Daredevil #185 is an incredibly fun issue. The whole Miller run is legendary and throughout it are great individual issues. This is distinct in that it follows around Matt’s partner Foggy Nelson as he goes on his own adventure parallel to DD’s. Of course the best part is when, due to mistaken identity, Foggy winds up face to face with kingpin and having to bluff his way out of it. This issue shows how much ingenuity Miller brought to the title and the depth of character that he built into it, which reverberates in it to this day.
Amazing new title. The Remains begins when a stranger arrives on a family farm looking for work.
The farmer’s young daughters have a bad feeling about him. Meanwhile they head to their barn with their vicious attack dog. The dog hunts down the rats in the barn.
Then the rats come back to life. Insane!
As first issues go this is exciting and sets the stage for an incredibly promising series.

Gorgeous page from Blacksad: A Silent Hell. I’ve read through the Blacksad books and it’s all just perfect. The art is mesmerizing and the stories, classic noir but given flourish, make these books something I can’t put down. The image above depicts Blacksad as he attempts to pursue someone through New Orleans Mardi Gras.

Strange Attractors is an exhilarating book about the city and the machinations that keep it alive. It features mathematicians who discover the patterns that keep the city in working order. A disgraced professor makes “corrections” to avert disasters. When a grad student seeks him out the old professor shares his theories. The grad student doesn’t know if the prof is off his rocker or if the theories are actually true.
This is am exciting book because of how it looks at the complexity of cities, New York in particular here, and the interactions that bring life to it and to its inhabitants. Lots of interesting themes and some great maps and models of the complex systems. As the story progresses the city moves closer to disaster and the characters are pushed to their limits. I found myself reading faster and almost breathless as the patters came together. Really great read.
