Kirby FF, Colans pencils ooze mood and menace. The atmosphere created is one of high tension; there are things at stake here, beyond the usual superhero ballyhoo. As a young reader, the safety net somehow seemed to be missing, the panel layout itself was disorientating, the unusual shapes swirl around the page avoiding the guidelines I'd been used to. The angles each panel were 'shot' were unusual, body proportions looked odd, looking as we were from obscure angles. Colan 'shoots' a good Samaritan asking a newly blinded Murdock if he needs help crossing the road from the bottom up, giving a visual that seems seeped in intrigue and drama so strong it could warrant a cliff hanger ending. I sensed that here was an artist who didn't play by any rules I'd come across as yet. The whole thing almost made me dizzy, Gene had made me work harder than I ever had thus far, trying to decipher his visual cues, even in this retelling of a story I already knew and had read less than a year earlier. It was almost a relief when the strip soon carried on where it had left off; a week or two later we had exquisite Wally Wood artwork back and this strange two week aberration was almost forgotten.

    But not quite. Because once you've seen Gene Colan's stuff, you can't really forget it. The title eventually started reprinting Colan's DD work from the beginning. Using what I later discovered to be the 'correct' American numbering of the original book, he had started at #20, getting into his stride in my eyes by #25, and in his long run never looked back. Gene was the artist on Daredevil and that wonderful long run of issues mean for many today he still is the Daredevil artist. My lucky break in finding so much of this stuff in the reprint pages of British Marvel meant that the mood and atmosphere created by many Gene Colan pages were witnessed in the first instance in glorious black and white, many of which for me (later purchasing the American originals), had their power and impact diluted with the gaudy addition of colour. I remember one issue being mesmerised by Mr Fear, a Marvel 'B List' ham villain. As realised by Colan, a black and white full page reveal night shot looking up at the character through the rain on a rooftop remains the closest a comic book page has ever come to terrifying me. In retrospect, it's the precise moment that Gene Colan became one of my favourite artists.

    It was during the 1970's when much of Marvels output began to be rendered in a poor dilution of the wonderfully epic Kirby formula. With the King gone however, and Lee himself taking on a less hands on role in the day to day running of the books, Gene was one of a small handful of artists who actually blossomed. Even if he had always been one of the artists who 'did his own thing', his vision became even more focused at the very point when it became more versatile. Marvel seemed to use him to wide effect, and having already had much success with the likes of Daredevil, Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Captain America, he seemed to thrive even in realms outside of the usual super heroics. The somewhat odd, left of field style of Colan became the cornerstone of one of Marvels best loved 1970's titles, Tomb of Dracula, and he took to it as if here at last was the title he was born to draw. As good as Wolfman's imaginative scripting is, the macabre shadows so central to the world of the Lord of Vampires could not have been rendered than anyone apart from Colan, for much of the time aided by his best inker, Tom Palmer. The art was such an integral part of the book, that when Gene begged off the title due to burn out after a staggering 70 issue run, scribe Marv Wolfman decided that continuing was rather pointless, and the title was cancelled.

    At the other end of the scale, Gene relished the comedic aspects of Steve Gerber's scripts for Howard the Duck, a cult title that, if dated now, is only down to the fact of Gerbers then relevant social observations, rather than the wonderfully loose and flowing pencils that gave shape to the crazy world of Howard. Gene had a blast having the rare opportunity that he could 'do' comedy and satire too.

    If regime change at Marvel suddenly saw Colan's style as somewhat out of date as we entered the harsh 1980's, with new young blood entering the fray, rivals DC eagerly employed him to great effect, where work on Batman, Wonder Woman and Night Force among others showed readers what Marvel was missing. Marvel themselves could quite rightly with retrospect look back on their decision to oust Gene as perhaps being correct ( the new young blood on Daredevil went by the name of Frank Miller who went on to revolutionise first the book and eventually, along with the likes of Alan Moore, the industry), but while this particular reader loves what came after as well, he remembers entering the harsh 1980's reliving and enjoying more than ever some wonderful black and white reprints of Colan's work in the UK Marvel Super Adventure weekly.

    He left us with a lot we can relive and enjoy. Rest In Peace Gene, and thanks for everything.

    UPDATE: A full write-up of the blog is up on CBR, along with more preview artwork and covers! CBR

    Some quotes from the liveblog:

    "Gene pretty much invented the way he drew. Nobody else put a page together, put a panel together, told a story the way he did. He was notoriously difficult to ink because so much of what he did was in shades of gray." - Tom Brevoort

    "As a person, this might be a strange thing to say, he [Gene] was like a muppet. He was a very gentle and sensitive sort of a guy who had a real almost childlike wonder about the stuff that he was into." - Tom Brevoort

    "For the first couple of years of its existence, the Daredevil book didn't have much of an identity. It kept changing direction, it kept changing tone, it didn't quite know what it was until Gene came along and very quickly gave it a tone. Even more than Stan Lee, he was the key in giving that book an identity." - Mark Waid

    "My first introduction to Daredevil was through Gene Colan. For me, he's synonymous with the comics of my youth, the first comics that I read." - Axel Alonso

    "When it comes to Daredevil, Gene Colan wasn't my introduction to the character, but he's the one that I think of. " - Paolo Rivera

    "All three of these guys have been doing top shelf work for me on Spider-Man over the past couple of years. Daredevil was just a tough nut to crack." - Stephen Wacker

    We're following nothing but class acts and nothing but really good runs of the book. Readers expect a certain tone for the book and a certain tone. We all knew that Daredevil needed a little something." - Mark Waid

    "Without getting rid of the noir feel of the book, the realism of it, let's take the super hero dial and move it up just a few notches to get back to a bigger sense of adventure, a bigger sense of a world outside of Matt Murdoch. Let's fold him a little more rigidly into the Marvel Universe. He's always been the outsider, always. He always got along with the heroes but was never a team player." - Mark Waid

    "Matt's not scared of anything anymore, he has no fear because nothing else can happen to him. He can pretty much stand whatever happens." - Stephen Wacker

    "We wanted to give him a win every once in awhile." - Mark Waid

    "There's a bit of a location change for Matt. He's been in Hell's Kitchen for a long time now because it fit the character. I look around Hell's Kitchen now in 2011 and I think 'mission accomplished, Matt. You've done it.' We're making all of NYC a part of the book." - Stephen Wacker

    "You're following the work of guys who have really set a bar with the character. But what excites me, outside of Captain America, Daredevil was always my favorite Marvel hero growing up. Here was a guy who always solved his problems by diving headfirst into them. I love the fact that in some ways he was the most vulnerable of the Marvel heroes because of his personal setbacks and his power set." - Mark Waid

    "He is not defeated. His father always taught him to get up from the canvas no matter what." - Mark Waid

    "Foggy is the most important member of the supporting cast, always has been. I love their friendship, I love their partnership, I love that he's the brains of the outfit." - Mark Waid

    "Even though they're allied as legal partners again Foggy has his suspicions. There's something that's just not right about Matt, there's just something off. That's going to drive their relationship for the near future." - Mark Waid

    "Dakota North is out there. We have a new Assistant District Attorney who I love. As far as the villains go, I think we've played out ninjas and the Kingpin plenty for the time being. Let's start mixing it up with villains that we're not used to seeing in Daredevil." - Mark Waid

    "The idea of Daredevil fighting Silver Surfer appeals to me." - Stephen Wacker

  • 07/06 - [FRINGE writer on movie]
  • The Daredevil reboot has long been rumoured to be based on a certain well-known DD arc, and on June 3, VARIETY reported that Daredevil is being written by David Scarpa & Brad Kane, and produced by Peter Chernin & Dylan Clark:


    Today, several online sites posted more about Brad Caleb Kane, including some confirmation of sorts of the rumour of the storyline. Kane is a writer on FRINGE and is a big DD fan.


    Kane responded to a "good luck" tweet of mine by saying "Thnks. We'll do our best to do right by him (and the fans!)"

    Director David Slade also tweeted "Yes, Brad and I are meeting daily to work on the script, and yes "Born Again" is our main source material with all its grittiness."

    As mentioned, looks like BLACK PANTHER is going to become... AMERICAN PANTHER! CBR has the exclusive promo!


  • 20/03 - [Waid talks Daredevil]
  • Newsarama has a new interview posted with Mark Waid, where the new DAREDEVIL writer discusses what readers can expect in July.

    "Shadowland was about as dark as Matt could go, and while Daredevil will not be a happyshinyretrobright series by a long shot, we are gonna tweak the tone a bit and have Matt play a little more firmly in the Marvel Universe proper. A little more humor (people tend to forget that Matt's actually a clever wit), still plenty of danger and menace, still at heart a crime book...but we plan to deliver a Marvel comic that, you know, despite its excellence, won't drive you to drink."


    Newsarama also had this video interview:

    Newsarama video

    CBR also has an interview with Waid as well...

    "Tonally, it's still very much a crime series, but we're toning down the noir a bit and playing up the high adventure a bit more. He's the Man Without Fear. I want to see that constantly. I want to see him diving face-first into perils that would make Green Lantern shriek like a little girl."


    Marvel.com posted this interview when the announcement was made...

    "I love playing with how Matt has come to accept and deal with the fact that his dual identity is fairly common knowledge, and how he's now turned that to his advantage."

    And finally IGN has got an interview as well...

    "Oh, they don't trust Matt a lick. To them, Daredevil's become that guy you want to like but who has a reputation of disappointing you at all the wrong times. No one's sure WHERE Matt's head is at when this series begins, including the readers, and together we'll find out."

  • 20/03 - [Slade discusses rumours]
  • DAREDEVIL director David Slade posted some info on Twitter today about the movie:

    "Forgot to look at the internet for a few weeks and its a litany of false (and not so far off) rumours."

    "So without breaking confidentiality, yes Daredevil, we have a great outline for a very strong character driven take on Mr Matt Murdock."

    "It will bare no relation to the previous Daredevil movie in any way. We are at early planning stages and have not yet discussed any cast."

  • 19/03 - [Waid, Rivera, Martin!]
  • The news is finally here... your new team on DAREDEVIL is Mark Waid, Paolo Rivera and Marcos Martin! AMAZING SPIDER-MAN fans will definitely know all three. More details here:

Kicking off with Moon Knight #1 in May, the Eisner Award-winning team of Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev as they delve deep into the psyche of the titular hero and embark on his greatest adventure yet. Then, the world's most feared vigilante -- Frank Castle -- returns to clean up the streets of Marvel Universe this June in The Punisher #1, from a blockbuster creative team that will have everybody talking. Finally, Matt Murdock returns to New York this July in Daredevil #1 to reclaim his place in the Marvel Universe. But where does the man known as Daredevil belong?

    "Fans are going to love what we have in store with Big Shots," said Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso. "We're taking some of the best Marvel characters that we all know and love and sending them in a brand new direction with some Grade A talent. We want to reach a whole new set of readers while at the same time appeal to long time fans of these great heroes and Big Shots is how we're doing it."

    This summer, prepare to be blown away by the Big Shots!

  • 30/01 - [Interview with Kuljit Mithra]
  • Yes, it's a silly headline, but Colin Bell of ComicBooked.com contacted me a few weeks back to see if I'd be interested in chatting about this site. Comic Booked has been showcasing DD all this month, and Colin wanted to chat with people who ran DD websites. So, here we are, after trying for a few weeks to schedule it. Many thanks to Colin for the interview and I hope all of you enjoy it. Hopefully my rambling doesn't embarrass me too much.


  • 25/01 - [Daredevil Dialogues]
  • CBR's Tim Callahan and Ryan Lindsay have started a conversation about Daredevil's history, and part 1 is now posted. It's an interesting look at their views of what makes the character tick and which creators are worth reading.


  • 24/01 - [Reborn Script]
  • Thanks to DD fan Aron, who pointed me to DAREDEVIL writer Andy Diggle's web site. Diggle has various scripts available for download, including the full script for DAREDEVIL: REBORN #1. It's an interesting look at the format he uses and the notes he made for artist Davide Gianfelice. Click on the SCRIPTS link in the top nav.


  • 24/01 - [Elektra Cosplay]
  • This set of pictures is from late last year, but I only saw it this week as DD fan Joe F. sent me the link. It's a behind the scenes look at a photoshoot for Jay Tablante, taken by former ELEKTRA artist Carlo Pagulayan. They even used Pagulayan's costume designs.


  • 20/01 - [DD Logo Study]
  • Letterer Todd Klein has just finished a great study on all the DAREDEVIL logos over the years. I bet you don't know who designed the very first logo! Klein analyzes all the fonts and styles used, and who was responsible for each (with a little help from yours truly as well). Check out all four parts!

  • 16/01 - [15 years!]
  • Another year has passed and suddenly it's 15 years that manwithoutfear.com has been around. Things certainly are different now. When I first started the site, JM DeMatteis was finishing off his run on the title. I hand scanned images to upload, using my 486DX-33 computer and 14.4 modem. Marvel.com didn't even exist yet.

    I've often been asked why I started the site and why Daredevil in particular. The first part is easy to answer. I was bored. I was studying at university in 1996 and one of my friends was experimenting with this "HTML" thing he was learning. I started playing around with it and put together a pretty basic page. And I kept at it, just adding more info, more images, etc. Back then, it was really difficult to find any DD images online. I was just doing it for myself really. Suddenly, people started emailing me, letting me know they'd checked out the site and liked it.

    So why Daredevil? Not sure, to be honest. I'd always been a fan and it was the only comic I was collecting at the time. As many others, I had drifted in and out of the comic collecting hobby, but kept getting the latest DD issue. There's something about the character that I've admired ever since I picked up my first Wally Wood issue of DD.

    Over the years I've had the chance to correspond with hundreds (thousands?) of DD fans all over the world, and even DD creators that I never dreamed I would get a chance to speak with. It is very humbling for me to hear that DD fans know about the site and visit. The site was created to be my way of showing my appreciation for this character and it serves as a resource for old and new fans alike. It's not about me. It's about Daredevil. If you've ever met me, you know it is embarrassing when people make a big deal about the site (or me).

    I have been very lucky (and I say this every year). I was just in the right place at the right time. It could have been anyone who started a DD site and kept going with it. I spend more time on the site than I really should. But it's worth it.

    Here are some pics of past incarnations of the site. Hope you guys enjoyed the 2 interviews I posted to help celebrate the anniversary. There might be a surprise interview coming later this month too.

    Once again, thank you.

  • 11/01 - [REBORN Interview]
  • The DAREDEVIL: REBORN interviews continue, as writer Andy Diggle speaks with Newsarama. Remember, DAREDEVIL: REBORN ships tomorrow!


  • 07/01 - [More Previews]
  • In case you missed it, here's the DAREDEVIL: REBORN #1 preview again, along with BLACK PANTHER #514 and HEROES FOR HIRE #2, all shipping on the 12th!




  • 07/01 - [Two new interviews!]
  • To help celebrate the 15th anniversary of my site, I've prepared two new interviews...

    First up is SHADOWLAND artist Billy Tan...

    Interview with Billy Tan!

    We discussed all things SHADOWLAND and he shared some cool sketches.

    And the second one is former DAREDEVIL colorist Christie "Max" Scheele...

    Interview with Christie "Max" Scheele!

    We discussed her early work and why she left the comics business (and has no regrets about it).

    I'm working on some more cool things for the anniversary, and hopefully they work out too. I'm glad these two worked out and hope all of you enjoy them!

  • 06/01 - [DD Reborn Preview]
  • Next week's DAREDEVIL: REBORN #1 is now available for preview at CBR. Written by Andy Diggle and drawn by Davide Gianfelice, with covers by Jock!


  • 01/01 - [Happy New Year!]
  • Happy New Year! The year ahead for Daredevil fans will be an interesting one, as we may not even have a regular DD title to read. REBORN comes our way on the 12th (it was pushed back a week). Brian Michael Bendis has mentioned on his board that DD: END OF DAYS will be coming our way this year as well. So, hopefully, we still have some DD to read and discuss this year.

    As you've probably noticed, I've changed up the look a bit, in preparation for the 15th anniversary of the site coming on the 16th of this month. I've got quite a few cool things on the go and I hope all the stars align to get those to work out. Anyway, I'll talk about those more if/when they happen on the 16th. And I'll talk more about the anniversary later this month. I can't believe I've been doing this for so long either.

    So, I hope you continue to enjoy visiting the site and wish you all the best for the new year!
