Bendis Has Big Plans For Daredevil This Fall Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors
Wonder what that means, if anything, for Mark Waid's new DD book.But it looks like Daredevil is going to be back front and center in a big way this fall — joining the New Avengers with issue #16 written by Bendis and drawn by Mike Deodato. The Daredevil- End of Days mini-series will subsequently be released, by Bendis and David Mack, art by Bill Sienkiewicz, Klaus Janson, and Alex Maleev.
Bendis is adding Daredevil to his New Avengers lineup in Issue 16, out Sept. 14, to be teamed with such old friends as Spider-Man, Luke Cage, Iron Fist and others, some of whom haven’t forgotten his actions during the recent Shadowland debacle.
This fall also will finally see the release of Bendis’ Daredevil- End of Days miniseries, a The End story written by him and David Mack with art by Klaus Janson, Bill Sienkiewicz and Alex Maleev. Bendis has been quiet in it because it didn’t match what was going on inShadowland, “so we put it on the backburner,” he says. “It’s really, really beautiful.”
Ok, as much as I dug Secret Six...it was petering out a bit. So a Suicide Squad relaunch has my attention as long as Deadshot is in(The Wall would be a plus, and Rick Flagg would not be unwelcome either).
What say you about the weird retro feel to the new DC universe Adgy? Supernaturals playing in the same fields as capes? Blackhawks(updated), Sgt Rock, and other oddities getting front and center love. Deathstroke(who really should be DC's stern answer to Deadpool) getting his own title(again). We are a Kamandi and Kobra away from the DC titles of my youth. Sad thing is, half this stuff will get cancelled because it is too odd for the younguns and too different for old fans like me. As always, DC has brave ideas that are doomed to fail in a fickle marketplace.

Secret Six is done. BoP is changed for the worse. Gail Simone is writing Batgirl (Babs?) and Firestorm (which we all know won't last past #12).
Still no word on PG or Zatanna, so I guess those are done too. Worst is that $3.99 prices are back.
I'll be paring-down my DC list to a tiny sliver of what it was 2 weeks ago.

And I still think things will likely go back to the status quo in about a year. Comic fans rarely embrace wholesale changes like this, it seems to me.
Like I said before, I'm all for revamping creative teams and taking chances with it, but I really don't think they needed to relaunch every single one of these titles with new #1's to do that.
Also, for some weird reason, I'm a little sad to see the numbering for stuff like Detective Comics and Action Comics get reset. Will we ever see a comic get that high again? I read somewhere that with Detective getting the renumbering, Hellblazer is the longest running series in comics.
I hope that's not a bad sign.
As for the retro stuff... IMO, the lack of a consistent Deathstroke presence has been something DC has been stupid about. He's probably the coolest character in the DCU after Batman and he should have had a monthly and it should have been badass. Hopefully, this new one is at least that.
Beyond that, I don't really have an opinion because I was never that in to DC going up and I don't have much in the way of fondness for them. But, I do think it's going to make for some tough selling.
I'll probably wait until I can get it on eBay for half price or so.
I think Zatanna is going to be in that JLA Dark book.Still no word on PG or Zatanna, so I guess those are done too.
Is that confirmed? I haven't read any sites yet today. Is it just for the #1's, then?Worst is that $3.99 prices are back.
You're probably not alone. The only core DC book I've been buying monthly, though, has been Batman Inc, so they'll be getting more of my money.I'll be paring-down my DC list to a tiny sliver of what it was 2 weeks ago.

Ever since I heard that Dustin Hoffman was a last minute replacement for Gilbert Gottfried(as Mumbles, not because GG tapped out, but because they could get DH) I have had a perverse desire to actually see this.
