I like to think I’m pretty reasonable person for a comic book fan on the internet— I wanna enjoy my hobby, so I don’t sweat the continuity or the $3.99 price tag. I try to refrain from doing my best sycophantic loon impression arguing with Dan Slott on the internet. In the long run, I’m convinced this makes my hair look better.
But sometimes shit is just wrong wrong wrong, and writing tl;dr blog entries is the only way to cope. So I present to you the first in a series brought to you by the letter pent-up rage.
Spider-man/Daredevil: Unusual Suspects is a 2001 Marvel Knights mini written by Paul Jenkins and with art by Phil Winslade. It’s a standard Spider-man/Daredevil team up (nobody saw that one coming) with all the paragraphs of expository dialogue only late-90s/early-2000s Marvel comics can provide. The B-plot features a team-up between Black Widow and Foggy Nelson. This is where things go wrong.
So I’ve been doing this series of articles where I look at Black Widow’s costumes and the storylines where they were introduced. There’s not much to say here: Frank Miller had a run on Daredevil. You might not have heard of it, it’s pretty obscure.
