If you’re a fan of bold crime fighters, without super powers (well, sort of) then Daredevil may just be the hero for you. Forget the bad Ben Affleck film, Ed Brubaker has carefully woven an intricate, violent crime saga in blind lawyer Matt Murdock’s title these last few years. Ol’ Hornhead has certainly had an eventful life and you can read all about it in The Daredevil Saga, a handy recap of his recent events, right here. A great jumping on point for curious readers, or catch up to past readers, it’s an insightful look at DD’s busy life, as well as offering a sneak peek at Daredevil #111, the debut of Lady Bullseye.
Known as the Golden Guardian of Good, he has the power of a million exploding suns. (That’s a lot of suns.) The Sentry is an interesting character. Created by writer Paul Jenkins and artist Jae Lee in 2000, Marvel touted the character as a forgotten creation from way back in the dawn of Marvel, and only recently discovered in a drawer somewhere. It was all later declared to be a prank, but now the character exists in the pages of The New Avengers as shy, mysterious and way too powerful.
You can now read his adventures in The Age of Sentry by Jeff Parker & Paul Tobin, with art by Nick Dragott & Ramon Rosanos. Yeah, I’ve never heard of them either, but this series, done in the retro style of the classic Silver Age may be some good old fashioned fun. You can find out yourself by reading the first issue for free, right here, on Marvel’s new Digital Comics Unlimited extravaganza. You can buy the paper version on September 17.
