Marvel Netflix and Daredevil: Born Again SPOILERS are ahead! Obviously, the following article is 100% speculation.

DEFENDERS

Article by Gregg Katzman

I remember the very first time I saw Marvel’s The AvengersWatching Earth’s Mightiest Heroes unite to take on an alien invasion brought me a ridiculous amount of joy. Immediately, I felt like a five year-old kid watching cartoons – it was that level of fun. Now, Marvel and Netflix are hoping to capture that kind of magic on the small screen with Marvel’s The Defenders.

Daredevil. Jessica Jones. Iron Fist. Luke Cage. (And maaaaaaaaybe a cameo from the Punisher?) It won’t be very long until we see these heroes interact and fight a common threat. Will I get goosebumps all over again when I see these characters join forces? Considering how excellent Marvel and Netflix’s shows have been, the answer will very likely be “yes”. But what will make them unite? What could make the Man Without Fear need some help in his ongoing struggle to clean up Hell’s Kitchen? The Kingpin forming an alliance with The Hand, that’s what! For a show this big (which presumably has Daredevil in a key role), I think they should draw inspiration from a big comic: Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s Daredevil: Born Again. If you haven’t read it, you really should fix that asap. (While you’re at it, here are five other reading suggestions.)

GET READY FOR THE 4th QUARTER!

Can you believe that the Summer is just about over? By the time the first day of school rolls around, the big box chains will already have the Halloween banners up. We cannot get a rest! I say we just whittle it down to two seasons: warm & cold. DONE!

However in the toy world, the fourth quarter means holidays, and holidays means shopping. Lots of shopping, which means that the big toy companies (and the little guys as well) are going to spare no expense as to what Junkies should keep their eyes peeled for once the leaves start to change and the flurries begin. Here are some of the coolest items that I have had my eye on all summer because we are always looking out for you toy Junkies that happen to be rabid Wednesday comic book pull-list cowboys and girls. Take a Fall trip to one of Midtown Comics’ three NYC locations for these upcoming goodies because nothing beats NYC in Autumn.

Daredevil Punisher comics

Marvel and Netflix’s first season of Daredevil – which is the first of many Marvel/Netflix projects – received an enormous amount of love from both fans and critics. The dark and sometimes shockingly violent drama revealed not only the origin of Matt Murdock/Daredevil (Charlie Cox), but also his iconic adversary, Wilson Fisk/Kingpin (Vincent D’Onofrio). When the dust finally settled from the Man Without Fear’s first major battle, Kingpin was behind bars and the street level hero was finally wearing a costume similar to the memorable red one he often wears in the comics. Season 2 is already under production, and it’s adding two classic characters to the show: Frank Castle/Punisher (Jon Bernthal) and Elektra Natchios (Elodie Yung). The second season is currently scheduled to be released in 2016, and we want to make sure you’ve done your homework! So, we’ve put a quick list together of five stories that are absolutely mandatory before delving into season 2. Be sure to contact one of our stores to see if the following stories are in stock. If not, check our website!
