Daredevil is dead. Long live Daredevil! It’s left to Ben Urich to find out why Matt Murdock fell off the grid and generally became a recluse until the day of his death. Will some light finally be shed on this case or will Urich be left further puzzled? More after the jump!
After a childhood accident that left him blind but with super senses, Matt Murdock dedicated his life to defending Hell’s Kitchen. As the hero, Daredevil, Matt fought many urban criminals, like Bullseye and the Kingpin. By day, he works as a lawyer, usually seen defending several superheroes from public persecution. Daredevil comics have been the cornerstone of gritty, dark comics for Marvel, launching the careers of several prominent writers and artists.
Marvel Comics has released a sneak peek of Daredevil: End of Days #1 that you can check out, after the jump.
Blue Lantern, Saint Walker, has become a bit of a fan favorite since his introduction, and David Mack whipped up this piece for the variant cover for Justice League of America #56.
My jealousy for those able to attend all the great comic book convention continues to grow whenever I see the panel, signing, and booth schedules for the various publishers.Â Image Comics has sent its rundown, and there are plenty of things for Image fans to do this weekend.
Throughout the convention the Image Comics booth will be home to signings galore, a convention exclusive cover of the superhero debut JERSEY GODS and an array of creators including Rob Liefeld (YOUNGBLOOD), Whilce Portacio (SPAWN), Frank Cho (LIBERTY MEADOWS), Richard Starkings (ELEPHANTMEN), Glen Brunswick (JERSEY GODS), Josh Williamson (JOHNNY MONSTER) and Vinny Navarette (DEAR DRACULA).
Shocker Toys has been working closely with independent comic book creators to bring a new line of action figures to the market.
Indie Spotlight Comic Book Heroes: Series 1

Made of sturdy plastics and hyper-articulated joints, these figures can be posed in many ways. Each comes with extra hands, accessories, comics or posters and an Isz from the Maxxâ€™s world. Collect all 7 figures and their UPC’s to mail away for a Mr. Gone figure, the sinister dark enemy of The Maxx.
Take the jump for a more detailed breakdown, larger images of the figures, and a preview of Series 2.
As reported earlier, Marvel has nabbed the rights to Philip K. Dick’s Electric Ant novel and plans to turn it into a mini-series.Â I have a feeling most of you reading this are familiar with Dick’s work, but if you aren’t, his stuff is as close as you can get to near future reality with a heavy dose of mind warping paranoia and questioning of reality.
His work has been adapted into feature films like Blade Runner, Total Recal, Miniority Report, and more, and now his text work is getting the comic treatment with David Mack and Pascal Alixe on board to do the adaptation.Â Overseeing the work will be Consulting Editor Brian Michael Bendis.
Instead of reading through all the hype and hyperbole Major Spoilers boils down the Mondo Marvel Panel to present you the stuff you need to know now.
