"“I don't wear white to hide myself. I wear it so they'll see me coming. So they'll know who it ..."

Collector for the sheer passion, as comics have had such an impact on my life. 3rd time around doing so and by far the greatest experience of them all. Lover of Silver Age, but have come around to bronze and dabble in the rest.

Daredevil, Domino and deciding...

It has been awhile since I wrote a blog about anything.  I looked back at my last one, and it was about 6 weeks ago.  I am kind of in the writing mood at the moment, so I thought I would put down a few thougts, for what it is worth.

So, starting off with Daredevil...I passed by the LCS on my way to work to pick up this week's release of Daredevil #611.  It is part 3 or 4 in the storyline of "The Death of Daredevil".  Do I really think Marvel is going to kill off this character?  Well, no.  He is too iconic to be put down, nuff said.  I will say, this particular issue is pretty amazing.  I don't want to spoil it, if you haven't picked it up yet, but DD takes on several villains and puts them to waste.  A little surprise at the end too.  I have been a DD fan for just about forever, picking up storylines here and there, and there have been some great runs.  With #609, the Battle Lines cover is simply gorgeous, and there is a cameo of a new villain the Vigil.  #610 has the full appearance of the Vigil, and I happened to pick up a second copy after seeing the interest online, and hearing the issue sold out.  I did include it in the Price Check on Aisle X feature here, and now see it is included on the "on the move" books rising to $10 today.  

I really hadn't paid too much attention to Domino or her books, but was compelled to get this week's newest issue #8, due to the breathtaking cover artwork which included Morbius, whom I have been a big fan of forever as well.  The story itself surprised me.  It was actually pretty decent, and I enjoyed it.
