Nostalgically revisiting the comics of the 1980s since 2008.
A bad year for the Avengers! None of them rated inclusion? Daredevil at center stage: never before and never since!
I thought that looked terribly odd as well...
I guess Frank Miller gave him a popularity spike around this time. Personally I love (pre-Miller) DD but he seems to be forgotten more often than not.
Mark Waid has been doing an amazing job capturing that pre-Miller DD. Have you been reading his latest run?
I have not. They market comics so poorly I wasn't even aware of it until around issue 20 and then the cost per issue is prohibitive. The art even looks good, unusual for a modern comic. If I can find a reasonably priced TPB I might read it. So far I keep seeing thin hardcovers with prices way too high.
